Another Molt Models HellCat begins to take shape..


Hey guys..

Well, I'm nearing completion of my Molt Models Hellcat.. This thing has been a breeze to build.. It's a sweet kit, I can't wait for the P-38 to hit the building table!

Anyway, I've seen plenty of the dark blue hellcats so I figured I'd do a little something different.. This scheme is actually a realistic scheme that was used by the Navy during Atomic Atmospheric testing..

Wow! Stunning paintjob. Most definitely a grand departure from NAVY blue. I'd like to hear how she flies as I always liked this plane.

It's a beaut, Tram. I always liekd the prewar schemes, Yellow, blue, silver, a whole mix match of colour.

Are those lithium cells puffed?

No.. the guy I got them from built the pack with spacers between each cell for airflow, so the pack looks larger than normal..

That's a good idea. But a bit misleading.

When will the maiden be?

Hopefully sometime this week.. I'm trying to get the MJ in the air and the Hellcat, writing a review and studying for my full scale written. Been a tad bit busy.
