1/32 Trumpeter SDB-5 Dauntless

Recommended Posts

Well this is the first plane I've build since I was about 11.  Its supposed to get me back into the Wokka.  Its Pacific Fleet, and they got hammered by the elements.  Cant decide if I overdid it, but here you go

Lovely build, don't think it looks overdone on the weathering, these airframes took a pounding by the elements, they had better things to do than polish them at that time

Weathering looks brilliant and totally appropriate for the type and era. It’s done to a very high standard so not overboard at all. It’s a great model. I like that you included the crew - don’t see this very often. Well done on great work.

Nothing wrong with that, mate.  And jumping straight in with a big scale and all the added complexity involved was a very brave move.

I must say I found the sheer amount of blue surface area quite intimidating where weathering is concerned. 1/32 is mahoosive
