Hellcat Mk1 Eduard 1/48

August 14, 2022 · in Aviation · · 22 · 0.9K

This is the second of my Hellcats ,this one a Mk1 flown from HMS Emperor helping to cover the Normandy landings hence the super cool invasion stripes and then was involved in operation 'Dragoon' ,the allied invasion of southern France.
As with my other I used aftermarket resin wheels for a bit of extra detail and the stencil sheet that didn't come with the kit.
I had no difficulty with assembly as you would expect from and can highly recommend these kits .
