I found this F7F-3N AMT kit to be a smooth build with no noticeable problems other than those that were self-inflicted. Despite filling the nose with lead, I found the model to be a dedicated tail-sitter. AMT must have been […]

Finished this one last year. It took me a year to build to the day I called it finished. Posted on another site, but one of my all time favorites. And fun to build. It is a 1/48 scale AMT/ERTL […]

by Dan DeSilva on November 26, 2012 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

Hi again- sorry for the multiple posts tonight- I only have now to do these. I took the AMT F7F, converted it using the HiTech resin parts, Obscureco props (the kit ones are, well.. backwards), and Squadron canopies, and finally […]
