You've inspired me to dust off this old Accurate Miniatures SBD kit! I'm planning on borrowing some photos of 8th Attack Squadron A-24s from my co-worker and building one of the airplanes they flew early in the Pacific war.

Just for reference, here is a 1/72 Hasegawa SBD-3 with Eduard dive flaps. This airplane was flown by Lt. (jg) William E. Hall during the Battle of the Coral Sea where he was credited with shooting down three enemy aircraft. Lt. Hall was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions during the 8 May 1942 battle and the airplane was dumped overboard after landing aboard the Lexington because of battle damage.

I have obtained some photos of the A-24 I'm planning to build from my friend whose dad served in the 3rd Group. Perhaps I'll make time to work on it during the Christmas vacation period. I'm really excited to finally have an excuse to build an Accurate Miniatures kit! I'll start a thread on the Modeling forum when things get underway.

That sounds like a great idea--we were going to do a group build on WIX a few years ago but it never got going.
