Introduced in 1942 as one of the mainline Naval fighters for the United States, the Grumman F6F Hellcat was designed to be easy to learn, easy to land on a carrier, and still able to outperform its opponents on the battlefield. 

Introduced in 1942 as one of the mainline Naval fighters for the United States, the Grumman F6F Hellcat was designed to be easy to learn, easy to land on a carrier, and still able to outperform its opponents on the battlefield. Within just two years of service, the type was able to take down 5,156 enemy fighters, achieving an astounding 19 enemy aircraft destroyed down for every combat loss. Across the entire production run, 12,275 were manufactured, all leaving an incredible battlefield legacy that would be difficult to beat. 

 

Designed to have the upper hand over its opponents, the F6F-3 incorporated the legendary Pratt and Whitney R-2800-10 radial engine, producing up to 2000 horsepower. For its offensive armament, the Hellcat had up to six 0.50 caliber M2 Browning machine guns, with 400 rounds of ammunition each. Under the wings were 6 weapons pylons and 1 centerline pylon, carrying up to 2000 lbs of rockets, bombs, and torpedoes. Further into development, some F6Fs were fitted with an external radar unit on the right wing, allowing for combat in cloudy conditions or in the nighttime, where visibility was low.

 

Flown by Gordon Arthur Stanley, one of the prestigious Navy aces of WWII, this F6F-3 was operated as part of the VF-27 squadron onboard the USS Princeton aircraft carrier. Stanley was credited with 8 enemies destroyed, receiving the Silver Star and Distinguished flying cross as an award for his bravery, known for his devotion to duty without regard for his own life. Die-Cast version features engraved panel lines, pad printed decals, authentic livery, and realistic spinning propellor. Also includes optional landing gear, opening canopy, and display stand to show the aircraft in flight. Measures 5.75” in length with a 7.25" wingspan at 1:72 scale.
