Tamiya, 1:48 scale F4F-4 “Wildcat”: My First Build of this kit…

Before Tamiya released their 1:48 scale F4F-4 “Wildcat”, there was only the old Monogram kit. The Monogram kit was little more than a toy, having folding wings and other “Features” that just made the kit a very inaccurate model of […]
