My Bucket List
By mirecyli March 3, 2017
I almost didn't model this plane because it was used post WWII. My bucket list involves seeing as many WWII aircraft in action as possible and to hear them fire up. Static displays are fine but to see and hear them come alive is awesome. When I began traveling to airshows I went to the Commemorative Air Force airshow so I could see the greatest number of planes in one place at one time. Since I got there one day early I paid a visit to the airfield and this Bearcat fired up just as I arrived. I wasn't even sure what it was but when I heard a piston engine fire up for the first time ever I was for sure hooked. This is a fine kit which comes in a sturdy box, packaged well, foam wrapped canopy, full color guide for decal and paint schemes and strong sprues. Almost too strong as some parts took careful removal. My main complaint is with the tail wheel assembly; too many tiny parts resulting for me in a very weak assembly which I broke. There were only two decals for the four blade propeller, four of one and two of the other, an over site I guess. The kit has the option to cut the wings for folding. I do not understand how to make the propeller spin for there is a short shaft which doesn't reach through the engine assembly so it just fits in with no attaching. This is the second kit where I have run into this but I like the finished product.
