Tamiya F4F Wildcat
Well….I couldn’t stand it and went ahead and decaled this one without the Future coat. I figured there weren’t that many decals goin’ on it anyway, so I tried a different method. After I applied the markings, I [brushed on] coat of flat lacquer – it turned out decently (for me). I already have two other Wildcats with the gear down, so this one got the gear up option. As usual with Tamiya, a pretty straightforward (and quick) build. The other 3 awaiting decals (B-17, P-47 & Avenger) will also wait for the Future – should be here this week. After I posted the pictures, I realized I should’ve painted wing-walk areas on it. Doh!
