Grumman Hellcat 1 – No 800 Squadron, Fleet Air Arm (Royal Navy) – 1/32
August 27, 2014 in Aviation
Not having seen one in real life, I hadn’t fully appreciated how big the F6F was until I built this kit and parked it alongside other WW2 fighters of the same scale.
This is from the Trumpeter 1/32 F6F-3 kit. OOB except for Eduard cockpit enhancements and ignition wiring on the R2800.
And, guys, if I ever manage to complete a model without making some stupid mistake about two yards from the finish line, or not lose a couple of small but vital parts to the carpet monster, you’ll be the first to know 😉
