First Look

Attack Squadron from Poland produces some impressive resin kits, details, and conversions. This correction set is designed for the Accurate Miniatures 1/48 SBD Dauntless (all versions) kit that is also reboxed by Eduard and Italeri.

SBD Dauntless Dive Flaps

This set provide the dive brake and flap sections with sharp detail on the interior of the flaps to replace the kit's parts which have gaps between the flaps after assembly. These also provide a much easier alternative for the photo-etched alternatives that can be difficult to manipulate.

This set is a direct drop-in replacement for the kit parts and can be posed in any configuration you choose for your project.

This set is available from HobbyZone USA (look here).
