Scale: 1:24 - Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat
The ultimate scale of Aviation models as far as we are concerned are the big 1:24 scale kits. Airfix launched it’s first – the Spitfire - when many of our designers were children themselves. The excitement of childhood and the models they created has driven them to make the Hellcat the ultimate Airfix model of the decade.
Introduced in 2019, the Hellcat is an aircraft carrier based WWII fighter – and our model allows you to build it in either ‘flight’ or ‘stored’ mode with the wings folded.
Just check out the video of the model included with the product illustration at the top of this page. You’ll dream of building this model whilst you await its arrival!
Comprising over 600 pieces, this will involve you in developing lots of modelling skills as you gradually assemble each detail – want to create a fully detailed engine – Go Ahead! Maybe you want a nice cockpit – it’s there in this kit for you!
There are so many different options to choose from, you could easily make 3-4 models and have each appearing significantly differently once built. You will certainly find the time and effort repaid in this model – our designers estimate around 180 hours are required to build and finish this model to a high standard – showing what great value this kit and our hobby is.
So, now the only decision is what options to include in your model – purchasing a Hellcat kit is not a decision you’ll regret.
