"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.)

"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!

 
"AWESOME!!!"
troy.seaman
so i spent ALOT of time on this model as i wanted to make it better. i used a small drill bit and battery operated drill to drill out the individual holes for the air brakes. i couldnt believe how much better it looked once it was in paint and mounted. i started with just doing one side to see the difference and what a difference it makes. WAY more realistic but took a ton of time to drill the holes out then sand the edges down but, again, it was well worth it. the aircraft itself went together well with no real gaps or filler needed. the cocpit is quite bare but dressed it up with some paint and such. could have been a bit better but it looks great for being such a cheap kit.

 
"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.
