Grumman Hellcat Mk.I

Here is my 1/48 scale Hasegawa Hellcat Mk.I "Fleet Air Arm" built almost straight from the box, except the seat belts, made with protector cap of one bottle of wine (Rioja, Spain wine, the best wine of the world ;-)).

This was amongst the very best models - I did not need any putty thanks to its superb fit.

The plane represent the typical scheme of this machine in the front, with a very rare scheme of the black an white stripes.

Thank you of all my friends of the forums of yoryi ( http://miarroba.com/foros/ver.php?id=351025 ) in Spain.
