The # 3 aircraft is a SB2U-3 aircraft of VMSB 241 that took part in the Battle of Midway. The Marine Vindicators didn't have folding wings so the outer lower sections are painted Light Gray.

The white stripes on the rear of the fuselage are pharmaceutical tape used to hold the decaying fabric together.

The models are finished with Model Master Paints with kit and home made decals.
