Don't know if this will help much PanzerWulf, I was needing a couple WWII torpedoes and couldn't find anything but little modern ones in the scrap boxes so I ended up reshaping some old Airfix Hunter drop tanks. Not great but they'll do for my kit bash.

American ones were fat and short (and, up until 1943, almost totally useless!). Italian and British ones were long and skinny, with the Italian types having a complex series of fins. German and Japanese ones are the most "aesthetic" in my opinion, with the nod going to the Japanese type as being MUCH more efficient.
My mind is like a compost heap: both "fertile" and "rotten"!


I have a couple off an old kit , think they are german or Italian.

If you want them drop me a pm

Everything looks better with the addition of British Roundels!

Alternatively, I have the slightly later than WW2 torpedo from the Tumpeter Wyvern if you are interested.
Pm me if you are interested.

Sorry, I sent 3 torps to Captain Canada last year and I think he used them all.

Know I have one in my Swordfish kit but will be using it (if I can find a decent pic of the wooden tail used on the Taranto raid).

Most strange, I thought I left a post on here showing these:
If I'm not building models, I'm out riding my dirtbike


The Revell (ex-Matchbox) Swordfish comes with a torp, if that's any use. Nice little kit, and cheap. :)

Actually, looking at the kit torp (I'm using mine, sorry!), it would be rather easy to scratch one from a bit of tubing (pen barrel maybe?), and the tail from a bomb.
Some of my models can be found on my Flickr album >>>HERE<<<


what I'm really looking for is a Japanese type but as I said I'll make do with what I can find.If I could find a 1/72 "Kate" that would be perfect (Esp as thats the only Japanese torpedo bomber I actually remember) Wasn't there a 1/72 Serian out there with a torpedo???

the reason I was asking is because I have a mold for aircraft torpedoes of a few different sorts, and I do have some resin casting to do soon (scratching up a X-7) looks they could be easily modified to fit the japanese bill.
