Grumman F6F Hellcat - Rubber scale model. This plan is from the book 'Flying Scale Models of WWII' from Model Builder magazine. Quote from article text: - "Our prototype model features 1942 camouflage and markings, based upon an early production F6F-3 used during the Hellcat's aircraft carrier trials. A photograph of this machine appears in the Cater Illustrated Series book "U.S. Navy Markings, W.W. II - Pacific Theater," by Thomas E. Doll. We would like to extend special thanks to Mr. Doll, who also provided us with additional research material relating to this aircraft. During preparation for the model, a great deal of conflicting information was encountered, particularly in regard to 3-view drawings. Wherever discrepancies were noticed, photographs were used in preference to drawings in reaching conclusions. And, while certain changes were made for practical construction and flight stability reasons, an effort was made to retain the character of the full size Hellcat." Direct submission to Outerzone.
Did I get something wrong with this plan?
That happens a lot. Help me make a correction
No comments yet for this plan.
Note: This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly
and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size.
But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building
a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check
the scaling very, very carefully before cutting
any balsa wood.
* The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise
and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally
cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format.
Currently, and confusingly, it is also used to credit
people simply for uploading the plan to a forum
on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing.
This will change soon. Probably.
