If that Bulldog doesn't come with Bofors Bantam ATGW boxes there'll be an opening there for some aftermarket resin.

Excellent news! Not sure if I'll ever get one - neat aircraft though - but that's very good news.

Anyone else imagining one in USN Dauntless clothes?

By that I assume you mean SBD-1 colours of aluminum lacquer fuselage and yellow wings,
as the overall grey, blue over grey, tri-tone cammo, Atlantic grey over white  and overall
GSB are boring.

That almost cries out to be converted to a floatplane.  I could just see a floatplane version sitting next to a Norwegian N-3PB.

Sorry guys, not plausible. Using Dizzyfugu photos doesn't make it any more real-er.  ;D

Actually that looks really good. I thought Evan was onto something before, now I know it.

Those pics have gotten me thinking, how about an SB2C Helldiver float plane with the same configuration?
