It is hard to keep up with the various group builds. here is my SBD. This is as close to black I could get.



A B&W photo does not cut it. I will get some black primer.

I broke down and bought flat black spray for the Dauntless as per Dave's comments.

Here is a beauty by Dave. The Grumman Duck has been faithfully rendered according to USN plans. Excellent work Dave.

Prior to the Duck, Dave's ME BF110 Destroyer and his Seamew missed being posted to the forum. Both beauties.

Lou,
   I bought a can of Tamiya's clear flat lacquer. It is a much better product than Testors version (and it costs more). Thanks for posting the photos.

RCAF 430 Squadron flew the Mustang Mk 1 late into the war. Here is a participant in D Day activities in 1/72 scale. Pine construction with home made decals. I found that wetting just the backside of the decal makes all the difference in getting the decal colours to stay vibrant and not bleed. Paints are model Master and Krylon rattle can. I must admit I love these ID + models.

Lou, I guess you are using white decal paper. Did you make the RNZAF roundels for the Dauntless?

Yes I made the RNZAF and RCAF decals on white film. Only black items are on clear film. Roundels are a collage of MS Office basic shapes. I made them extra large and inserted into MS Paint to make an image. I then shrunk them to size. My decal making has come a long way.

Two more beauties from Dave. A Mitsubishi A5M Claude and a Curtis Seagull SOC. Both from the USN Recognition models from plans found in the gallery. Both models came out superbly.

I will add these to the Model of the Year set.
