Default F6F-5 Hellcat Diorama 1/48

Hi folks,

this is my first submission to Zone-Five. In order to introduce myself: I'm 51 years old and started modeling ca. 40 years ago. I mainly build american aircraft in 1/48 scale, and my all-time favs are the F-16, F-104 and P-51.

Well, despite the fact that I've never been a big fan of the Hellcat, I really enjoyed the build of the Jasmine F6F-5. If you like photo etched parts, this kit is for you ;-) I added the magnificent Eduard R-2800 engine as well as other goodies and put them all together in a virtual museum scene.

Sorry for the rather blurry smartphone pics. I hope you like it nevertheless?!

Something to offend everyone.

People who disrespect the American flag never had to worry about coming home under one.

At some point in life, everyone has gambled on a fart and lost.
