White Ensign Models continues to turn out some very interesting detail sets in their 1/350 scale range. In this increment, they are detailing up the Trumpeter aircraft set that contains ten Douglas SBD Dauntlesses. These aircraft sets from Trumpeter are designed to expand the aircraft composition for their own 1/350 WW2 aircraft carriers that include the Lexington, Hornet and Essex.
This detail set provides each of the ten Trumpeter Dauntlesses with:
- Pitot tube
- Bomb sight
- Antenna mast
- Outboard dive flaps
- Outboard pylons
- Inboard dive flap
- Main gear doors
These photo-etched parts will provide an additional level of detail and fidelity to your aircraft carrier's airwing. But if this still isn't enough detail for you, check out their photo-etched cockpit interior set for the Dauntless!
Just when you thought you couldn't find any greater detail in 1/350 scale, White Ensign Models has come alongside with their latest creations.
My sincere thanks to White Ensign Models for this review sample!
