1/48 Hasegawa F6F-5 Hellcat
This Hellcat was flown by Texas pilot Arthur “Ray” Hawkins of VF-31 on the USS Cabot in September, 1944. I added an Obscureco cowl, Quickboost engine, and Squadron canopy. The pilot figure was bashed together from my parts box…head, torso, legs, upper arms, and lower arms. The paint is a Tamiya mix for Gloss Sea Blue but its actually more of a satin finish. The decals are box stock and were a bit difficult. The carrier deck is from Eduard. Comments are always welcome.
