The Vought SB2U Vindicator was a dive bomber in service from 1937 to 1943. It served on board the US Navy aircraft carriers USS Lexington, USS Saratoga, USS Ranger and USS Wasp and with several US Marine squadrons. US Marine corps Vindicators saw action in the Battle of Midway, flying from Midway island but their attacks were unsuccessful. It was replaced by the superior Douglas Dauntless, starting from 1940.

In Royal Navy service the Vindicator was known as the Chespeake, It was planned to operate them from Escort Carriers in the anti-sub role but it was found they were too underpowered to take off with any meaningful amounts of ordnance. They were replaced by Swordfish and relegated to training duties.

Special Hobby is a Czech based manufacturer and this is their 1/72 Vought Vindicator kit.  This is a detailed multimedia kit, consisting of mostly injection moulded plastic parts but with additional resin parts.

Markings are provided for 4 different US Marine SB2U-3's, including one from Midway Island during the Battle of Midway.
