A replica of the famous Douglas SBD-3 Dauntless dive bomber flown from the USS Enterprise (CV-6) during the Battle of Midway by Lt. Commander Richard Best of Bombing Squadron 6 (VB-6), this 1/18 scale, plastic model - which has a wingspan of more than 2-feet! - looks just like the real thing!
Premium features include engraved panel lines and simulated rivets; a fully outfitted cockpit with flight controls, radio gear, and much more, all protected by sliding canopies; a rotating and elevating 7.62mm Browning machine gun that retracts into the cockpit; an intricate 9-cylinder Wright Cyclone R-1820-60 radial engine with a rotating propeller; two wing-mounted 100-pound bombs and a third, 1,000-pound bomb in the centerline crutch; movable flight control surfaces and working dive brakes; retractable landing gear with a steerable tail wheel and a tail hook; and authentic markings. Measures 22" long with a 27" wingspan and requires only a few minutes of simple assembly. #0099558
