Good day modelling mates! Not 100% sure and would love some input. Did the late F4F-3 have shoulder harness or only lap seat belts? I'm building the Trumpeter 1/32 F4F-3 Late version. I'll work on getting a thread going with pics for I am always searching this site, but should also contribute so that I can get some good feedback/criticism as I get back into this hobby. Thanks all!! KJ
Hello all, I’ve built this Wildcat and base as this year saw the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Coral_Sea), and a tribute to the USS Lexington (CV-2) and her crew. Apologies if the post is a bit text– and photo-heavy… there are a few images of modifications/progress at the end of the post. Although there has been subsequent debate on how much the fate of Australia depended upon the outcome of this battle, it
Hello All, I am wanting to buy a few of the Airfix 172 F4F-4 Wildcats, as I see them pretty cheap at the moment. I would like to backdate/convert one to a -3 variant in British markings. I read that some had folding wings, some didn't. All had the two-flap cowl and 4 guns? On converting one to a Gloss Sea Blue late variant, say a FM-2, too much surgery and best to buy a whole different kit? Thanks for any advice/light you can shed. Jeffer
Starting this kit is an attempt at regaining my interest in modeling. Lost interest due to the mad cow attack and my father having a heart attack. His time is up, he is 82 smoked for 70 years, but has excellent lungs. According to Admiral's instructions you can build an F4F-3, F4F-3A, F4F-3P and a Martlett Mk III and I think if you don't cut the fuselage you can build a Martlett Mk I. This is the first step - cut the fuselage. I am not so sure of the second cut though. I am wondering if these instructions a for their FM2. Thanks for looking. Stephen
