HARDY WELL DONE In 1971 this kit was the state of the Art with all those scale opperating features and the cardstock interiers. I built the first release of this kit in the fall of 1971 aboard ship I got as far as the fuselage like my build i am doing herfe. I sent it home to my wife so I can finish it up when I came home on leave FPO San Fransisco lost my SBD in the fleets mail and never found. Boats

I built this kit sometime around 2002 and painted it in these colors. I didn't know such things as this were possible so the interior was the cardstock included in the kit.

Poppy, do you spray your models with a clear coat once the decals have been applied, and do you use testors?

A modification to DD's original prop. Sorry DD.

Do you build the stabilizers per plan or do you go another route?

Thank you sir! I am going to take a stab at covering with sheet balsa, and your posts have been very helpfull.
poppy, Comment for image # 457215 Sep 10 08:56
This pic doesn't clearly show but the balsa stringers and longerons were lightly sanded at the rear of the cowl to allow the 1/32" balsa skin to be blended to plastic. I also lightly sanded the skin afer installation. The wings would have required much more sanding to the ribs hence the extra plastic added to formed pieces. The rear plastic was removed and not used.

It doesent look like you fir out these plastic pieces like you did on the belly pan and the wing slats, Am I looking at this correct?

For Stirling; I used thin plastic rod, mfg. by Evergreen and purchased at hobby shop, cut to length and sandwiched between thin strips of masking tape. I painted after putting them together. The sharp end of round toothpicks work also for the tapered bullet effect. I chose plastic 'cause it's easier to cut.
