Well after a few weeks of no activity, Im back. In my opinion, this is a very accurate model. I am sure there are many flaws with it. Well here it is.
About this creation
The inspiration for this came when i was looking for something to do. Since i still have my Corsair built, I thought I should build another Pacific fighter. Well really bomber. If you want to be even more specific a DIVE bomber. YES, YES, i know it is SUPPOSED to be light blue but please tell me how many sets recently have a large amount of LIGHT BLUE parts in it? i have almost none. The first model of this was ok. I started with experementing with canopy designs when i remembered the canopy of a Dauntless. So I started and it turned into this. And for all you Purists out there, NO i did not harm any pieces in this...........wait..........I did cut a light grey technic/system pin. one of those small ones. but that was to secure the radio wire to the pole on the nose. but that is it. there are a few illegal connections but all of us do that. SO please enjoy.
OK. lets take the plane off the stand and show you all the rest of the plane
the rear gunner
the underside is all white, just like the real plane
the bomb and the landing gear down
the tail section, with the tail hook up
the radio wire
and the base, sorry about the blurr.
and some plants around the tree
and my custom palm tree. i do not own a lego palm tree anymore. i once had one, i dont remember what happened to it. but i like my custom one.
very accurate. you have put my unposted one to shame. the only inaccurate thing about it is the wings. on a real SBD, the wings curve slightly in the middle of the wing, which is almost impossible to do unless its on UCS scale.
