1/72 Grumman F6F-3/5 Hellcat

SKU: ACY12481


Of the 6,477 Japanese aircraft shot down by US Navy pilots in World War II, 5,156 were accounted for by the F6F Hellcat. Prior to its operational debut in 1943, the Navy Wildcats often were no match for the nimble Japanese Zero-Sen. The Hellcat, with its speed, armor and heavy armament changed all that, becoming the dominant fighter of the era.
