Hobby Boss Aircraft 1/48 British FAA Hellcat Mk.I Kit
The Grumman F6F Hellcat was a carrier based fighter, designed to replace the Wildcat within the US Navy. It was incredibly successful, and a number found their way into Royal Navy service under lend-lease arrangements during WWII. Originally to be called the Gannet Mk.I, it was re-designated to share the original Hellcat name with the F6F-3 on which it was based.
