Trumpeter F9F-2 Panther

Recommended Posts



You probably know this, you don't complete anything for months then two in two days.  I finally finished the second aircraft in 1/48 for my Korean War collection a Grumman F9F-2 of VF111 Sundowners, operating from the USS Valley Forge in 1952.  My first was a Corsair F4U-4 flown by Thomas Hudner who won the Congressional Medal of Honour whilst flying with VF32 from USS Leyte.


Great simple kit to build, enhanced only by Eduard's PE set.  The wing fold mechanism is represented well in this set, however I chose not use it.  The decals were from Victory Productions' F9F-2 Panthers sheet (VPD48008) which offers markings for 12 aircraft.


As I stated on my F-100C post yesterday, the next kit in line is a F7F N3 in 1/48 by Italeri in Korean War markings.  See the pattern that is developing here?

The Eduard PE set really brings the 'office' look really good and brings the kit to life.  Would highly recommend it.
