1/72 Academy Hellcat #2

Recommended Posts

Ahhh done. No complaints with a kit I purchased for under $10. It's about my skill level. I'm working on my 3rd Hellcat from Eduard, and it's going to take some time!

All paints are MRP except for Tamiya clear coat. OOB 'wif' based on about 5 different Hellcat pictures I printed for guidance

Bunker Hill ?

 

What did you do with the navigation lights? They look very realistic (together with the rest of the model;-)

Loosely based on a few Hellcat pictures I printed out and taped to my wall for guidance. Yes, one of them was from Bunker Hill.

Navi lights are all paint with thick coating of clear on top.

Well built, but if I can humbly offer a critique.  I think your gloss sea blue is a bit light.  I think the darkest blue you used on the tri-color Hellcat seems a better match.  That is just me.  Great building, though.

Allow me to say your skill level is definitely worthy of the Eduard! Great job on both

Superb!

The Eduard is said to be the pinnacle for 1/72 Hellcats, but your results with this Academy kit certainly compare favourably!

Very nice indeed!

Stunning model mate. Very well done and attention to details. Like mentioned above, I also like the navi lights and the lights on the fuselage.

Well done!
