Hello everyone! I am a newbie, but I've finally found the "courage" to post my work for you to see I would like to share with you my building process of the HobbyBoss 1/48 F6F-5 Hellcat. A small introduction: I have been told on this forum that this kit has some rather serious scale issues. At first, I decided to put it aside, and got the Eduard 1/48 F6F-3 Profipack kit.

This is being built OTB with the exception of the guns. Bought a replacement brass set (tho can't remember who from!) The cockpit, fuse and wings went together without many problems. Only issue I faced wa
