This my very old Grumman F6F-3 Hellcat from Otaki in 1/48 scale.

It was my first airbrush painted model, I built it in 1975 using an airbrush from my old friend Ben who gave to me a little tutorial to how correctly use it. I was very please with the result and I bought one one week later. One thing I don't like about this old model are the too exaggerated panel lines. LOL.

The model is for a Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat of VF-6 onboard USS Intrepid aircraft carrier in February 1944. The pilot was Lt Alex Vraciu.
