Joe N. who many of you know from his YouTube channel mad genius Productions has finished up his build for the 2021 HLI Wings Of WW II GB. Joe built an SBD-3 Dauntless and here is what he had to say about his build.
I built the 1/48 Hasegawa SBD-3 Dauntless done in an early version color scheme of Tamiya light grey and the red airbrakes. I also used aftermarket .30 cal barrels, ammo feed, and aluminum tubes for the .50 front guns. Everything else was box stock.
Here you can find a video of Joe’s finished build.
and the final build pictures of his Dauntless.
