Troublesome Hellcat

Hi Folks: just finished the 1/72 Dragon F6F-3. I wanted to do the wing-fold for some time. The carrier deck is from Verlinden. However, at least with this kit, or my patience, I found the many parts fiddilly and the kit directions were not friendly…but then, I’m a history guy and never could figure out those 2d to 3d mechanical drawing aptitude questions on the exams. Oh well, I have a second one in my stash; maybe next time…

  1. “Fiddly” or not, looks to me like it turned out pretty well. I like that deck, too.

  2. Looks good with the wings folded Bert, well done.

  3. I agree with the other guys, this bird looks good to me! Wings folded is a nice change of pace. You nailed it in my book.

  4. Yes, interesting vignette with the Verlinden base.

  5. Thanks to everyone for your kind comments. Happy modeling……

  6. Looks great! And Bert I am with you on the aptitude test bit. I am up for a promotion and had to take a timed aptitude test like that…..I seem to have no aptitude. Funny thing is it is just a level up from the job I currently do. Good thing I interviewed well! beautiful Hellcat!

  7. Bert, I think you’ve done very well with what you had to work with. The dio looks outstanding.

  8. Hellava Hellcat! Got the same kit in my stash, wish me luck.
