The Avenger was first deployed during the battle of Midway in June 1942 and operated from aircraft carriers and land bases throughout WWII. It proved to be a sturdy and reliable aircraft and the best, most effective torpedo bomber used during WWII. The Avenger was adapted for continued use long after WWII as a transport, trainer, light bomber and fire- retardant bomber in civilian service. This new kit includes high quality Cartograf decals with 2 marking options and features pre-decorated clear parts. Two sets of clear parts are included in this kit, one un-decorated and the second that includes pre-painted clear parts to simulate the canopy windshield and canopy frame.
