"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.

"Dauntless by Revel"
I purchased this model since it was cheap. I haven’t modeled in over 30 years and had som extra time on my hands. I bought an airbrush and all the supplies from Hobbylinc. The model was an older model by Revel...1960’s. It came out pretty good. There was some fit problems mostly with the fuselage to the wings. I had to use a bunch of filler and when you sand it out you sand out the panel lines. To the untrained eye you do not notice...but is modelers notice. There was also some extra flash here and there but no big deal. This is a great looking model with the paint schemes provided.

I had no problems building this kit at all.The fit was execellent.I took my dremel tool and a small drill bit and drilled out all of the holes in the flaps and dive brakes.I added a little extera details to the cockpit using left over photo-etch parts from other kits. I was a little disappointed with the decal sheet.(content only not quality),I left out the old toy like bomb release and filled these holes with putty,and installed a different bomb.This kit with a little work produces a very good looking model.I of course especially like the price.You can see my completed model in the users gallery. I would recommend this kit.If you would like other decals or a different color scheme you will have to buy a aftermarket sheet,but you can still build this kit and add an aftermarket decal sheet for less than you will pay for most other kits of this aircraft.Finish on mine is Testors Model Master Paints,and weathering was done with pastels.

From start to finish the build went pretty well. The aft gunner stow and movement was some what of a problem but nothing really to gripe about. What I really had a problem with was the decals. I used a solveset solution that pretty much works with all decals. For some reason it started to set the decals normally but instead of settling along the lay area it just stayed curled up. I have had this problem with Revell decals for some time. This was an average build for a cheap price.
