"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.

"SDB Dauntless - Pacific Hero"
JRB (Burleson, Texas)
This model was a blast to build. Considering it is from an original cast date from the 60s, it is still being produced with a lot of detail. It surprised me for an Aurora model since I feel most of their newer kits aren't as good as the old ones were. Everything fit well. I especially like the way the gear fold and are positive in both out and folded. The plane actually has a bomb that drops and the prop free wheels nicely. The detail of the air brakes and rear gunner are great. Like I said, I had a blast building this little plane. It should have been a few days but I spent 3 weeks playing with it in process. Thank the Lord for the original SDBs and what they did to save our guys in the Pacific. The Stukas of the Western theater had nothing on these brutes. I highly recommend this model.

 
"An easy to build kit if you're not a stickler for accuracy"
jimmbbo
The Monogram SBD was one of Monogram's early efforts of the late '60s, when operating features were the rage, details and accuracy were not as important as they are today, and plastic injection molding technology was in its infancy. These factors mean that this long in the tooth Dauntless is a great trip back in time, but not up to the standards of today. It assembles easily, and would make a good starter or second kit, and it looks like an SBD, and with a lot of effort, can be made into a nice model. If the builder wants a quick, easy SBD build but isn't too picky about details, this fits the bill... for anyone looking for an accurate scale model, look elsewhere.

 
"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.
