F6F-3 Grumman Hellcat from Eduard in 1/48 scale

F6F-3 Grumman Hellcat “Weekend Edition” from Eduard

The kit: “Eduard 84160 F6F-3P weekend edition” The model is almost completely build from the box, I only added seat belts. I had no difficulties during the contruction and the accuracy of fit is very good. Due to the size in 1/48 the construction was a little more fun than in 1/72. As a template for the profile I have used the F6F-3 from Lt. Arthur Singer. The aircraft belonged to the AG-15 aboard the USS Essex in 1944.

As you can see I’ve I have used my photography skills again. This part of my hobby is as important as the contriction of the kit itself for me, because I can immerse myself into this tiny world.
I hope you enjoy it and thanks for your interest.

Very affordable and highly recommended kit. High level of detail!
