F6F Hellcat
Almost Ready-to-Fly 55-61cc/EP Giant Scale Warbird

F6F Hellcat - Giant Scale Gold Edition (Pilot figure and optional drop tank shown are not included.)

Set Against the Rising Sun

Japan had hit America where it was the most vulnerable. America's battleships lay at the bottom of Pearl Harbor but the carriers were untouched. Until 1943, however, America didn't have a carrier aircraft that could match Japan's Zero. With the F6F in '43, finally something could handily defeat the Zero. From 1944 on, Hellcats racked up victories at an ever-increasing rate. So many Zeros were sent spinning into the ocean at the Battle of the Philippine Sea that pilots dubbed it the "Great Marianas Turkey Shoot".
