1/48 Tamiya F4F Wildcat…Another Midway Vet…..

March 22, 2013 in Aviation

Since I saw some other Wildcat posts, I thought I’d add to the mix…This is the Tamiya F4F Wildcat. It depicts F17 from VF-8 USS Hornet June 4, 1942 Battle of Midway, Piloted by Ens. Steven W. Groves. Ens Groves was part of the Hornets Air Cap when Bombers from the INJ Carrier Hiryu tried to bomb the USS Yorktown. Ens Groves downed one bomber before being shot down himself and killed.

This one is built straight from the box with exception of Aeromaster decals. As usual the Tamiya kits are fantastic and go together with very little problems…
