Well, this is a first on two counts. It's the very first pics taken of this ancient model, and it's the first set of pics I've posted that weren't taken at an airport! Bob Mack said he'd like to see the pics of my Monogram Hellcat, so I took h[...]
My first Hellcat since I started building models again..Lots of little flaws on her and they were all self inflicted. Fit overall was very good and the only issue I have are the kit decals, the white portion appears mostly cream in tone and not [...]

The aircraft depicted i[...]
Here is my next cat, this time I've chosen a Hellcat in a rather unusual livery. During WWII several Hellcats, mostly refurbished models were used in the most exciting role as a traget tow aircraft. To give their pilots a chance for not being mi[...]
