    Hi Guys

    I,m building an 84" span Hellcat. It's an ARF kit by CMPro and I want to to put a bit more scale detail into it. I am just wondering if anyone can help me in the right direction to find photo's, websites or drawings to help me achieve this. The F6F is such an awesome plane. I want mine to be as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Happy landings
    Tim

    Let me know what you are looking for and I can probably help. There is one in the museum where I volunteer. You can also visit my website and use the search feature to find pictures of the F6F.

    Thanks Tim Glad I could help. That very Hellcate was flying around Camarillo all day yesterday. I don't know if someone was qual'ing or if they were doing maintenance flights, but it sure was good to see and hear!

    If you need anything close-up, let me know. I can run over to the airport at lunch to snap off a shot. I work 2 minutes away.
