The Arma FM-2 is out.  There are some very nice markings choices in the kit.  A must have.  Arma has also announced that they will follow up this kit with an F4F-4.  This gives me hope they will do an F4F-3 as well.

A model company who admits an error and offer to make it right.

Also, from the same company, I want this F4F-3 conversion.

Starfighter decals

On the F4F that I recently completed I used Starfighter decals sheet for F4F-3s in the yellow wings scheme.  These decals were very nice.  Very well printed.  Very thin and the reacted well with setting solutions.  I highly recommend them.

F4F-3 Done

#2 for the year is done.  The Hasegawa Wildcat modified to an F4F-3 and decaled with Starfighter decals.  It was a fun build but I got tired at the end.  I do like the look of a yellow wings aircraft and may do an F2A in the same scheme.

Just to prove that Mr. Bates isn’t the only one making modeling progress, here are some photos of my recent efforts.  The Wildcat photo is a week or two old and it has made more progress since then.  The Spit. is an Airfix Spit. I that I am doing just because these are sweet kits.
