1/72 Airfix F4F-4 Wildcat black 5, VC-58, USS Block Island, Atlantic, May 1941
Hello, this is my 3rd US NAVY rollout. This time I will show you my Airfix F4F-4 Wildcat in 1/72 scale. I have provided some photos of the build, to show you a little bit more of the story behind this project.
Don't hesitate to ask me about techniques or challenges.
In my opinion, Airfix did a good job on this model kit, however I added a photo etched cockpit, a resin motor and landing gear covers to this kit. I also have build a new (thinner) canopy, because the one from the kit is to thick in my opinion. But now, see yourself, hope you like it.
