Trumpeter 1/32 F4F-3
By Olivier Barles
Here are a few pictures of my 1/32 scale Trumpeter F4F-3.
Assembling went easily even if sand paper was reasonably used in order to erase a little bit the deep holes that are supposed to be a representation of structural rivets!
Markings are those of a land-based Wildcat at Henderson Field in Guadalcanal (1942).
Based on some colored photos, I decided to have my painting "more grey than blue" as I find the available "ready-to-use" paintings on the market, a bit too blue...
Next model will probably be the Nakajima Ki-27 from Special Hobby that I've just received!
