Tamiya's 1/48 scale F4F-4 Wildcat is available online from Squadron.com
After receiving a copy
"Applied Modeling Encyclopaedia", reviewed earlier on HyperScale, I
was inspired to build a US Navy aircraft after the fashion of an F6F
Hellcat in the book.
For a little variety I
applied the techniques to a Tamiya 1/48 scale Wildcat, following the
steps in the book. The result was a weather beaten aircraft that appears
to have seen a lot of action!
As expected, this
Tamiya kit went together without any hassles.
The model was sprayed
with Tamiya and Gunze acrylics using the Testor Aztek A470 airbrush.
Wings 'n' Things at Gladesville
for supplying the kit.
