Oxford Diecast Douglas Dauntless VMSB-233 Sister Guadalcanal 1943

Product Code: AC110

$19.07

The Douglas Dauntless was a US Navy carrier-borne scout plane/dive-bomber manufactured by the Douglas Aircraft Company at their El Segundo plant. First built in 1940 just over 5,900 SBD Dauntless were produced until the end of manufacture in July 1944.  The Dauntless was the US Navy’s key dive-bomber and although slow and somewhat out of date when it began its combat career, it was rugged and dependable, which was reflected in its performance against Japanese ships, particularly in the Pacific, where it succeeded in sinking more Japanese shipping than any other Allied aircraft in WWII.

One of its Pacific deployments was in Guadalcanal, the principal island of the Solomon Islands in the south west Pacific. SBDs – Scout Bomber Douglas - or as their pilots named them Slow But Deadly,  played a major role in the Guadalcanal Campaign, operating off both American carriers and from Henderson Field, a military airbase on the island, from where they proved lethal to enemy shipping.

Our 1:72 scale Oxford replica evokes the memory of the Douglas Dauntless in this role.  Painted in dark grey with a pale grey underbelly, the aircraft features the US Star and its 16 number on the sides of the fuselage. Additional decoration comprises the yellow bird and ‘Sister’ nose art, reputedly one of the earliest pieces of art to feature on a US Marine aircraft. Most of the underside detail is painted black, including the arrestor hook deployed in takeoff and landing on the carriers. The bomb, housed dead centre behind the wheels, is painted dark green with its bomb sling arms also depicted in black.

    I recommend this product

    DOUGLAS Dauntlas SBD3 ( VMSB 233 / “Sister”, Guadalcanal 1943 )

    This SBD3 model is finely crafted with distinct panel lines, perforated dive brakes & accurately depicted control surfaces. I feel that two additions would make this model even more representative of the real a/c: (1) the addition of twin .50cal. mgs. & a gunner’s seat in the aft cockpit, (2) paint the two small bombs, one under ea. wing, “Olive Drab” as is the fuselage bomb. Only ERROR on my model : National insignia (STAR), rt. fuselage - “upside down” .
