"Another WW2 Moment"

  "Grumman TBF"

I can't explain it. Commie Queer Anarchist part-time Pacifist lay about that I am. I just loves Navy aircraft of WW2. In particular the Grumman TBF torpedo bomber.

(...yeah okay for you fanatics out there General Motors made a version too.)

This sweetheart took big loses in the Battle of Midway it's maiden fight.  It took 80%+!!! Shot out of the sky. Google it...Yikes!! 

The fuckers sent them into a Nipponese Navy buzz-saw without fighter escort!! Insane!!!! However the TBF went on to prove itself during the rest of the conflict. 

I think it's just the look of the thing, and it's bitter early history that attracts me. Oddly enough I've never had much luck building scale models of the damned thing.

It's complex as hell both as a real aircraft, and a model kit. 

Good grief.

Stay Tuned.


  1. What these photos need is a lovely sissy boy model, scantily yet elegantly clad, lounging on the wing of a plane or fondling the propeller, to show off what fine fighting machines these are, and to suggest what sort of a homeside hero's welcome awaits our brave men upon their return from victory.


  2. The site's art department will take your...interesting suggestion under advisement.
