Model Description

Hobbymaster  1/32nd scale HA0211 Douglas SBD-2 “Dauntless” flown by CDR Howard Young, Commander of the Enterprise Air Group, Pearl Harbor. Buy online now at Flying Tigers.

 

Designed as a light bomber and reconnaissance aircraft, various versions of the Dauntless served during WWII with the US Marine Corps, Army and Navy. The Douglas Dauntless was the workhorse of the US Navy in the Pacific. The Dauntless dive-bomber was the only plane to fight in every major Pacific engagement and because of the battles and the courage of the men that flew them, this plane became one of the most successful designs of WWII with 5,936 having been built in all versions.

On December 7, 1941 Douglas SBD-2 Dauntless Bu.No. 2162 piloted by CDR Howard Young who was the Commander of the Enterprise Air Group led 18 SBD’s from the USS Enterprise to Ford Island and unfortunate timing found their arrival in the middle of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Not only were they being shot at by Japanese planes but friendly fire was a large threat. Unfortunately five SBD’s were lost with the others landing safely. CDR Howard Young led other attacks including Wake Island but was killed shortly after.
