    This is an older model of mine from before I thought of showing my work to others. One day I shall go back and do some light weathering. Not to much as the actual plane did not last long in action. 100_0883_640x480.JPG 100_0882_640x480.JPG 100_0881_640x480.JPG 100_0884_640x480.JPG

    Sweet! As for weathering, I'd keep it down to a light wash for the panel-lines, I'd say even a brand new a/c has some shadows in the recessed area's. Just a tad of added realism/life without turing it into a worn out crate.

    The Dauntless is the only major US Naval plane I haven't built yet. How was this kit? I've built their Avenger before, and while a bit tricky was an excellent kit. Great work!

    Thank you all! The AM Dauntless is not quite as tricky as the Avenger ( I've built that one too ) but just like that kit it does pay to follow the instructions to the letter. Sacrilege, I know, but true in this case.

    Nice work on what I think would be an excellent kit. (I've built their Avenger too, which is very nice.)
