Drone junk yard, China Lake, late fifties early sixties.

I recall several modelers building Hellcat drones in the past, this is where they go if they don't get shot down or a stint as a ground target. Looks like there's pieces of a Couger in the .

    Thanks for posting this. I have a set of decals for the Point Mugu Hellcat, and a few years ago when I was building up a Hellcat drone here on Imodeler, I almost built this one instead of the one I finally chose. Now recently I picked up an Eduard Hellcat, and guess what ? It also has a set of decals for this same plane... maybe the "modelling gods" are sending me a sign.
