Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The F4F Wildcat was an aircraft of the type of which legends are made of. Approaching obsolescence when it first entered combat, it managed to hold up against seemingly impossible odds. Without the handling performance that made the Japanese Zero so famous, it was well regarded for its ruggedness and firepower and, in the hands of a skilled pilot who understood both its strengths and weaknesses, it was capable of holding its own against the best its opponents had to offer.

This book details projects that encompass four variants of the F-4 Wildcat; the F4F-3, FM-2, Martlet III and the Martlet IV. As they were supplied to a wide range of air forces during the war including the RAF, there is a wide range of markings available to a modeller. A number of these are also dealt with in detail over a range of modelling abilities from a beginner's first build to an expert modeller scratch-building extras, all illustrated with full color step-by-step photographs.
