F8F-1B Bearcat

Very nice kit from HobbyBoss. There are some shape issues with cowling. Some sanding solve that problem. I've replaced wheels with those from true details. Eduard zoom adds some details in the cockpit. Fit of this kit is pretty good except wing to fuselage joint. Some filling and sanding is required there.

Wings have some shape issues too. Intakes are too close to body. I've put thin styrene... But the problem still exist. Anyway - it looks like a Bearcat. Thats for sure.

Although I know that, biologically speaking, a cat can't breed with a bear, they do produce a pretty spectacular (if theoretical) offspring. This model is awesome.

Very good looking Bearcat Vjekoslav! Like the french markings. I have the same version albeit from Trumpeter in 1:32. It has the same shortcomings with the cowling.
