Customer Reviews

PriceVery nice build 5Very detailedAwesome model very detailed everything fit very little flashing to remove. Highly recommend! 5Four Starsgood model 4An F-6F worth both my time & moneyA very cool "War-bird" and a very fun build. Just few small draw-backs worth mentioning....the canopy doesn't open & close with any decent action. I think it was designed to be glued either open or closed. it wouldn't say in either position with-out glue. And it doesn't have a moving propeller. The exhaust pipes wouldn't line-up w/ the exhaust ports, I finally just cut them down so I could put the cowling on. And lastly, the canopy was very scratched-up (even though it was in a separately sealed baggy) I guess my kit had a very rough ride to get to me. Everything else fit great except for the earlier for-mentioned exhaust. The flaps were left adjustable along with opening gun-bays, and I liked that touch.The decals were just fine too, but larger stars-n-bars decals required a 7minute soak before they could be applied. I did go with the two-tone topside colors but didn't follow the box cover scheme. I was running outa gas at this point and it didn't matter that much to me. The real "MIMSI lll" is currently painted all dark blue on top. Don't know who owns or flies her currently, and I don't really care. I just wanted a really inexpensive 1/32 F6F. And that's what I got, but a very nice kit as well...so, BONUS! I hope this review was helpful. 4Five StarsThis is great! Very detailed! LOVE IT! 5A Pleasure to Build!The Hellcat has always been my favorite aircraft and this model is exactly what I was looking for after deciding to build a model of it in the 1/32 scale format. And although this kit could benefit from certain enhancements such as engine and cockpit upgrades, Hasegawa got the general lines of the aircraft right, and it represents the F6F very well indeed. The best part for me was the ability to build either an earlier -3 or later -5, as parts and decals are available for both. This gives modelers the ability to decide for themselves which aircraft to build after doing some research, and not be stuck with the incorrect version if they happen to change their mind along the way. All in all an exquisitely detailed and well-molded model airplane that even 40+ years after it's introduction still holds up very well when compared to the more currently engineered kits in this scale from Trumpeter. Buy it and you definitely won't be disappointed! 51/32 hellcati recently have bought this 1/32 hellcat and it is a awsome kit, but the only thing is the cockpit is not up to date so u may have to order a cockpit from verlinden . i'm building this kit for a donation with flightdeck too. i think this plane is a good one lots of detail and excellent panlelines and all the markings to make a nice static dispaly. 5Great model kit for the 1970's, but not anymore. Too many inaccuracies and fit issues.I've built two of these kits. The first I never completed because it was truly an onerous task to finish. The second time I was able to complete it, but when I placed it next to a smaller 1/48 Hasegawa F6F-3, I quickly saw how bad this model really is, so I gave it to my son. Keep in mind that my opinions of the big Hasegawa Hellcat kit are now jaded because Trumpeter has four Hellcat kits out here in this scale. Before Trumpeter, this model kit was the only game in town and we made do. Not anymore. What I like about this kit is the propeller. If you're building a 1/32 F4U-1A Corsair from VF-17 then this prop is a great kit bash item to add. Many VF-17 Corsairs retrofitted with the smaller diameter prop in the field. Secondly, Hasegawa got the profile shape of the rear fuselage behind the cockpit right; Trumpeter did not. Lastly, the surface detailing is subtle, not 100% accurate, but in my opinion better than Trumpeter. Where the Hasegawa kit fails is with the engine. Great for the 1970's, but not today. It's basic in shape and not accurate. The cockpit is rudimentary. The belly tank is accurate in shape, but the straps that hold it are really bad. The landing gear is sturdy, but not accurate. The wheel wells are blank spaces. The fit of the gun bay covers is really off, leaving gaps where there should be none. The wings come fully extended with no option for folding back. This wasn't a big deal until Trumpeter provided that choice in their kits. Finally the fit. Again, it's representative of model molding technologies from 40 years ago. Nuff said. This kit was okay for its time, but has since been eclipsed by newer releases. 2
