1:72 ARMA Hobby FM-2 Wildcat

May 28, 2021 · in Aviation · · 13 · 2K

Another really nice kit from and another fun project. This kit has an abundance of detail for its scale. This Expert Set version comes with PE, painting masks, and decals and color guides for 6 options. The fit was terrific except for the cowling which was too snug. This project was also my first time using for all of the exterior painting. They spray like a dream through my Sotar and dry perfectly flat. They don't dry quite as hard as Tamiya paint though.
