Hellcat from 800 NAS (Pacific)

Recommended Posts

I don't know much about Fleet Air Arm Hellcats and my references don't cover them really well. Freightdog makes a sheet that has a Hellcat from 800 NAS that has a checkered cowling. I can't find any photos of one painted like that. Does anyone know of any? Thanks!

That's what I was thinking. There are a few 800 NAS photos from that time period and I've seen the same thing that you have.


There was another Hellcat Mk. II that was supposedly painted a lighter shade of blue (roundel blue-white mix). Is there any historical basis for that one?


I'd like to do one of those but I want it to be something that actually existed and that there are some photos of. Thanks for the info!
