This is the AMT with aftermarket cockpits, canopies, props, landing gear, and wheels. The figures were bashed together to make Korean War era Marine aviators.

  1. Great looking Bearcat, John.
    Paintwork on those pilots is outstanding.

  2. Very nice. Don't see these modelled often enough

  3. This an amazing model, John!
    Love the weathering and the figures, as well!

  4. Very nice work here on airplane and figures.

    How did you correct the nose? The kit has a very incorrect nose with a curved top line and too-small nose tip, which isn't the case here.


  5. Excellent work as usual John, that's one good looking Tigercat. I also went AM for the landing gear and wheels on my build as the kits gear is very fragile. Didn't think it could stand up to the lead weight in the nose. Again well done John.

  6. Great presentation, getting a photo of the real plane just adds more interest to the finished model because your Tigercat looks awesome. That’s one kit I need to start for the Forgotten War GB

  7. Beautifully done Tigercat and dio!

  8. I know little about the aircraft or the kit, but must say that sure as hell looks really good! Nice job on the model and integration of the aftermarket goodies. The presentation really makes it special.

  9. Terrific looking model, and the figures and base really set it off perfectly, definitely liked.

  10. That's a great-looking Tigercat! Well done.

  11. Lovely Tigercat Like your figures too!
