Tamiya Grumman FM-1 Wildcat / Martlet mk V

It's another bank holiday weekend here in the UK so that means dodgy weather and lots of time to do some modelling. So with the rain lashing down on Friday evening I decided to crack open this little beauty for a bit of a change. 

Progress was very fast with a very small parts count so yesterday I got the cockpit and other assorted parts painted, detail painted and weathered before assembling the main fuselage. The kit even comes with a decent pilot so I will be adding him to the cockpit later. 



  1. Cracking start on that one Pete. Will you be at Salisbury this coming Sayurday?

  2. Thanks Terry, I am going to salisbury next Saturday but only as a punter. Our next show when we will be displaying is Avon in August.
