F7 Tigercat Korean War Group Build

January 27, 2021 · in Aviation · · 11 · 2.8K

Hi everyone, this is the Italeri . I also finally get to go back to in-person at my school. Walking around, I also noticed some models around my school including a 1:16 kv1 and a Thunderbolt of an unidentified but very large scale. As for the kit itself, I broke the landing gear several times which is why they don't line up perfectly. There was a lot of thing getting broken during this build including both the engines and a photo reference tablet wrecked by my dog.

  1. Nice work on this Amari. Good "save" on all the disasters that could have sidelined it.

    Take care and stay safe at school.

  2. 🙂 ... Greetings ... 🙂 :
    A very nice "SAVE" it is Amari.
    Your weathering is at a good stage, very good in detail aiming.

  3. Great perseverence has sure paid off.

  4. Great result of a beautiful plane, Amari!

  5. Nothing visible of all the accidents that happened, Amari.
    You did very well on presenting a beautiful build.

  6. Nice work, Amari. It even survived a dog attack!

  7. One of my favorite kits and you did a fine job with it Amari, despite what your dog had in mind.
    Glad you hung in there.

  8. Nice ! You did a great job, one of the better looking Grumman aircraft. I might have to find an old Monogram !/72 to do.

  9. Amari, @themturtles
    This is a great save, and you did a wonderful job on building it. Your F7F looks great. Your dog is very smart... It is after all a Grumman Cat... 🙂 All kidding aside, you did a very fine job with this build and you should be very proud of the work you have put into it. It definitely looks the part of a Korean War Tigercat.

    I pressed the "liked" button too. Thank you for posting this as part of our Korean War group build.

  10. Good addition to the Korean group build, Amari, and I like hearing stories like the one about your dog, too, definitely liked.
