Here is another pair of Sweet 1:144 General Motors FM-2 Wildcat VIs I built back in 2007.

Builds were OOB with just the wing probe being added from wire.

They were both painted by brush with the final varnish being airbrushed.

 

First: Wildcat VI JV640/"O", of 881 Sqn, HMS Pursuer, Fleet Air Arm, in Southern France, August 1944 during Operation Dragoon, the first combat use of the Wildcat VI.

I have a few of these in the stash for a rainy day but eyes not up to the job at the moment 🤓

Nowadays I always work with a headband with magnifying glasses. One of my best buys ever!
