Grumman F6F-3 Hellcat
August 24, 2014 in Aviation
This 1/48 scale Hellcat carries the distinctive markings from VF-27. Definitely the most ferocious looking Hellcat squadron in the US Navy! This Hellcat probably went down with the USS Princeton when she was mortally wounded by a bomb dropped by a Jap ‘Judy’ on 24 October 1944.
The kit is from Hasegawa and was built OOB except for the scratcbuilt aerial wires. Modelmaster enamels and Doc O’ Brien’s weathering powders were used to add color to a true American legend of the war in the Pacific!
