The 1/48 Eduard F6F-5N Nightfighter with Illumination is finished.
This build is the 1/48 Eduard F6F-5N Hellcat Nightfighter. This is Eduard’s “Weekend Edition” so it comes with some resin detail accessories like radar pod, gun barrels, exhaust pipes, and under wing antenna. I also added Eduard’s photo etch cockpit detail set. I used the decals for VF(N)-90 that was aboard the USS Enterprise in 1945. This scheme is one of the scheme’s that comes in the kit. It is mounted on a Eureka XXL resin base that looks like the Enterprise flight deck. I used five LED’s and about 3 feet of fiber optic lines to illuminate The fuselage lights and the instrument panel.
