General Motors (Grumman) FM-2 Wildcat

About 18 years ago I converted the excellent 1:48 Tamiya kit to the latest variant of the Wildcat; FM-2 build by Eastern Division of GM and powered with the most powerful R-1820 Cyclone. Reduction of weight (2 MG's were deleted) in addition with the additional power of the Cyclone (1350 PS) increased dramatically the performance of the Wildcat.
Last week I noticed that this model is not present in the net...

The model represents the #16 from VC-79, based on CVE-83 USS Sargent Bay, 1945.

Die Fotos beweisen, dass du auch schon vor 18 Jahren exzellente Modelle gebaut hast.
