Self assembly plastic kit

The Grumman F6F Hellcat was one of the finest fighting machines ever to take to the skies.
It was produced by the Grumman ‘Ironworks’ factory whose design philosophy was only to produce aircraft which were easy to manufacture and maintain and must be reliable in a combat situation.
Importantly, it had to 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 kit features over 550 parts. It can be built with wings either open or folded.

It includes full cockpit detail with open or closed canopy options, fully detailed radial engine, engine mount and all ancillaries and a separate engine cowling and forward fuselage panels.

The under carriage is fully detailed including bays and arrestor hook with options to build with the wheels up or down.

There are fully detailed gun bays with complete machine guns and ammunition trays.

It can be built with closed or extended landing flaps and has poseable control surfaces and trim tabs.

There is realistic surface detailing showing rivets, fasteners and rippled ‘stressed skin’.

The kit includes 2 types of drop tanks, 250Ib and 500Ib bombs and rockets.

It is 424 mm long, 543 mm wide and 139 mm high.
