"I detailed a lot of the cockpit and the rear gunner compartment, but I will let the pictures speak for themselves. I modeled this airplane after the Curtiss SB2C-4 Helldiver." - Bill Kallstrom
"Here is my Helldiver model. Made for display. I enjoy building your kits." - Ronald Lind
"Have been playing with my MagnaBoard. With the purchase of some inexpensive frame brackets I now have a way to accurately jig up box structures. I have also used them to jig up my Easy Built Helldiver to glue the wings on. Hoping to fly WW 2 combat for the first time this year. Keep those great models coming!" - Bob Bard
