1/48 Hasegawa F6F-5P conversion
I wanted to do a Hellcat in these markings ever since I saw the photo in a Hellcat reference, the Model Graphics book on the Hellcat. When I found out that Superscale put decals out for one of these VF-84 aircraft, I went ahead with it.
I used a resin cast of the Otaki Hellcat cowl ring to improve the Hasegawa kit’s cowl.
The Photo Hellcat conversion was pretty simple, find where the holes need to be drilled on either side of the fuselage, fill the holes with some clear sprue, and polish them.
Hope you enjoy looking.
