1/72 Cyber Hobby SB2C3 Helldiver
September 5, 2013 in Aviation
Just finished this. The kit looked lovely in the box, especially the interior, but was plagued by poor instructions, ill fitting parts (dive brakes, open canopy). The engine cylinders are configured wrong. 2 of the canopy pieces snapped in half while removing them from the sprue. I wanted to fold the wings but the parts are too weak and the attachment points for the undercarriage are a joke (ie. virtually non existent). I am pleased with the finished model though as It actually looks quite good built, but am very glad to get it off the bench.
