  1. Thank you very much, I'm glad You like my model because I'm following your build of the Airfix 1/24 and admiring what you are doing
  2. Hello, this is my latest finished model (build for the Grumman F6F Hellcat STGB) Grumman F6F-5N Hellcat BuNo 78669 maj. Bruce Porter, CO of VMF(N)-542 Yontan airfield, Okinawa, May 1945 Eduard 1/72nd OOB except for Eduard Brassin resin wheels
  3. Grumman F6F-5N Hellcat BuNo 78669 maj. Bruce Porter, CO of VMF(N)-542 Yontan airfield, Okinawa, May 1945 Eduard 1/72 kit with Eduard Brassin resin wheels
  4. I finished my model: F6F-5N Hellcat "Nightfighter" BuNo 78669 pilot maj. Bruce Porter, CO of VMF(N)-542 Yontan airfield, Okinawa, May 1945 Eduard kit with Eduard Brassin resin wheels Thanks to the hosts for organizing this nice group build
  5. The nose gear retraction cylinder cover (piece G54) actually the wings are mounted upside down, I have not noticed
  6. Excwllent work Rather than a mistake I found a missing piece. it's right?
  7. Hi! I applied the very few decals and painted the walkways
  8. Thank You @Prenton You are right, the wings are not glued yet. I made 2 hellcats in 1/48 scale and another in 1/72 scale and in all of them I glued the wings only after having painted everything separately, it is very useful
  9. Thank You @dnl42 the masks are from an old Eduard set of national insignia (stars & bars only) for the Hellcat #XS517 they are made of vinyl, today they would be made of kabuky tape
  10. Good Morning! I hope I was able to reduce the monochromatic effect with the shades of H55, I then painted the markings using Eduard masks
  11. First coat of Hobby Color H54, in a second time I will do some glazes of H55 to make darker and shiny
  12. Hi all I closed the fuselage and temporarily mounted the wings and tail for pre-shading. I don't know how effective it will be as the base color is only slightly lighter but it certainly doesn't hurt
  13. Hi! I have been on vacation for a few days and I was finally able to resume the assembly, I finished the cockpit, next step is closing of the fuselage
