It’s another 1:48 scale Otaki F6F-3, “Hellcat”

Hey folks,

This is one of my very early efforts at building a model seriously.
Otaki does make a really nice Hellcat, even for it’s age. With all the posts of some of these older models, it kind of makes me want to do a little refurbishing to schmaltz her up a tad….
I’m wondering if the True Details kit will fit in this one?

  1. 1) Schmaltz (informal) NOUN exaggerated sentimentalism, as in music or soap operas
    2)Schmaltz fat or grease especially of a chicken

    I would not suggest schmaltzing it up. Maybe spruce it up? Looks OK the way it is. Leave it alone.

  2. Another Otaki/Arri club member! Nicely done too.

    I used the True Details resin cockpit for my build (a couple of pages back), as I remember it fit without much difficulty.
