Eduard 1/48 F6F-3 Profipack, VF-38 #117

Was going to do the Hasegawa F6F-3, but I found this scheme today and had to do it.    So this is what I will be tackling, eventually, for this GB.

Love the colouration, not many Cats with that paint scheme.

Now that both the P-51B and Apache A-36 are off the bench, it's time to start the Hellcat.  In between the final details drying on the Stangs, I got the cockpit all done on the Hellcat.  Not sure this pretty white background will stay up or not, but I figured I'd snap pics while it's setup.  Right now my photo setup is in my wood shop.  It has the best lighting and most space.

 

Custom mixed Tamiya paints for the Interior Green.  Eduard did such a nice job on the Instrument Panel, it's a shame they didn't do much on the side panels.  Oh well, not much seen when button up.

Been a busy couple days.  This is my first Eduard kit and I was a little concerned with how the wings attached..........and I was surprised.  Pretty easy if ask me..........just some minor tweaks as the glue setup.  Got one little clear piece to put in the port wing and she is ready.  Even took the time to redo the fuel tank by adding the spine on.  Will work on the filler cap tomorrow.

Wow, that was a crazy landing gear assembly......but I am sure there are way worse ones out there.  I think I am permanently cross-eyed now.
