BGRADE – Wings of Glory – Douglas SBD-5 Dauntless (Kirkendahl)

$16.65

This B-GRADE condition item is unbroken, unplayed, cards sealed. Cosmetic damage may exist on the box. In most cases the item is sealed, however in some cases I can tell the mini has been removed from its packaging by its original owner to admire it, and carefully returned. Priced at my cost plus small markup to cover time and fee’s. Typically this stock exists from collections I’ve bought that were not completely as described, from local players of the game who I’m assisting, from stock that has been left on a board game store shelf for years, or new items that have box damage from rough shipping.

Description

The Douglas SBD Dauntless was the US Navy’s main carrier-borne scout plane and dive-bomber, and was a good match in combat against the faster, but lightly armored Japanese fighters. Able to carry a substantial bomb load, the Dauntless proved to be very effective in sinking Japanese ships, and it earned glory during the famous Battle of Midway. The SBD-5 was the definitive model of the series, with an increased ammunition capacity and a more powerful engine than its predecessors had. It was also produced in a land-based variant, the A-24 Banshee.
