Grumman F6F Hellcat

Hellcat II

Built this at the same time as the Hurricane I posted here a few weeks ago but only got around to finishing it this morning. Fairly straightforward build, could have done without the separate fin-tip antenna post which was instantly [...]

Nocturnal Predator...1/48 Grumman F6F-5N Hellcat, VMF(N)-533 "Black Mac's Killers", USMC

Hellcat double completed, after the F6F-3 now a -5N. Eduard Weekend Edition released in 2016. Sadly the fuselage code F(N)4 is oversized, also the fuselage number 21 and the cowl number 88 of the second included scheme are. Funny thing is [...]

F6F-3 Hellcat 1:72 Cyber Hobby CV-51 USS San Jacinto.

(link) How to fly Hellcat vid: (link) I received the Hellcat model completely unexpectedly for my name day. I didn't even know that the model was available under this brand. After looking at the contents of the box, I was sure it would be [...]

Jim Sullivan GB: 1/48 Otaki F6F-3 Hellcat

Jim Sullivan’s “F6F Hellcat in Action” Squadron book features a Don Greer profile of Hellcat F6F-3 “white 13” of VF-16 that flew from the USS Lexington CV-16 in December of 1943. I chose to model this particular aircraft for the [...]

Speak my name and I shall live forever: Jim Sullivan Memorial

Designed as a successor to the F4F Wildcat, the Hellcat’s origins can be traced back in 1938, with the contract for the prototype XF6F-1 signed on 30 June 1941. Instead of the Wildcat's narrow-track, hand-cranked, main landing gear [...]

Trumpeter F6F-5N Hellcat Night Fighter 1/32

Hellcat, everybody loves it, everybody has one so... I got me one. I saw many examples of this extraordinary fighter plane and many with the fuselage open to see the interior and I was encouraged to do it this way. I decided to work on the [...]

F6F-3 Hellcat (Eduard 1/48)

This is recently re-issued 8227 ProfiPack with a well-known Hellcat in this scale. I wanted to try new Eduard aftermarket offerings, so I've added 3D printed wheel bays and bronze legs. It's nice additions to the quite old kit, especially [...]

Jim Sullivan Memorial Group Build Started !

Hello everyone. This is a short note to let you know it's official. Our website owner / admin Martin (the wonderful fellow who has made Imodeler possible), has kindly given permission for us to have this brand new group build, held in [...]

1/72 F6F-5 Hellcat

My attempt to make headway on my stash of unbuilt kits settled on a second 1/72 Academy F6F this week. In 2021 I built this kit as Alex Vraciu's F6F-3 - (link). This time I would build the kit as a F6F-5 in overall Glossy Sea Blue. I [...]

Airfix 1/24 F6F-5 Hellcat

I have been on a long modeling hiatus but broke ground on the magnificent 1/24 F6F-5 Hellcat about two and half months ago. It is a really amazing kit, but true to form, I have added a lot of details to the kit. The WIP build to date can [...]
