This is a 1/72 SBD Dauntless Divebomber Plastic Model Kit from Testors. This model is recommended for experienced modelers, ages 10 and up.

The SBD Dauntless was used throughout the war as the U.S. Navy's primary carrier-based divebomber. Navy pilots had deep respect for the machine because it was rugged and versatile; a Coral Sea Dauntless returned after that great battle with more than 200 holes in the airframe! In the haste to disarm after the war, virtually all SBD's were dismantled and few of these remarkable planes exist today.
