"Excellent for beginners"
Jesus Loves You - John 3:16, Isaiah 53 (ariel.vancleve@gmail.com)
The Douglas Dauntless model was very easy to build, and I strongly recommend it for beginners. Overall, it had many nice features including a spinning prop, retracting landing gear, opening dive brakes, and even a dropping bomb. Revell's Dauntless also had a decent amount of detail. Its decals did not look the best, but they worked. On the down side, however, the dive brakes were hard to open and close. Also, the landing gear retracted fairly well, but, it was sometimes difficult open them again. Still, on the whole, this aircraft is excellent for beginners and is one of the cheapest models on the market. (And it retains quality and includes good features.)

"Great for a beginner"
This was the second model I have completed and overall it was fun. The parts fit together easily and the detail is what you would expect from an older mold. I completed it in roughly 8 hours. It's a great model for those who are looking at starting with piston aircraft. I went with the New Zealand paint scheme with the USN markings

"The Perfect Aircraft Kit"
johncpo41 (www.hobbiesinabarn)
The model fills the gap within the model aircraft selections. The kit is well designed for the beginner or advanced modeler and with easy to read instructions and concise diagrams the kit will go together with out any major problems. As shown the dive brakes can be shown either out of in and the landing gear is detailed enough to have shown in the down position. The details are enough to show off some of the actual aircraft.

"Another classic Revell kit"
This isn't the most-detailed kit available, but it is fun to build and produces a nice-looking plane. I wish the rear gun was more accurate (it should be twin 30-cals, not a single), but that's ok. Plenty of options with a little improvising for canopy configuration, I drilled holes in my air-brakes to add some realism there. A great old-school kit.
