Curtiss SB2C Helldiver - The Worst and Final Navy Dive Bomber

When the United States Navy ordered the first prototype of the Curtiss SB2C Helldiver, the plans for the new dive bomber represented a giant leap in technology.

Developed by Curtiss-Wright during World War II, the third member of a dive-bomber family eventually had so many problems during development that it was even investigated by the Truman Committee and nearly ruined Curtiss as a company.

The SB2C quickly earned a questionable reputation for being a dangerous aircraft and became the last dive bomber in the Navy's inventory, but also its most heavily produced.


Join Dark Skies as we explore the world of aviation with cinematic short documentaries featuring the biggest and fastest airplanes ever built, top-secret military projects, and classified missions with hidden untold true stories. Including US, German, and Soviet warplanes, along with aircraft developments that took place during World War I, World War 2, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Cold War, the Gulf War, and special operations mission in between.

As images and footage of actual events are not always available, Dark Skies sometimes utilizes similar historical images and footage for dramatic effect and soundtracks for emotional impact. We do our best to keep it as visually accurate as possible.

lyianx : "Eh, ill keep my dauntless, thanks." - Dive bomber pilots.. probably.
Steve B : My father was a Hellcat pilot. He said the pilots hated the Helldiver. It was unstable and at the end of a long mission the pilots were so tired they had to be helped out of the cockpit.
SBD= Slow But Deadly.
WalkaCrookedLine : The SB2C helldiver was originally intended to have double the bombload and at least 50% greater range than the SBD dauntless. If it had been used from land bases that may actually have worked. But in carrier operations it was unsafe with a full load, carrier decks weren't long enough for it to reach an adequate airspeed when taking off. So the bombload and fuel load were cut back to improve acceleration, and in carrier operations the plane wound up not significantly exceeding the dauntless's performance. It was bigger than the dauntless and so fewer could be carried in a carrier's limited space. It was more taxing to fly, and generally achieved fewer hits per sortie, which pilots blamed on unstable handling in the attack dive. It should have been cancelled, not built in large numbers. Some carrier captains flat refused to have them on board, carrying an extra hellcat squadron instead, trained and equipped for dive bombing. Ultimately the helldivers were replaced with AD skyraiders, which were highly successful in Korea and Vietnam, but developed too late for WW2.
James Bugbee : The Beast fascinated me as a kid because of the near-squirrely rear canopy/gun arrangement; it looked cool and inefficient both. SBD, on the other hand, was a bird any kid could understand.
Powell Mountain Mike : The name "Hell Divers" goes way back in the U. S. Navy. It was Navy slang for dive bombers from early on. It featured as the title of the 1932 movie starring Wallace Beery and Clark Gable about U. S. Navy dive bombers. I heard the nickname given the SB2C in WW2 (Son of a Bitch, 2nd Class) from veterans of that conflict long before I watched this video. Good video.

Building the Revell Pro Modeler 1/48 Scale SB2C-4 Helldiver Dive Bomber

In this 16th amateur model build of the series, we’ll be constructing, painting, weathering, and adding photo etch to the Revell Pro Modeler 1/48 scale World War II era SB2C-4 Helldiver —kit #85-5983.

ERROR(s) for this video: The right landing gear is crooked at the end. The model structure is weak, but I should have straightened it out for the end shots.
Max_Afterburner : (For those who viewed later): The Answer for Project #17 was -- The U.S.S. Indianapolis heavy cruiser in 1/350 scale.
Steve Freeland : Great video! Really enjoyed the opening images and the notes that were provided during the build. Great build .... You are a true artist!
Lawrence Reid : What a GREAT job you did on this.  I LOVE build videos of these classic, older kits especially ones from the 1/48th Pro Modeler series.  In your capable hands, you prove how good they can look compared to many of the newer kits five times as expensive.  In addition, your videos are so well "produced."  All the facts and figures you supply on the subject aircraft;  your clear, concise construction sequence and techniques;  identifying products you used as well as the music you've included.  Keep up the good work.  I am very glad to be one of your loyal subscribers.  THANK YOU!
Fernando Romero : Can we have a tour of all your model builds? I think it would be awesome to see all the amazing models you have made throughout the years and how far your skills have come. I started watching your videos about 2 months ago and it reminded me of when my dad use to built models when I was a kid and how I would play with them and break them (sorry dad). I then showed my dad your videos and he was hooked on watching some videos with me. We then went and bought a model kit which was the f-22 raptor. We began building it having fun but I had to go back home with my mom and I had to finish on my own. It took awhile but I finished it and I’m proud of it even though it looks like it should be burned in fire. I’m now working on the f-14 tomcat model kit and I can’t wait to finish it. I don’t know where I was going with this but I want to thank you for uploading these videos I enjoy every minute of them and I started building some of my own models. I hope you continue and have fun building them.
Firstname Lastname : Max,

As always, a superb build, particularly the weathering and the techniques used. Also, your video style (commentary, historical information, music, etc) is by far my favorite. I enjoy watching your videos as much as I enjoy doing my own builds!

Thanks for sharing - looking forward to the next one.

Part 1 - SB2C-4 Helldiver - 1/72 - plastic scale model step by step build

Welcome to the Curtiss SB2C-4 Helldiver video build. The kit is in 1/72nd scale and is manufactured by Cyber Hobby (Dragon). It is a very nice and well detailed kit with just a few low points. The first episode of this step by step build will take us to the point where we have painted, weathered and assembled cockpit and gunner station and closed fuselage.

Small Soldier adventures in miniature : Very good I think it looks really great so far! I like the toothpick tip for holding canopies while being masked and painted.
The Model Guy : Fantastic :) I've been back into the hobby now for a year after a nearly 20 year haitus. It's videos like these that have helped so much.
Samuele Guidelli : I’ve done the same model a years ago, is a awesome kit
mario polito : Wonderful job my friend!
Only a question: before apply washes, do you apply some coat to the base color?
Quantum Plastic : Muito bom! Obrigado pela partilha. ;)
