Trumpeter's SBD-1 UPDATE: 2/18/18: THE GEAR: DONE

Recommended Posts

Did you notice in the Walk Around video that the SBD was covered in raised rivets? You may want to visit Archer Fine Transfers website to help with that. :)

 

Can't wait to see you start on this one Peter.

 

Cheers,

Wolf

No aftermarket parts, remember? ;-)

Thanks and much appreciated. Just can have enough photos, especially when the build is going to be OOB/Box Stock and painting what ever details come with the kit are so necessary to highlight those very details as nothing can be added.

Thank you for all the photos and video; especially the  painting/color details. The last set; Midway SBD-1 offers the after Pearl Habor interior colors of Interior Green and the later IP. Some great stuff

Much appreciated

HI Wolf

I sure owe you a HUGE CUP OF JOE!

Yep, I knew as soon as I broke the box open that all all the raised rivets that should be there weren't and what rivets there are, are flush -  thousands of dimples. with the SBD being headed for the 2018 Noreastcon and will be entered in the Aircraft Box Stock category, the rules prohibit adding any AM at all. I decided on the Box Stock category for a few reasons: the build time wouldn't drag on for month after month and I could concentrate on the building fundamentals and painting. The two other reasons I went OOB was that I already had the ancient Trumpeter kit and that the AM I needed just can't be found any more: Eduard BIG Ed set Master's resin wheels. So might as well bite the bullet and see how the Old Gal will do on her own.
