Okay, ya forced my hand, here's my addtion to the Wildcat collection.

March 22, 2013 · in Aviation · · 4 · 1K

I used the kit with the Just Plane Stuff -3 conversion.

Unlike some of them sold mine was in good shape with no major problems.

I did sand down the flotation bag covers on the wings which stood a little to high.

It's a pretty straight forward conversion, the hardest part was finding enough information on the VMF-211 Wildcats.

Paint was Model Master inside & out and I kept it really clean.

These airplanes were freshly repainted on the way to Wake Island and didn't last long enough to get dirty.

I didn't do anything extra to it.
