The TBD Devastator does not have a large presence in scale models, the most recent delivered to the market being the 1/48 Great Wall Hobby kit. Eduard, who monitor trends in the aviation kit market, have arranged and delivered two valuable photo etched sets for this kit.

The first set is coded #48735 and is dedicated to the kit exterior details. Parts are in bare metal and include details for the engine, landing gear, torpedo, cockpit canopy framing, elements on the wing surfaces as well as landing gear bay and doors. Parts are simple but very useful. The second set is coded #48737 and this contains elements for detailing the flaps. Parts are again in bare metal and include the complete structure for the wing flaps.

The image gallery above provides close-up details which are a good guide to modelers on how to use the kits. More close-up images can also be seen here!
