1/48 Eduard Hellcat Mk I

August 3, 2016 · in Aviation · · 11 · 2.2K

I built this kit earlier this year. 's kit is the best out there. My kit was actually the -3 Weekend Edition, but I traded for the decals and added an Ultracast seat. Mixed the paint using Tamiya colors.

The aircraft depicted is Hellcat Mk 1 sn 430, 1844 Sq. FAA.

  1. Good looking Hellcat. I wish there was a bit more light, to see the color scheme better - that's a very nice scheme. Where did you find the specs for the colors?

    • Sorry about the lighting. IIRC the colors were a mix that Roy Sutherland posted on Britmodeler. Will try to post a better pic. Also forgot, prop is UltraCast also. Kit prop is not so good shape wise.

  2. Nice lookin' build, Dale...I like it.

  3. Dale, great looking Hellcat, the markings give it something extra.

  4. You don't see this scheme very often. Well done Dale !. Will this be on the table next month ?

  5. Looks very neat, like the markings.

  6. Nice 'Cat. looks good in FAA markings

  7. Well done, Dale! I'm working on a 1/48 Hasegawa F6F-5 Hellcat right now. I hope mine turns out as well as yours.

  8. Very nicely done. I love all the Grumman Cats & yours is great.
