1/48 AMT Tigercat F7F-3N
November 26, 2012 in Aviation
Hi again- sorry for the multiple posts tonight- I only have now to do these.
I took the AMT F7F, converted it using the HiTech resin parts, Obscureco props (the kit ones are, well.. backwards), and Squadron canopies, and finally metal Cutting Edge landing gear. I copied the kit wheels, making resin replacements- the kit ones in vinyl are notorious for melting plastic. I think they look infinitely better than the other replacement wheels out there. My most happy time of this build was spraying the exhaust stains after doing the GSB finish. Of course I look like a copycat posting mine after the other F7F-3N on here!
