Marine SBD-1 Dauntless

Read Time:18 Second

A couple of years ago I replaced my Airfix “Sail12” SBD-3 Dauntless with a better Hasegawa kit.

Rather than leave the old kit sitting on the obsoletes shelf I repainted and redecaled it for 2-MB-1, the commander’s aircraft for VMB-2 in August 1940. Several aircraft sported these markings, but the specific one here is BuNo 1597.
