Big and beautiful in a brutish way, here's a First Look Review of Eduard's lovely new 1/48 scale Hellcat.

Well I'll certainly be getting one of these, it looks like another fabulous kit. It could also be a very good canvas for some "Miracle Paint Masks". Another great review Rowan, I would never have known about the landing lights and gun fairings. Is there any reference that you don't have

Hi Mal

Thanks for your kind words and, in answer to your question... modern jets! I think I went to the same "It's a MiG!" School of Modern Aircraft Recognition as Nige!

All the best
