Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat
VGF-29, USS Santee
1/48 scale F4F-4 Wildcat is available online from
Here is my 1/48 Tamiya Wildcat kit which I built as an
F4F-4 of VGF-29 on USS Santee.
The only accessories used were the Eduard photoetched set
and aftermarket decals.
This is a wonderful kit and very easy to build.
I painted the model with Humbrol Enamels and washed the
plane with oil paints thinned in lighter fluid.
The display base is a DIY picture frame combined with the
Verlinden "Carrier Deck", also painted and washed.
The figures are from "Hecker & Goros".
