    Does anyone know if this plane had chevrons on the top wing ? It seems odd it wouldn't but the fuselage is certaainly non-standard.

    Here is another one just like your kit and his top wing is the same as what you have.

    SBC-4 Helldiver

    I think you will need someone who has way more knowledge of the pre-war Navy than I do.

    They did, here is a pic of SBC-4 from the USS Enterprise. Not the best picture but you can make it out in ther center of the wing.

    I agree with E on that one. Here's the color scheme according to starfighter decals.

    SBC-4 1940 USS Enterprise
