THE SBD DAUNTLESS from Phoenix Model brings the memories of dive
bombers and scout planes alive again. The SBD, also known as “Slow But
Deadly,” was responsible for the fatal blows delivered to the Japanese
carriers at the Battle of Midway. It’s fitting that I write this review on the
73rd anniversary of the Battle of Midway, quite arguably the turning point
of the naval war in the Pacific.
