Hasegawa 1/48 F6F-3 Hellcat

After completing my AM SBD-5 Dauntless a couple of weeks ago I decided it needed a companion on the shelf so I got out my Hasegawa Hellcat and got started. This has to be my quickest model build since I was a teenager. OK, it's straight out of the box except for needle blank gun barrels, but I still usually take months or years to complete a build. It was fun, I didn't worry about finding a more correct engine cowl or a Verlindin cockpit interior or some obscure markings to replace the kit decals with. Here it is.

Another beauty! I love the summer-of-43 markings with the red trim.
