Thank you Martin. Something a little bit different than just OOB. Scratching the pod was easier than I first thought. :)

I thought Harold made the Radar Pod?   On a more important note. Great looking TBM John.  Did you also build the Radar Scope?

If Harold does make the pod then I could have saved myself the effort. No, I didn't add the scope. Isn't it down in the rear fuselage for the radio operator? Would be very hard to see so not really worth the effort. :)

Yes its down below. But you wanted clean lines I take it. If you left the starboard side door you could see it.   FYI its on the right just forward of the Door

Looks awesome John! FYI, if you build anything else with that radar pod, Lone Star Models has them in 1/32 resin.  I ordered 2 of them. one for my PB1J and one as a spare.

Thanks! I wish I had known that before I scratched mine. Oh well. :)

Some great TBM's around here in recent times, and I understand why, a really tempting subject. Yours is looking spot on with nice details in the pit. The paintjob fits perfect and hints little usage.

Cheers Rob

Real nice John...you are a machine.:notworthy:

cheers.

All I can do is echo this, and add exquisite, the details make this a truly great build, first the seat, that is so close to perfect, then the radio wire connectors, and then the canopy masking....... its all in the details.... I could look at that seat for hours....... you really nailed that............
