Curtiss SB2C-4 Helldiver from NAS Kanehoe Bay ay in the Air Sea rescue role

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

this is my latest build, a SB2C-4 Helldiver flying out of NAS Kanehoe Bay approx 1945/46 in the search and rescue role.

It's the Revell/Monogram 1:48 kit with Ultracast seats and the Wolfpack wingfold set. A word of caution to the wingfold se: the flaps are molded closed which is only true for a SB2C-5, the dash 4 had the flaps always in the open position. I added quite some scratchbuilding including building the engine cowls closed, demilitarising (no ammo boxes, no guns), using the Yagi from the Accurate Miniatures TBM kit (more detailed thna the kit ones), changing the rear canopy rails, display the flaps open, adding wing struts, etc. Painting was done with Vallejo colours and all markings are airbrushed.

Enjoy the pictures!

Nice to see it in an unusual colour scheme.

Very nicely done, and your paintwork with that scheme is fantastic!  It's nice to see one modeled with the wings folded to show off the innards of the folding mechanism.

 

And I thought all Helldivers were unceremoniously dumped at the end of the war!

 

Cheers,
