For the Archives.


Hobby Master 1/72 Air Power Series
HA0102
USMC SBD-2 Dauntless, VMSB-241
Battle of Midway, June 4 - 7, 1942
Limited 3,000 Units

Your Second World War collection just wouldn't be complete without a Dauntless from the Battle of Midway.

This was a very early effort by Hobby Master and it holds up very well. You can see in the following photos that even the red in the centre of the white star shows through the white coat of white paint (a very impressive detail as in reality these were painted in a hurry to prevent confusion with Japanese markings).

Occasionally this model will show up on Ebay. Well worth purchasing one if you get the chance.

You can see the painted out red in the star and the rudder stripes below.
