Special hobby has released images of the contents of the upcoming 1/72 release Final Helldiver Version
“Today we have begun packaging the SB2C-5 Helldiver "The Final Version" (kit cat.no. SH72350) so that the distribution of the model may begin shortly. The Helldiver kits will also accompany the other models already prepared for the 2017 Modellbrno event (taking place 16-17 June 2017).
The Academy´s highly attractive SB2C-4 kit which serves as a basis for our Dash 5 reboxing has benefited from addition of new injected parts portraying the different bomb bay, propeller and the clear canopy. The kit also comprises 3D-designed resin underwing armament including napalm tanks, AN/APS-4 radar and undercarriage wheels with nice tyre tread and separate hub covers.
The decal sheet offers the following options – a late war US Navy machine, a Dien Bien Phu machine of the French Aéronavale, a GreekHelldiver and also one Italian machine in dark blue overall with yellow trimmings.

I can't quite tell- are those new pilot's consoles among the resin parts? The -5 had a much cleaner interior layout. Thanks!

I think there is one new instrument panel amongst the resin [?] parts Chuck. Not sure about the consoles though.
