    Eduard's 1/48 F6F-3 built as an early war example with different cannon and aerial configuration. One of the nicest kits to build, everything goes together beautifully and it doesn't need aftermarket, although I did add an Ultracast seat and my own decals.

    Great job Mike, and yes the Eduard kit is a beauty. Still have the second half of my Dual Combo in the stash.

    Once again, thanks for the replies. I believe Eduard has released a Hellcat in 1/72 scale which is basically a scaled-down version of this kit – now that would be worth building :)
