Here's a First Look at Eduard's impressive new double-box of Royal Navy Hellcats with new parts and etched details to allow both Mk. I (F6F-3) and Mk. II (F6F-5) Hellcats to be built.

Great review Rowan.
I am very tempted to buy the dual combo. The Royal Navy Hellcats look great with a camo scheme.

Hi Andy

Yep! This is a really tasty release - and, of course, it's just nice to see the Brits get the first bite at the parts for the new version! It certainly makes a welcome change. But the price is so good, I reckon a fair number of US Navy modellers will jump on board too...

All the best
