Got this kit, too. I have no doubt it will not be fussy to build. But the panel lines look heavvvy, I think I would use a lot of primer to conceal that, or maybe I take to the hairy stick?

US Navy designation
TB = Torpedo Bomber D = Douglas
The TBD Devastator was a pre-war US Navy Torpedo Bomber, slaughtered at Coral Sea and Midway with the replacement TBF Avenger already on the way.

Thanks John,

Is the Dauntless in the movie Midway or the Devastator?

Oh, I meant: T-o B-e D-one. I hadn´t thought about the Devastator....
This abbreviation can lead to misunderstandings, pretty easily ;-)
Anyway, I go on with my Mustangs, the P-40s can wait a little more

The picture you have shown is of a SB2U Vindicator not a Dauntless.

Back to the original question - the Dauntless is a different aircraft, a SB = Scout (& dive) Bomber, D = Douglas.
Both the Dauntless and the Devastator were at Midway (the real thing).
The movie had period films of the Dauntless but I do not think any real Dauntless were featured.
I don't remember if the movie had period film of Devastators; I'm quite sure they had no real ones.
Others may know different.
