Since I'm in some WWII mode right now and I can't shake it off, best I can do is to display this Hellcat night-fighter.
Pin-up girls were not something common in US Marine corps and that is one of the main reasons why I chose this late version instead of most popular 3 tone camo Hellcat.
This Marine Corps unit was equipped with Hellcat night-fighters and fougt against Japanese air forces over Palau Islands and the Philippines. From this airbase, the unit flew patrol missions over the US Navy‘s forward base at Ulithi Atoll.
They got this unusual name "bat-eye", although it's known that bats don't use eyes for night flying.
Eduard profipack edition with resin wheels, radar and exhausts plus some nice PE for the interior. Definitely a best-buy when it comes to Hellcat in 1/48. Painted with Gunze and Tamiya paints. Chipping made by using paint as a primer under the scuffed sea blue...
