  1. Well this is a welcome surprise. It should be an excellent kit if Flyhawk’s other releases are anything to go by. Finally a modern tooling of the “Slow, but deadly.”
  2. Hi, A "cusine" of Northrop Delta, alla Gammas including A17 Nomad, BT1 and N3PB - the Douglas SBD-3 Dauntless. The family relationship beteween all those construction I tried to explain in second post on N3PB. Thanks KRK4m for showing me this relationship many years ago. I've made this model also many years ago, before Hasegawa issued their nice kit. I used old Airfix kit, drilling more than 350 openings in airbrakes...And few other improvments added. Markings are from USS Ranger, Nov. 1942, during operation "Torch" (landing in West Africa). Comments welcome Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
  3. Hasegawa's 1/48 SBD-3 Dauntless. Slow But Deadly. Flown by Lt. Stanley "Swede" Vejtasa on 8th of May 1942, during the Battle of the Coral Sea (thanks Stephen). Vejtasa managed to shoot down two Zero's with his divebomber and ram a third. Quite an achievement since the SBD was severely underpowered compared to a thorough bred fighter as the Zero. Only Naval airman to be rewarded with a Navy Cross for both dogfight and dive bombing, three in total. After this Battle he was rightfully transferred to a fighter squadron where he became ace-in-a-day as well, ending the war with 11 victories. Ultimately commanding the USS Constellation. Vejtasa passed away on 23 January 2013. Eduard sets for the flaps and the interior. Canopies from Falcon. Modified Quickboost engine. Paints from Mr. Color and Gunze with Alclad2 Flat coat. Decals scratched from various older sets and the Hasegawa decals and US Insignia from Techmod. The tail is not a decal. Scratched the cowl flaps. Pollock and Vejtasa
