Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat, Hasegawa in 1/48 scale
September 12, 2014 in Aviation
Hi, here comes my Hellcat from Hasegawa. Done a few years back, after collecting a lot of dust in my “flightline” i made a slight refurbish with it. Some clear on the canopy, a drop semi gloss varnish and a new antenna made from stretched sprue.
The Hellcat was completely build out of the box, wich means it has the infamous Hasegawa grin. But otherwise it is a great kit and a delight to build.
I hope it is not too bad, compared with upcomig Eduard “Cats”
“White 99” was the aircraft of Cdr. T Hugh Winters Jr., Commander Air Group 19, abort the
U.S.S Lexington. The unusual number aft of the canopy, the name and the kill marks makes
this Hellcat very special.
Glossy sea blue and the white markings are always attractive, i hope you like it 🙂
