Gwen Phoenix Posted November 9, 2022 Share Posted November 9, 2022 Hi fellas, I won a bid on eBay for a 1/48 F6F3 corrected cowling by Cutting Edge, but now I'm entertaining serious doubts about it being legit. Thing is, when the bit arrived, I saw it's all plastic - not resin - I honestly dunno whether or not Meteor Productions ever injected their bits in plastic back in the day, hence I'm seeking your knowledge. I've looked up on the Interwebs for info with regard to this subject, and everything I found out was pictures of a resin bit with the separate lower cowl intake. This part was published as is, with a single picture; no sleeve or instruction sheet on it, so I think the lower cowl intake part might have been already glued. Mind you, the add clearly stated that the part was made by Cutting Edge, and that's that. But I surmise it's not. Here you are the pictures of the bit I got in the mail: Perhaps, if the part is not Cutting Edge's, you might help me identify which Hellcat kit this cowling is from? You see that the intake is not hollowed out (as it should have been were it legit), and that it's got a couple of tabs on the upper and lower inner cowling piece, where it should meet the forward fuselage. Also; this is the CN22 label, in which the vendor clearly affirms the bit to be Cutting Edge's. And last, but not least, a screenshot of the add itself in the eBay interface. If the part is bogus, I want my $48 back. Thank you for your help. Cheers, Gwen Quote Link to post Share on other sites
