Great build and scheme. i like that u used the zinc chromate color for chips. To many people only use silver and in real life it will wear down to primer before hitting bare metal. I use the primer color as the primary chipping color also.
Thanks Paul i agree on you about the primer thing im just not 100% sure about the cokor of it do brits also use the zinc chromate anyway it is an former us navy plane after all

Hello Aldican !!!
I don’t know how it happened, but I missed out on this F6F when you first posted it. Sorry ………
I just noticed your build tonight, and it sure does look great !! After looking at yours, I am really inspired to build one of my own for the 100 Years of the RAF Group Build now…………..
I built a Tamiya F4U birdcage about a year ago and used the same technique of Zinc Chromate under the top layer of paint, just as the factories did. I went one step further and painted the plastic base color under the Zinc Chromate, using “Metallizer” paints. It looks very authentic too and helps to break up a single monotone color. If you look at the wing root on my F4U you can see the effects of having both ZC and bare metal together. It’s a great combination, and is just like your model .
Your Hellcat is a worthy addition to the “Year of the Cat” GB.
Thanks for the posting, and welcome to Imodeler

Hey Louis, your corsair looks beautiful with subtle weathering loved the effect on the wing root zinc chromate / metallic combo looks realistic and not overdone nice model and by the way im glad that you liked my hellcat its a bit of an old and simple model but it can be easily made to a nice model
