Many, many thanks for commenting, especially nice to hear your thoughts @tonyot as your version of this was the original inspiration 👍

 

Thanks very much again,

Alan 👍

No worries Alan,.... credit where it is due,..... and I`m glad that my ramblings have proved of use. I really did enjoy researching the British night fighting Hellcat`s,

Cheers

Wow, Alan! This thing is fantastic!

 

You picked a very interesting subject as i don't know just how extensively the -5N was used by the FAA or if it was simply evaluated. As a former instrument flying instructor, i've gravitated towards night fighters and all-weather interceptors.

 

I need to go look at your build log now...

I didn't know that the FAA had ever been issued with the night-fighter variant.

Some great history and photos of loads of these NF.IIs in this thread:

That's an exceptionally clean and tidy build of this complex kit. It looks like it should be in a museum.

Thanks, I have approached the FAA Museum about donating it, if I could just get a proper case sorted for it!

 

Thank you again everybody who liked/commented 👍
