Our Price: US$41.99
Description
The ST7 Grumman F6F-3/5 Hellcat by Hasegawa has been around for decades! Despite its age, it is still a beautiful kit that could be built easily into a gorgeous model that captures the look of an F6F Hellcat well. The molding for this kit is petite and detailed; the engine is a work of art and serves a great start for super-detailing, and the parts fit is great! This could be an excellent first big scale piece for a modeler to move up from smaller scale model.

The Grumman F6F Hellcat is an American carrier-based fighter aircraft of World War II. Designed to replace the earlier F4F Wildcat and to counter the Japanese Mitsubishi A6M Zero, it was the United States Navy's dominant fighter in the second half of the Pacific War. The Hellcat competed with the faster Vought F4U Corsair for that role and prevailed, as the Corsair had significant issues with carrier landings. The Corsair instead was primarily deployed to great effect in land-based use by the U.S. Marine Corps.
