Yellow Wings 48-012: SBD-2 Dauntless

Units: VB-2 & VS-2




Scott Van Aken

Coming quickly on the heels of their fine SBD-1 sheet is this one for the newly released SBD-2 Dauntless by Accurate Miniatures. This provides ALL the aircraft from both VS-2 and VB-2 aboard the USS Lexington during early 1941 when these planes were first assigned.

As with the other similar sheets from Yellow Wings, you are given all the code combinations for the various section leaders with enough other code letters and serials to do any of the aircraft assigned to these two units. On the back of each markings sheet is a listing of serial along with the colors of any bands or chevrons that were carried. In addition, you are provided with a 'Disposition and Deliveries' chart for every SBD-2 that was built. Also, there is a suggested model paints chart that provides exact color matches.

Insignia and chevrons are available on other Yellow Wings sheets.

Thanks to Yellow Wings for the review samples.
