Trumpeter 1/32 F6F-5 Hellcat

By Matt Wohlford

This is my 1/32 F6F-5 Hellcat. It has its issues - but to me - it still looks like a Hellcat.

I tried to give it some character with a lighter colored wash (white and yellow mix). Also post shaded some panels & varied the final finish using both a semi gloss clear and flat clear. Not much in form of chipping as I hear the GSB finished were pretty tough. The weathering may be over done to the purist, but I'm overall pleased with it.
