"The Best F4F Wildcat Model!"
The best and first F4F Wildcat model I've ever built.

Wayne (Reno, NV)
This is a decent kit, Ive never been a fan of the trumpeter flap system and find it easier to just glue them where I want em' I did build one wing in the folded position with not much difficulty. I did notice there are a few parts such as observation windows that are not mentioned in the instructions along with a couple other items. As in previous reviews the trumpeter molds use a small injection port that is not a needed part of the item and must be carefully removed with patience. The clear cowling is a nice touch, I felt the decal sheet could've been much better! this is just an average kit however you can't really go wrong for the money$ Happy Modelling

"Wonderful detail"
So much detail went into this kit. Great fit on parts. Wings are touchy to put together. Engine has great detail. Rubber tires a plus.


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.
