F6F-5 Hellcat
By skippykeesler August 12, 2013
Another nice offering from Revell for a very low price.My only complaint about this kit is the lack of cockpit detail.I have ordered a aftermarket cockpit set for another hellcai kit and plan to modify it to fit the Revell hellcat.Overall all other detail is good.The decals are excellent.The instructions are clear and easy to follow.I am looking forward to this build and I think it will produce a very striking model.I would recommend this kit.

Great Looking Beast
By mcgoldrickkelly February 4, 2014
I did not purchase this off of hobbylinc, but i DID purchase this Revell Monogram version of the Hellcat. Overall, its a great model. It's different than most Revell fighters because the landing gear is meant to be retractable as are the wings. I followed the directions to a TEE and suceeded in make the landing gear retractable, as well as the tail hook that was used to catch the plane as it landed on the carrier deck. But, for the life of me, I couldn't make the wings fold up (even though I did Everything the directions told me to do). But, to me, that is no big deal as the final product looks Gorgeous in my collection. I chose the blue version, and painted the front of the cowl white. The decals provide further white markings that bring out the beauty of this plane (with a choice of two different planes to make). Finally, I was blown away at how much of a beast this baby is. Equipped with six rockets, two small bombs/torpedos, one massive bomb/torpedo, and 4 guns/cannons on the front of each wing. The F6F5 is only slighty smaller than my JU87 Stuka dive bomber! I'm very pleased overall.

Easy and fun build - accurate details
By jimwoodward1943 March 15, 2013
The manufacturer has the negative reversed or has put the left navigation light and the US insignia star on the right-side wing

First build
By Dan&Tami February 13, 2014
This was a fast fun build for me. Though i did have issues with placing the missiles on the wings and the cockpits decal. over all besides having to take the tail wings off and glue them back on facing the right direction I enjoyed this and will build again.
