1:48 scale, Eduard F6F-3, “Hellcat”
March 2, 2016 in Aviation
Decent kit of Grumman’s fighter, and a pleasure to build. I thought it had excellent exterior detail. The prop was a little disappointing, as was the cockpit. I thought they could been better, but at least Eduard captured the look of the F6F. Probably the best Hellcat kit on the market, in any scale. Here are some pictures, and thanks again for looking.
White “7”, an F6F-3 was a ‘Hellcat’ that was assigned to Fighting Sixteen, (VF-16) and was flown from USS Lexington, (CV-16), by Cdr Paul D. Buie.
Cdr. Buie would be credited with the destruction of Nine Japanese aircraft during World War Two, and flew “White 7”, during March, 1944
