    I'll be entering Eduard's 1/48 Hellcat II built out of the box and with kit decals for JX814 of1844 Sqn FAA, flown by S/Lt W.M.C. Foster from HMS Indomitable, Okinawa April 1945. Whilst the kit proclaims 'Weekend Edition' I predict longer :lol:

    I've got several Japanese aircraft in the stash but the will be "captured". Bring it on Steve, I've got one that's destined to be a pretty red, tail color to be determind.

    A good choice steve, plenty of good cats done before so you will have some good reference to use.

    Thanks guys - lots of love for the Hellcat out there. I was hoping to have started this one today. Instead I'm sat waiting for roadside recovery. Sounds drivetrain-y, no doubt means ££££
