My most favorite aircraft may be those of the Luftwaffe of the WW2 period, single-engine and twin-engine, but being a fan of aircraft with a propeller, do not leave me unmoved many of the aircraft of … enemies!
Especially the American approach to the subject, that is, the bigger and stronger, the better, results in some of the most beautiful aircraft ever flown.
The legendary Grumman Cat family is a concrete example.
So one of the members of this family is the Tigercat, in my opinion one of the most beautiful twin engined airplanes of all time.
So how do I resist and not succumb to the temptation to get this kit?
It is really a very demanding kit, with “millions” of pieces, which has everything (resins, photo-etched, metal, fabric), which exhausts the modeling skills in the simplest tasks as it requires endless hours of cutting, sanding and matching parts, many times between pieces of different materials.
In many stages the modeler is called upon to improvise and construct something from scratch, while his attention must be absolute in handling some small and fragile pieces.
We will see all this along the way, fortunately we have time although something tells me that I will run out of time if I want to end up with something decent in my hands.
The aircraft I will build (I hope) is one F7F-3P of the U.S.M.C. ,MAG-33 , as is in Phoang , Korea 1953 .
