Grumman FM-2 Wildcat 1/48 Eduard

This is one of the best kits from Eduard. I bought the limited edition Wilder Cat, where there are parts for one plane, but decals for two. Brilliant idea to buy overtreess. And that's what I did right away. I want Wildcat to have an [...]

Review: Eduard continues to own the Wildcat

Eduard brought out the "classic" F4F-4 Wildcat, following that with the first really accurate FM-2 "Wilder Wildcat" in any scale, and then stealing Tamiya's fire about updating their 30 year old F4F-4 as an FM-1 with an [...]

Eduard FM-2 Wildcat, 1/48, 'The Wilder Wildcat'

When Eduard released their first F4F-3 Wildcat I bought it straight away and love the model they provided, a great little kit with amazing details and a pain-free good fitting build process. We knew they were planning on doing a whole line [...]

1/48 Wildcat VI (FM-2).

I finally got to build my first Eduard Wildcat. Eduard hit a home run with this one. Not only is it an accurate FM-2, but Eduard really raised the bar for 1/48 Wildcats. This kit renders the Tamiya Wildcat obsolete and in my opinion [...]

FM-2 Wilder Cat

For some time I've wanted the FM-1 and FM-2 variants to go with my Navy collection, but I just could not get excited about the Hobby Boss and Sword offerings which need a lot of work. Then I heard rumors about Eduard releasing the FM-2 so [...]

1/48 scale Eduard FM-2 "Wilder Cat" kit number 11175 USS Nehenta Bay, VC-8 August 5th, 1945. Lt / JG O'Connor

When I first heard that Eduard was going to be releasing a brand new FM-2 Wildcat in 1/48 scale, I was very excited. I had the older Hobby Boss FM-2 kit, and it fell short in some areas. So I was not in any hurry to spend as much money [...]

Eduard 1/48 Grumman/Eastern Aircraft FM-2 "Wilder Wildcat"

The Wilder Wildcat: Quick: which World War II U.S. Navy fighter had a kill-loss ratio of 32:1? Was it the Hellcat? Nope. The Hellcat’s score was 19:1. Was it the Corsair? Nope. The U-bird’s score was 11:1. It was in fact the FM-2 [...]

Review: Eduard's 1/48th Grumman FM-2 Wildcat

When Eduards brought us a new tool F4F-3 Wildcat late last year, we all assumed that as they have with the Zero, Spitfires and the other series of variants they would eventually give us an FM-2. And here we are much sooner than expected [...]

Grumman FM-2 Wildcat "The wildest Wildcat", ArmaHobby 1/72

A bit about the aircraft: The Grumman FM-2 Wildcat is an improved version of the F4F-4 variant. The most noticeable difference is the larger tail fin, furthermore an improved powerplant was installed and the ammunition capacity was [...]
