Done: Accurate Miniatures 1/48 SBD-5 Dauntless

Italeri’s rebox of the Accurate Miniatures kit. Kind of a mixed bag of emotions for me… On one hand, detail is outstanding, especially in the cockpit area. On the other hand fit in some areas was less than perfect. e.g. the wing root – fuselage join was a huge party for filler, superglue and their friends from sanding stick city…
Anyway, in the end I was more than happy with what is basically an OOB build. Painted with Lifecolor and Tamiya acrylics, antenna with fishing line, brass tubing and a ridiculously small drill bit.
