Grumman F8F-1 Bearcat - 1/72
This is one of the US-Navy cats that I like really more, due to its aggressive looking, powerful engine and operational history.
The kit is the old Monogram released in 1976 in a new Revell box with new and good decals. Despite the quality of the kit being the normal at that time, its shapes and proportions are acceptable, even with all the errors and confusion between versions in the same kit.
I added some simple details such as the interior in plasticard, wheel bay, gun sight, pitot, brakes actuators, navigation lights, and so on. All painting in polyester, PU clear varnish and weathering in oils.
Finally, one small but showy model in my collection.
PS: This was perhaps the fastest building I have ever done. Just 15 days.
