F8F Bearcat HobbyBoss 1/48

Recommended Posts

This is my recently finished HobbyBoss 1/48 F8F Bearcat in the markings of French service against the Viet Minh in the First Indochina War as fighter-bombers in the early 1950s.

This is a great looking Bearcat, a lot of detail in it, superbly painted and weathered. Those exhaust stains look like the real thing, how did you achieve it Serge?

Very nicely done, Serge! I'm not familiar with that kit, but I suspect a lot of what I can see in your model are extra details added by you? Beautiful paint work!   :)

 

Cheers,

Bill

Lovin your work Serge!

 

I built your kitten's twin sister a wee while back.  Nowhere near as good as your effort with all its detail and great weathering. However, I like it and it sits proudly in my cabinet at the moment. FWIW, here she is...

Lovely work. A Bearcat in my favourite scheme.

Beauty. I wasn't aware HobbyBoss did a Bearcat. That would look very cool sitting next to my HobbyBoss French Aeronavale F4U-7

Serge,

 

Beautiful Bearcat! The finish and detailing are both very realistic, and I echo the comments made regarding the weathering and exhaust stains. Is that overall Sacre Bleu? Just kidding- well done!

A great model of this little brute! :goodjob:

It looks as if they just took the biggest engine they had, put on some wings and that's that! :winkgrin:

I like it! :D

 

Cheers :bye:
