Ready for inspection is my Airfix 1:72 Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat. I have built it straight from the box, with the sto-wings folded, the only deviation from the instructions is that I have used Vallejo acrylics (my personal preference). This is a cracking little kit, no flash really, lots of detailing, and it went together with relative ease. I've really enjoyed building this aircraft, and intend to build some more in the future. Thanks for looking.
My next build is Airfix's 1:72 Grumman f4f-4 wildcat. I'm really looking forward to building this kit, it looks great, it's a pretty little aircraft, and I'm imagining the Sto-wing will be a challenge. The kit contains a detailed instruction booklet with a choice of two colour schemes, and a small decal sheet. There are four grey sprues and a smaller clear sprue, all are very detailed with no visible flash, it looks like it will be a superb kit to put together. I plan my build to be finished in the scheme of Wildcat VF-6 United States Navy, flown from USS Enterprise (CV-6) 1945, with landing gear down and wings folded in the Sto-wing position. It will be a right out of the box build, using Vallejo acrylics, I will aim to find the correct equivalents to the suggested Humbrol colours. Time to get underway, the sprues have had a wash and coat of Vallejo primer.
