I have always loved the SBD, and she has been calling from the stash… Actually there has been a duet from both of the 1:32 scale dauntless kits I have, the -3 and the -5.
So far, the build has progressed rather quickly. I am finding the fit to be very well, and the details in the cockpit, equally fine. Test fitting of major components show some work will be needed on the wing root, but there also, it will be minimal. Everything else seems to line up nicely, and I am hoping to get the fuselage buttoned up, wings and tail attached, and seams cleaned, rather quickly.
Anyhow, here are the pictures, so far. I’m really enjoying this one!!
