1/48 Otaki F6F-3N

November 29, 2012 · in Aviation · · 3 · 1.9K

This is the 1/48 -3 with a F6F-5N cockpit and radome. The canopy is a vacuformed replacement and the decals are Superscale. The underwing insignia is hand painted around the radome. I enjoyed working on this as the kit feels as solid as the real plane looks!

  1. I don't think I could've done that bottom insignia as well as you did. I probably would've tried to hack up a decal or two and do it that way - (hand-paint it...forget it).

    • let me clarify, just the bar portion that wraps around the radome is hand painted! call it professional artist/art teacher/self taught signwriter in high school!
