Details

Successor to the Grumman Wildcat, the F6F Hellcat made history in 1942 when it decisively whipped the Japanese carrier based fighters opposing it in the Pacific during World War 2. First flown on July 26th of that year, the Hellcat was the result of specifications laid down by a large group of fighter pilots polled by the officials of the Grumman Aircraft Company. In addition to its duty as a carrier-based fighter, the Hellcat served with the U.S. Marine Corps as a potent fighter-bomber.

Guillow was founded in 1926 by a World War 1 US Navy aviator and is the world's largest manufacturer of balsa wood model airplane kits. They have an enviable reputation for producing quality kits with excellent building instructions and plans.

The 500 series (16½" wing span) of WW2 models is their most popular range and is suitable for ages 10 years and upwards. These easy building balsa airplane kits contain laser cut balsa parts, plastic cowls and canopies, decals, plastic prop, wheels, tissue and a 24-page model building booklet. Models are approximately 1:30 scale.

Each kit is supplied with a rubber band motor for powered flight but can also be adapted for gas powered control line flying with a .020 engine (not included).

These model construction kits have scale realism for the super detail fan and light weight for those who build and fly. Each model is a small but faithful replica of a well known airplane.

A great kit representing excellent value for money and hours of fun!

Requires adhesives and basic modelling tools to complete.
