My Hellcats, all in 1/48.
I posted several photos of the Eduard Weekend Edition Hellcat II a couple of years ago when I built it. I added resin wheels, straps for the drop tank from scrap p/e, and p/e belts. This is the best Hellcat kit available today. Very enjoyable. The only issue I had with it was a weird gap on the bottom of the cowl, which assembles from two side pieces and a front ring.
The gloss sea blue -5 is a Hasegawa kit that I built in 1997, when it was still new. I disliked this kit. I remember it being a snake bit project, with some fit issues at the wing/fuselage joint on the underside. The clear parts also didn’t fit well in either position. I used Aeromaster decals on this one because the Hasegawa decals were the usual cream colored junk.
The tri-color -3 is an Otaki kit built in 1997 too. Very solid model considering it dates from 1971. The clear parts are ill-fitting on this model and the cockpit featured bogus detail. I added a resin seat and used Aeromaster decals.
