Very nice, I built the Hasegawa kit in these markings many years ago but it doesn't look anywhere near as good as yours!

Looks good.  Well finished.  Now you need a BPF Hellcat II to put beside it in the cabinet..

(1/24 F6F-5 is too big for my Ikea Detolf cabinet😅  )

the next 1/48th scale Hellcat will be a F6F-3 in 3 tone scheme and a F6F-5 in overall GSB (US NAVY or FAA) to complete the collection

For the black and white stripes? I always have some problems with the black and white stripes because I support the opposing football team of the famous one with those colors , however, I really like them on this plane

Thank You

I have been home for 4 weeks, in fact this is already the second model that I finish since the lockdown started. I have already started the third and maybe I can finish it as it will still last 3 weeks

 

Thank You all

Looks good!  See you got some of your stencils on.  Building the -3 ProfiPack for my entry and the white stencils were awful, so ended up only doing two stencils before I decided to can them.

I put all the stencils except the white ones that were placed on the white stripes. I only had difficulties with those who had to be positioned on the black stripes and to a lesser extent on the sky, due to silvering

in some areas I put the Future wax with the brush because the airbrushed gloss coat was not enough
