One more to share before I go back to building and watching basketball.

This build was done using RVHP's Wildcatfish conversion for the 1/48 scale Tamiya F4F-4 Wildcat. Learned a lot about how to work with resin on this one. Instructions didn't jive well with illustrations either. I think it was a case of "lost in translation". Had to manifest some extensions from spare resin parts I had lying around for some of the supports. Thought about a flat coat, but then I realized this thing was rarely used, so I went with satin finish and decided to diplay her as shiny and new for the Admirals... or whatever. :banana:

The F4F-3S Wild Catfish... only one was built... here's mini-one. ;)
