Again works in progress. The first 2 pictures are from a 48 scale Hellcat that was a kit from the 60s. The kit was pretty cool because initially the landing gear actually would fold into the model and the wings still fold either up or down. I did end up permanently making the gear in the down position to avoid any breakage in the future. This kit basically had no decals so I had to purchase some for it as well.
The second beauty is a 32nd scale Hellcat I built years ago which, once again, (noticing a theme?) the decals were garbage and I had to hunt for new ones. There are not many options for 32nd scale Hellcat decals and I couldn't find a "night fighter" version as this plane is so I am just putting generic Hellcat decals on that I found and calling it complete. I did find a set where the original plane was painted solid blue as mine is so they won't be far off from accurate.
