The Douglas SBD Dauntless was a World War II American naval scout plane and dive bomber that was manufactured by Douglas Aircraft Company. The aircraft played a pivotal role in the Pacific theater, renowned for its accuracy in dive-bombing and its ruggedness in battle. The SBD ("Scout Bomber Douglas") Dauntless was crucial in turning the tide of the war at the Battle of Midway, where it was responsible for sinking several Japanese aircraft carriers.

Key variants of the Dauntless included the SBD-3, which saw extensive use in the Battle of Midway, and the SBD-5, the most produced version with enhanced armament and range. The SBD Dauntless' significant contributions to critical naval battles, along with its resilience and effectiveness, make it a subject of great interest for military aviation historians and model collectors, particularly those interested in the history of naval aviation and WWII-era aircraft.
