    Everybody is quite aware of the Grumman wildcat story during WW II,so we will herein go straight to the building.

    The chosen version is one of the earliest of the F4F-4:

    Great work so far. I did a '42 Enterprise F4F a few years back, but depicted one after the red had been removed. Should be a quick build judging by yours great progress.

    Yep, the Tamiya kit looks great! I have the same kit and looks really nice in the box.

    Those VF-6 airplanes were the first F4F-4s to go onto a carrier when they got back from the Kwajalein raid.

    Your work on the kit looks good.
