After watching the 2019 "Midway" movie, I tried to build a technic version of SBD Dauntless. I wanted this project to be a light and quick one, so I decided not to build the plane from scratch, instead, I wanted to mod from some exist MOCs. Then I found this master piece plane MOC on RB: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/150206-aircraft-fighter-bomber-mkii-lego-technic/&tab=comments#comment-2791893 https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-9602/NikolayZubov/aircraft-fighter-bomber-mkii-lego-technic/#comments It's @Nikolay's wonderful fighter bomber MK II, a beautiful fictional plane packed with tons of features. This MOC has more than enough features I want to add to my SBD, so I removed some of them and adjusted the shape of the plane to make it look like a SBD of course, and here is the result: Featurewise it has(left over from original): Control surfaces controlled from cockpit: Ailerons Flaps (Unfortunately, it doesn't have any of the SBD's famous giant speed brakes) Elevators Rudder, connected directly to the tail wheel Other functions: Retractable landing gear; Wing folding mechanism, I know real SBD can't fold its wings, I keep this function to save space.... Rear machine gun Central retractable bomb pylon Sliding openable cockpit Some details: The olive green parts introduced by 42110 fits very well as the interior color here. The white belly: A closer look at the bomb: For paintjob , I chose the SBD-5's typical paintjob instead of the SBD-3 which appears in the movie. Some comparison with real SBDs: In memory of the already dissembled prototype: More pictures Thanks for watching, hope you like it. Many thanks again to the original MOC author: @Nikolay
