1/48 Italeri F7F-3 Tigercat

The F7F-3 Tigercat is a sleek looking aircraft that was built and entered service very late in world war II and also utilized in the Korean war. This 1/48 Italeri kit was a nice build but required a base to have it sit on the landing gear correc[...]

1/48 Scale F7F-Tigercat

Sometime in the early 1990's I met up with "Pylon Dave Jone's" who lived in Oklahoma/U.S.A. Dave sent me over 500 color 3-1/2" x 5" prints. I scanned in all of the photos, including several black and white prints then made a "master" CD disk a[...]

Something I did a few years ago, Snakeyes and gun pod came from Monogram F-4, rocket pods from Heller T-28, AIM-9's from spare parts box, fuel tanks from Hasegawa T-33, seat- Airfix Tornado. Not sure about the decals but they are S. Vietnam [...]

1/48th AMT F7F-3N Tigercat

I found this F7F-3N AMT kit to be a smooth build with no noticeable problems other than those that were self-inflicted. Despite filling the nose with lead, I found the model to be a dedicated tail-sitter. AMT must have been aware of that as they[...]

This is AMT/Ertl's original boxing of the Tigercat, the tools now owned by Italeri and since reboxed under their brand with minor improvements. The AMT kit is notorious for the awful tires used which would literally melt the wheels after awh[...]
