Otaki 1/48 F6F-5 (N) of VF91 (N)

December 29, 2013 in Aviation

This is a model of an aircraft of VF-91 (N) flown off Bon Homme Richard during the end of 1945. The is an OOB, with the exception of the radar dome on the right wing, Otaki kit. I built this quite a number of years ago and it is showing signs of age.
