    Well, since everybody else has started I'll do it as well....:oops: :D
    I'll do Stanley "Swede" Vejtasa's SBD-3 Dauntless from USS Yorktown, the machine in which he tangled with Zeros during the battle of Coral Sea, May 1942. The Dauntless is Accurate Miniatures 1/48 crate.

    The Wildcat is for my other GB..

    I'll have to wait another two weeks before I can start, sínce I'm in Sweden visiting family and friends....:lol:

    Lucky, be sure you've got the right markings and camo for the Dauntless. I found that they switched a lot during those few months from Coral Sea and Midway. Check my site, I put a link up for Enterprise but if you fool around with the site they also list Yorktown and the markings.
