"back to the good old days"
jctoymaker
This was the first Monogram kit I ever built back in the late fifties after having done a number of Revell kits. It was the first WWII kit I built. I was pleased with all the moving parts, something new. I ended up building all the navy WWII Monogram kits of the time. it was my first exposure to a specific scale, as revel kits at the time didn't say much on that subject. The kit has worn its age well. Compared to more recently issued kits, it doesn't have a lot of detail at all; but the parts fit together well and is a great kit for a young novice builder. I find (in all kits) the action figures a bit hokey. The price of the old Monogram kits now issued to be a very good bargain for a social security guy, even with the lack of detail. A very nice kit for the money.

"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.

 
"A Dauntless SBD"

Understand this kit is molded from molds done in the 1960's Mind set was not on crazy detail even though this kit does have respectable detail. Revell does provide you with a platform to end up with a beautiful model. The current decal idea leaves a lot to be desired. I love the kit. There are others out there, but, not so affordable.

 
"Cheap, easy, looks good"

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!
