FM-2 of VC-93 aboard USS Petrof, 1945
June 30, 2013 in Aviation
This represents an FM-2 aboard USS Petrof during 1945. I have no information as to the pilot or if in fact it was ever assigned to an individual pilot. FM-2’s came late in the war and flew off Jeep carriers. I built it OOB from the Hobby Boss kit. When I do another one, and I will, I will use the Squadron aftermarket canopy for the sliding portion. Over all I think the kit is excellent. I did this scheme because I am a s****r for four leaf clovers.
