Work in progress : SBD Dauntless

I’ve been working on a new template : the SBD Dauntless. I’m starting with the SBD-3 and -4 variants of this remarkable aircraft, which bore the brunt of combat against the Japanese in the early years, before it was eventually replaced by the SB2C. Despite being a dive-bomber, it was remarkably nimble once it had dropped its bomb load and proved on several occasions that it could even challenge the A6M Zero in the hands of a competent pilot. The best example of this is certainly “Swede” Vejtasa, who claimed four aerial victories in the SBD.

The wings and first profiles will be coming soon ! 😉
