Question, Douglas SBD-4, 5 Dauntless

Recommended Posts

I have the Hasegawa 1/48 SBD-4 and the Academy SBD-5.  both have control sticks, and rudder pedals in both front and rear cockpits.  Since both have them. I am assuming they are accurate.  This is new to me, I never knew they were set up like that.

The control stick in the rear cockpit was usually not installed in the flight position. It was stored and could be used in an emergency. I want to say it was on the left side of the gunner's position. I could be wrong though. It's been a while since I've seen the photos 😁
