but it’s gonna be 1/32…..Trumpeter’s F4F-3 “early”. Built this one as a Wake Island defender, before there was Silver Wing decals, by patching together available stuff. Engine is wired, gun bays detailed and I had to cast my own smooth-tread tires as Trumpeter provided incorrect treaded, rubber ones in the kit. According to my research number 8 was one of the possible last 2 survivors.
