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.
Awesome build. 👍
Die Fotos beweisen, dass du auch schon vor 18 Jahren exzellente Modelle gebaut hast.
Beautiful cat Bernhard, all those carefully placed details and perfect paintwork make this one unique .
This is fantastic, could have been an actual one easily!
Awesome cat Bernhard!! 👍
Very nice work!
Wow, amazing detail
Even after 22 years, this one still is state of the art 🙂
Bernhard.....just a beautiful example of your work and its excellence, going back decades....
....Thank you for letting the rest of us mere mortals on to this build!
Top notch, amazing attention to details!
