1/48 Glenco J2F-2 Grumman “Duck”
This is the Glenco 1/48 scale J2F-2 Grumman Duck representing VMF-2 that patrolled the Caribbean Ocean off the Virgin Islands. The Duck’s were used for patrolling areas and performing search and rescue of downed pilots.
The kit had very basic details (it was originally released as a model toy with a rubber band powered wheel) so many details including the entire cockpit were scratch built. All the rigging was done with EZ-Line. The canopy was replaced with a Squadron Vacu-form version and installed open.
All of the details and build photos can be seen in the build log – https://davidsscalemodels.com/build-log/1-48-j2f-duck/
