Here’s my attempt at the 1:48 Accurate Miniatures Grumman F3F-1, which I completed several years ago. It’s built straight from the box, aside from the antenna wires I added. The kit is a real jewel, and goes together beautifully – any flaws are mine alone. Accurate Miniatures was my favorite model company, and I really hate they went under. The kits they produced were – and still are – some of the best examples of their kind ever made. I finished it with kit decals to depict an F3F-1 from Fighting Four deployed aboard USS Ranger in 1937.

Beautiful model!

I agree, it is a crying shame they went OOB.

That's a beauty, not many models can take that sort of close up without showing flaws.

I absolutely concur with your analysis on Accurate Miniatures first incarnation.

Very nice, I agree that AM kits are great. I particulatly liked the etched rigging on this one that just pops into place.

Cheers
