Glehn's Dauntless

The second Group Build where the theme is a significant year in history and we again hark back 80 summers. Whereas the events of 1940 largely centred around conflict in Europe, two years on and the battlefront has expanded dramatically following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As of January 1942, we are also six months into the Great Patriotic War on the Eastern Front. Whilst aircraft will no doubt abound, anything relevant to 1942 is fair game. And it doesnโ€™t have to be military in nature either!
Runs from 4 January to 31 December 2022.

Ah that was it. I knew that Cafe Reo had two different things. Am I misremembering the different cowling on the -1?

This week I received the decals:

And I applied the main colors. Tamiya XF-19 on the underside and XF-18 on the upper side, both lightened with a bit of white in the mix.

I plan to do some weathering now. I also will start painting the base. It seems that during this period the wooden decks of American carriers were painted Blue deck stain. Not sure what it actually looked like. Need to do some more research.

I worked a bit on the painting, with a lighted color from the top camouflage. I plan to apply the decals later today.

I also started painting the base. I first applied a couple of different brown shades. Then I plan to cover with a light blueish grey color, to simulate the blue stain.

Leo, it is from Sweet (see the first post in this thread for a picture of the box).
It is a really nice base with very delicate details of the wood planks.
