Trumpeter F4F-4 finished

Recommended Posts

Finished with this one I'm pleased to say. I did have some high cuss-factor moments especially the landing gear. I replaced the poor kit seat and control stick with items from my stash. Painted with Model Master Navy Blue Gray, White Ensign Lt. Gull Gray, and Colourcoats Bronze Green. Decals are from Wolfpack Designs and depict a a/c flown by Marion Carl on Guadalcanal. The finished model does have a couple of shortcomings but that's just the way it is. Still, I hope you guys like the results of my efforts. Remember to click on the first photo for best resolution and slide show.

Simply, one gorgeous Wildcat. Beautifully built and you nailed it. Weathering is light and realistic and you paint work - perfect, just flawless including the wing fold.

Keep ‘em comin


Thanks for the kind comments Peter. Very much appreciated. :)

Maybe you can finish mine - I'm just about at the finish line but takes me forever to complete models 😕

Hang in there Mike.:)
