Airfix 1/24 F6F-5 Hellcat

By Peter Fey

Finally finished my Hellcat diorama!

Pretty happy with how everything turned out. I built it about as out of the box as I could—I think the only thing I added was a pilot and the aerial antenna. Everything else was per the instructions (including the wiring harness). Markings were custom cut masks and the kit decals.

I love how the overspray turned out--think it looks pretty realistic, so left it (Channeling my inner Bob Ross...there are no mistakes, just happy little trees--or in this case realistic markings!).

Check out my build thread in the Work in Progress Forum for much more detail on the build, in case you missed it.
