Hi guys,
I went to my local hobby store looking for a small nice mojo booster and found this little kit by Eduard.

[84106a]

Life and work is quite busy at the moment but didn't want to miss out completely on this GB. So my entry is this cute 1/72 Hellcat by Eduard. It comes with a small PE set and canopy masks for just €12. The kit does look very nice, like a shrunk down 1/48 kit. Started to cut the first pieces right away and I hope to post some first progress soon.

Nice choice for a quick build Fabian and a good start [thumb]

I built it's big brother a while ago and it went together very nicely so I'm going to enjoy watching you tackle this one.

Thanks guys. I have build a 1/72 Zero in the last GB. Think they will look great together. The Hellcat will look very beefy next to the skinny Zero 😊

I too have built the 1/48 Eduard F6F, and looking at your pics I would be hard put to tell them apart.  Looks like you've made a great start, mate.

Hi guys, had some nice bench time this weekend. Painted up the cockpit and got pretty much everything together, ready for painting. I can already tell that this is a very nice kit with nice details and good fit. I'm enjoying the build very much so far. Here are some pictures.

Thank you guys. I’m happy spending some time at my working bench 😊. I do have the Eduard Hellcat in 1/144 scale. Thinking of building it as a side build to this entry. I can post some pictures if you’re interested. It’s very cute and the 1/72 Hellcat suddenly looks huge next to it 😂

You should also do the Airfix 1/24 Hellcat.  That would really be a comparison to behold!
