Many years ago I built the Tamiya Merkava and lost it.
Some time ago I found an offer for this model made by Takom and decided to buy it to assemble it when there was time.

Again this is a new model kit of a Polish manufacturer Arma Hobby, released in May this year (2020). FM-2 kit is the first variant of the F4F's, and more to come - the clear sprue contains fuselage windows not needed for this GM-built Wildcat.

The kit’s top curve of the nose is off, it is not as it needs to be, it has a di[...]
Revell's quite recent kit of the F4U-4 which has some short cuts and emmisions due to being offered as both an F4U-1 and F4U-4. I didn't bother with most of the inaccuracies and built the kit mostly out of the box. The overall shape however is v[...]
