Spotlight Review

"The last of Grumman's Cat Series of fighters."
The Bearcat was Grumman last Cat fighter and final piston-engine carrier fighter before moving unto the Panther and Cougar jet fighters. This is a good effort by a relative newcomer in model kit manufacturing. This model looks and feels like an old school garage kit (like Japan so lovingly produced) but has more detailed (more or better but not Tamiya level) instructions and surprisingly clear color illustrations for various aircraft including one for a target drone. This is a polystyrene model as per usual mass market kits with pretty good details and recessed panel lines. I built this kit about 2-3 yrs ago but I don't recall having any major issues with fitting and assembly. Everything was well molded with little flash and the canopy parts fit great. Only surprise was (this is why I referred to it as a garage kit), the pieces for the cockpit interior was resin cast. It's one big piece and you have to saw off a massive sprue at the bottom of the cockpit. So there's some work there but otherwise it's a straightforward build. I'm happy with this kit and recommend it for experienced modellers.
