Dumas Curtiss SBC-3 Helldiver. The finished weight is 107.8g. This is a little heavy for a 30" model, but there is a lot of wing area.

I build the SBC-3 with the gear up because this is going to be an outdoor flyer and also because it is pretty complicated to make a good representation of gear down. The wheel is a balsa disc sanded into a donut shape.

The crew is now seated. I air brushed the model with acrylic paint thinned with ethylene glycol (wiper fluid).

All of the wings are removable. There is a paper tube in every wing component through which a balsa spar goes. This is done mostly for storage reasons, but will also limit damage in a bad crash.

The crew, Ensigns Thomson and Thompson are carved from foam and covered with tissue. They turned out a little more portly than I intended.
