an SBD-3 from VS-6 USS Enterprise June 4th 1942 crewed by ENS Frank O’Flaherty
and AMM1 Bruno Gaido. Both Gaido and O’Flaherty were captured by the IJN after
ditching their aircraft. After both men were interrogated, they had weights
attached to them and thrown overboard to drown.
This the Trumpeter Midway “Clear Edition”. As many have stated over the years, this is a pretty good kit! I wouldn’t mind building another one.
The only AM used was
Yahu IP, my wife made the squadron decal ID numbers for me. I used AK Paints
exclusively on this build.
