1/48 F6F-5 Hellcat Pacific Aces Limited Edition

The Wildcats bigger, badder brother

Simple construction, speed, armor and a heavy armament made the F6F-5 the U.S. navy's favorite fighter in the Pacific Theater where it was credited with over 5,000 kills. 2,000 horsepower engines made the F6F-5 faster and more maneuverable than the Japanese Zero. This edge in performance helped Lt. Ray Hawkins shoot down 14 Japanese aircraft while in the F6F.
