FAA Grumman F6F Hellcat Italeri 1/72


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

While enjoying this sunny Sunday, I would like to share a bit of sunshine with you along with my latest built model. Actually, it was finished in 2017...

It is Italeri 1/72 Gruman Hellcat. It has been enhanced by Quickboost gunsight and Eduard seat belts.

The decals are from Aeromaster.

Hope you like it.

Cheers,

 

Antoine

Sorry for this. Internet still has some surprise for me ...

Excellent F6-F!

I have built the Italeri Hellcat and think it quite a nice kit, though it (apparently) has some significant critics.

Nothing to criticise about your build though.

Hello chaps,

Thank you for your kind comments.

It has been many years since I have been contemplating making this scheme as I like the visual effect of the white band on the otherwise very dark scheme. I'm glad you like it as well.🍻

The kit was indeed a pleasure to buillt but it has some place for improvement. The most obvious is the engine which has its front row that needs to be fllipped around (the front is at the back... not sure my explaination is very clear though...)

 

Cheers,

 

Antoine
