Curtiss SBC-3 Helldiver

Pictured above is a Curtiss Helldiver which was built back sometime in the late 80's. Wingspan was about 86" with a Sac's 4.8 spinning a 3-bladed Byron prop. It had homemade retracts which worked well however were quite fragile. The plane actually flew better than the real one. However, for some reason which now doesn't make any sense I sold it and the Ryan around 1990.
