Thanks, lauhof! Indeed I was thinking along those lines, but could not remember these particular profiles. Either I had the same stream of thought as you or subconsciously remembered seeing them, I couldn't say. Anyhow good ideas always DO come to life, eventually!

Thank you for the comment, Stéphane! I made some TB3D-2 and TB3D-3 variants on the what-if forum, so i don't know if this is what you had in mind:




I like this one a lot!  It just seems so much better proportioned.  8A/A-17 cockpit?

Cheers,

Logan

Here is another with the three-color scheme. Also delivered to VF-17 for testing in combat as a fighter-bomber end 1943.

Just a little jump in time - In 1944 the Douglas Company came with an TB3D-2 version.
Here is one from the USS Natoma Bay

Maybe try a Martin A-20 style turret in the rear of this one?

Thanks Logan for the advice!  :)  Is it the Douglas A-20 you suggest?

Douglas A-20, but the turret is a Martin turret, which is why I said "A-20 style", since they were used on other types, too.

Cheers,

Logan

Indeed they were, including the Avenger.  ;D

And we, till now unmatched in ill,
Must leave successors more corrupted still."
