Yellow Wings 48-007: SB2U Vindicators

Units: VB-2 and VB-3




Scott Van Aken


Yellow Wings is back with another super sheet, this time for the SB2U Vindicator. The sheet includes markings for the section leaders of VB-2 aboard the USS Lexington, and VB-3 from the USS Saratoga. As with all Yellow Wings sheets, the instructions are quite extensive and contain full information on every Vindicator built and delivered, including the serial and coding for each serial.

In addition, you get extra code numbers and letters for doing non-section leader aircraft and an additional small decal sheet with more code material and the additional serial numbers of the other squadron aircraft. Frankly, this is the most comprehensive sheet I've seen on the subject. If you are concerned about what kits to use, there is the old Meicraft kit which many still have squirreled away. In addition, Accurate Miniatures is scheduled to release their new SB2U kit sometime in the coming months, so this will be perfect for that kit. This sheet is sure to do as well as the previous TBD sheets so get it while the getting is good.

Thanks to Yellow Wings for the review samples.
