SBD-3 Dauntless – Hasegawa 1/48

Hello everyone, this is another of my old builds, completed sometime around 2007. I wanted to show the plane in the dive-bombing position, so I cut off the dive brakes and drilled out all the holes with a pin-vise. I also cut off the propeller blades to make them look like they are spinning. I originally was going to put an acrylic rod through the bottom, but I found some clear plastic stands to use instead. I used Tamiya acrylics and a fine tip marker for the panel lines. Thanks for looking!

    I love the Hasegawa Dauntless and the scheme you chose is one of my favorites.

    Those dive brakes do look very realistic.
