Information

At the onset of the Pacific War in December 1941, the Japanese Navy A6M Zero fighter was the dominant aircraft successful against the allied air forces. The Zero's attempt at total superiority was thwarted by numerous F4F Wildcat fighters flown from U.S. aircraft carriers. Introduced in 1942, during the critical stages of the Pacific War, the F4F-4 was an improved version of Grumman's Wildcat carrier based fighter. This new version, with folding wings and six wing mounted .50 caliber machine guns, plus a more powerful 1,200HP Pratt & Whitney R-1830-36 Twin Wasp engine broke the dominance of the Japanese Zero. Grumman became known as the "Ironworks" due to its strongly designed airplanes which could absorb tremendous punishment and still fly home. Although the Wildcat was inferior to the Zero in many respects, a superb kill ratio was attained by Wildcat pilots by using its strong points against the Zero's weak points of fragility and unseasoned pilots.

F4F4 Wildcat Fighter
By skippykeesler July 1, 2015
A very nice offering from Trumpeter, this kit build into a very detailed model of the Wildcat. The only problems I had with this kit, were that I thought the control surface installiations were a little over complicated. Detail is good,as well as fit. There was no flash on my kit. Cockpit detail is good but can be improved with Eduards photo etch set, or Vereladin's cockpit upgrade set. The kit comes with a clear cowling, if you wish to leave it clear so that the engine detail can be seen.Overall a nice kit. I would recommend this kit.
