Description Reviews

Few aircraft in the history of aerial warfare can boast the impact and combat credentials of the Grumman F6F Hellcat, one of the finest fighting machines ever to take to the skies. A product of the already successful Grumman ‘Ironworks’, the company’s design philosophy was only to produce aircraft which were easy to manufacture and maintain and must be reliable in a combat situation. Importantly, it must be an effective combat aircraft and able to be mastered by the average wartime pilot following a standard conversion period. This no nonsense approach ensured that the Hellcat was ready to fight and available in some numbers when they eventually reached US Navy units in 1943.

    This is a BIG kit with plenty of detail. There are 43 stages for the cockpit and interior assembly alone and nearly 60 for the engine. I have found it a pleasure to build so far. The only thing I’ve found odd is that there is no pilot figure provided yet you can select a in flight option to build? When it comes to painting there a couple of paint sets available from Vallejo and AK interactive which would suit this kit. Which are available from the scalemodel shop. You get plenty to do for you money. This is why i would recommend this kit to anyone with some experience of kit building although it is also not to hard for a beginner to attempt. Hope this short review helps.
    Lastly . Thanks to scalemodel shop for their fast response and delivery of this kit
