    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    The Wildcat was the main shipboard fighter when the US entered WWII. The F4F was barrel-shaped, with angular wingtips and rudder and a narrow-track undercarriage. The F4F was well armed and reliable, and was a natural shipboard aircraft, probably easier to land on a carrier deck than on land. The F4F never had an operational speed limitation.

    In this form the F4F-3 was accepted by the USN, and an order for 54 was received in August 1939. After the first two, the cowl guns were removed, and four 0.50 wing guns fitted. The production aircraft were powered by the R-1830-76 engine. Most F4F-3s had no armor and self-sealing fuel tanks.

    This is a highly detailed model kit of the US F4F-3S Wildcatfish by Hobby Boss. Parts come molded in gray. Includes decals and photo-etched part.
