Grumman F6F Hellcat, Fujimi

Greetings, friends and modelers. Back posting again after life got busy. I'm easing my way back to modeling by repairing and upgrading an old Fujimi F6F I had originally done in the 1990s. Decals had flaked and my repairs were [...]

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 [...]

Trumpeter F9F-3 Panther

I recently completed Trumpeter's F9F-3 Panther for a Korean War group build. The kit was built out of the box. No add on accessories. The fit was not too bad. There were a couple seams that needed addressed. Just another day at the bench, [...]

Tamiya Wildcat

This is the third of three kits I picked up from the vendor tables at last year’s local IPMS contest, the Tamiya 1/48 F4F-4. (And now I’ve finished all three. Yay me!) As usual with Tamiya, the kit goes together without a problem. The [...]

35 - 1/48 Italeri EA-6B Prowler

Wow what an amazing Kit. I absolutely loved this and the camo desert scheme. The kit went together great - the only part that needed a bit of work was the underbelly. Stated like most kits with the Cockpit and if you have the chance to get [...]

Yellow Wings...1/48 Grumman F3F-1, VMF-2, USMC

My dad´s next biplane, the first of some upcoming yellow wing subjects. Accurate Miniatures kit, accidentally decals for their -2 kit were packed in the box, so my dad decided to use them and do a Marines bird, all the numbers were [...]

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 [...]

In October 1940, Greece was attacked by the Italian Army. Though the Greeks repulsed the first Italian attack, the situation was difficult because Hitler was ready to reinforce his ally. A Greek Purchasing Commission came to the United [...]
