"Monogram Dauntless dive bomber"
ek19333
Overall, I really liked this kit: it was inexpensive, had more detail than I expected and was a very quick build. The fitting of the fuselage to the wings was a bit off, so I had to break out my tube of putty and spend a couple of hours making the seams disappear along the wing-fuselage connecting areas. I believe this is an older model from the 60s. The decals that come with kit enable you to build two different variants: one an American carrier-based craft circa 1942 and the second is a land-based New Zealander version. I wish there had been a bit more detail involved with large cockpit/crew compartment as any detail work once done would have really stood out under either open or closed canopies.

"Fit Issues but decent detail."
ginolim02
I purchased this model somewhere else before stumbling upon this website. It seems that this model uses older tooling as apparent from the molds. Lots of filing/sanding needed to get the parts to look better. The fuselage and the wings needed some work. Some parts needed filler to fix the gaps and those little ejection holes. Not all of the parts fit properly either. One thing I like about Revell's panels is they already have the rivets and decent panel lines. This kit is easy for a beginner if they don't really care about the nuances explained above. I will give the decals some brownie points as they did not silver all that much.

 
"Still great"
paratrp34
This model was as good as I remembered from years ago. It's an easy kit to follow the instructions, and fits together really well. Minimal trimming, and no putty was necessary during the build. There are a few different options during assembly, which I always like also. The only thing I wished is that it came with some decal variety, but I made the included ones work for my chosen paint scheme.

 
"Cheap, easy, looks good"
mcgoldrickkelly
The only issue, which can b easily rectified are the wing flaps. Contrary to the directions, u can't leave them in an open position, u HAVE to glue them together and to the bottom of the fuselage. Otherwise, the fuselage and wings all come together flush, and i really cant complain. The rear gunner and his machine gun fit perfectly through the canopy, as does the pilots frontal gun! Great kit, cheap and worth it!
