Accurate Miniatures 1/48 SBD 5 Radar Question
Posted by kielers on Sunday, July 16, 2017 6:45 AM

Hello All,

I've not been on here for quite some time, but have been busy building a 1/48 SBD 5 Dauntless.  My question is what do the cockpit component(s) of the Yagi Radar look like - the monitor, receiver or whatever this component is?

I can't find any images of it online nor in the resources I have at home. 

This is an incredibly detailed build on my part.  I've scratchbuilt many parts of the cockpit and using many after market parts as well. I will post photos soon.

Thanks for your help.

Steven

I can't speak for him, but he may respond to your question there or in a private message.
