Project: Angry F6F-3 Hellcat in scale 1:48
1:48 F6F-3 Hellcat (Eduard 8221)
18. August at 23:36:11 Share
David Thor Nice, thinking about getting this kit.
19. August at 11:50:45
Holger Kranich Oh this Looks like a serious modelling Project! I´m in!
19. August at 11:50:55
Dan Cook The wheel bays and gun bays are all pe. Models in themselves. Very intimidating. Need to get some Aires resin 50 cals to put in them
19. August at 12:00:32
Dan Cook UPDATE. Wimped out of the BigEd set. Going to save it for another model. Just too complicated for me. So will do it without and use it on the MkI Hellcat of the Dual Combo Hellcats in my stash.
20. August at 19:35:08
David Thor Still following! :)
20. August at 19:36:56
Thomas Bischoff Nice cockpit - you are not alone: I also have some Eduards PE in my stash I would not (yet?) dare to touch! The hobby should be fun and not frustrating :)
05. September at 22:51:58
Dan Cook Look at my Sea King Project Thomas. Just picked it up from a friend. Now that has some PE, white metal and resin. That's intimidating!
05. September at 23:49:42
Thomas Bischoff what would life be without challenges? I currently take a break from fitting the SBS resin cockpit into the Kinetic Mirage IIIS :)
08. September at 22:36:55
Erik Leijdens Nice work. PE can be very frustating, I almost always only use the seatbelts from a PE set. Some nice detail painting looks good too!

Michael Phillips Oooh, count me in! I have this kit coming up in my queue before too long. Interested to see how go about this.
Looking good so far Dan!
26. August at 02:50:09
Dan Cook I have the nice Caracl decals. Should be a MSIP II however, not counting the rivets and going to build it as is. There is a Wolfpack conversion but cannot find one as they are out of production. Like hen's teeth!
Trying to find a colour for the compartment behind the cockpit. Metallic blue colour? Only have Vallejo Model Air and some Tamiya. On the Tamiya version of the F-15C is says X-13?
Going to try your technique with to try and get things seamless on the intakes. However, there are some annoying location tabs inside the intakes. Hopefully you will not see them!
26. August at 10:01:00
Dan Cook Found out from a US friend who worked on Eagles at Lakenheath/Mildenhall that after 1980 the avionics bays were painted white not the elusive blue green metallic colour. Phew. That was starting to stress me out! Good old XF-2.
26. August at 10:47:14
Sarunas D Looks good. How is the intake fit?
30. August at 14:32:05
Dan Cook Its good if a little fiddly. There was a little bit of flash on the model and with Hasegawa hard plastic it effects he fit a lot. So some time with a Citadel seem line remover and sanders and they sit fairly well. Going to have to fill the joins. Considering being lazy and putting FOD covers on as the inside of the intakes have a lot of lumps and bumbs on them. Including the locating pins. Why they did not put them on the outside of the intakes I do not know!
30. August at 14:48:15
Dan Cook Just seen some FOD covers by QMT going to use them rather than mess with the intakes.
30. August at 18:16:20
Sarunas D Probably a better idea. I once made an intake cover from paper towel, aluminium foil, and water with white glue. Looks great and easy to make. There was an article somewhere on ARC Air Center.
30. August at 18:32:54
Dan Cook Just means I do not have to mess about painting and filling and all that. Can build and leave them pretty rough. Means I can get on too. Would have been a lot of boring work to get them seamless. You know if it needs any weight in the nose?
30. August at 18:39:49
Sarunas D Yes, it does need weight in the nose. Hasegawa 1/72 F-15D/DJ manual tells to add 3g weight to the nose cone. So it's going to be more for a 1/48 kit.
I'm also planning to cover the intakes on my Tamiya 1/32 Tomcat. When intakes and the lower fuselage are assembled, insides look very strange. So I decided to use the limited time and energy for more visible assemblies of the kit.
30. August at 18:44:37
Dan Cook Might have to mock up before I put the cockpit halves together to test it. Will start with 15 grams I think.
30. August at 18:47:03
Dan Cook No weight needed It sits pretty well. might just chuck 5 grams in just to be safe.

Dan Cook I hate this model! I can remember the first time I tried to build it!!! 1:72 is definitely not for me!!!! But will battle on!
13. August at 22:37:59
Mike Daniels Persevere Dan. I made the Airfix 1/72 Red Arrow Gnat a while back. It is a bit fiddly, especially the undercarriage but it all fits nicely together in the end.
14. August at 01:33:33
Dan Cook Not for me. Going to prime it white once I have cleaned it up a bit. Sanded maybe a smidge of filler. Then my three year old daughter is going to paint it pink and fluorescent red. She also has some custom decals with her name on. Bit of fun really during the summer holidays.
14. August at 01:37:21
Mike Daniels Look forward to seeing that!!
14. August at 01:38:26
Alec K As long as your daughter has some fun and dad time, is all that matters. I let my daughter pick her kit (when she was about eight), and she picked a little HO house :) At least you are building a plane
