Tamiya's 1/48 scale F4F-4 Wildcat is available online from Squadron.com

 

Description

 

This is a Grumman FM-2 conversion based on the Tamiya 1/48 scale F4F-4 Wildcat kit.

 

 

I scratchbuilt a new cowling with the correct diameter and detailed the model with a selection from Reheat, Eduard, Aires, Falcon and added new parts.

 

 

Control surfaces and flaps are also made from scratch (not KMC, which displayed very poor fit and quality).

 

 

Decals are from Aeromaster.
