Royal Navy Wildcat/Martlet Mk V, 1/32 Revell


Recommended Posts

This is the old Revell kit build from the box, just with the addition of spares folder decals as I bough her second hand. A simple kit with minimal interior detail, but I did like the surface detail and it looks quite nice built up. I went hard with the weathering as these aircraft tended to get pretty filthy. Not a modern "uberkit" but still a nice build.

I like it a lot, good job. When I was a kid one of my friends had this model on a shelf (built by his father) and I spent many happy hours just looking at it. Those were the days...

Very nice, built this some 45 years ago myself. Did you leave the wing fold functional? I glued mine in place as the wings sagged.

Glued in place, but I only committed glue to the joint at the very end and I modified the pins so I could add the outer wings last.
