Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat USS Enterprise 1942 Tamiya 1/48

Not perfect but good enough for the exposition shelves…hope you like it.

Tks for stopping by!


Looks good! I bet that it will fit well with the rest of your 1/48 aircraft builds.

Very nice little “Stubby”, 1/48 is the perfect scale for airplane models, looks like your fuselage insignia are located just right, this is always a challenge for me.

Sweet looking Wildcat!

Great looking Wildcat. Hellcat next?


Hope so Stik,hope so…all the best!

Hi Cajun,

I had to stare at the period pictures,for those markings are not standard for a F4F-4…

Cheers my friend!

Tks AB,glad you liked it!

Tks Jim!

Have 3 Hellcats built already,my favorite is the Royal Navy one:


Nice Hellcat.

I know the Brazilian Air Force used Thunderbolts in WWII. Did the Brazilian Navy use Hellcats or Wildcats?


What’s not standard about them? My Arma 1/72 F4F-4 has almost identical markings for same period on Enterprise.

Very nice and clean!



unfortunately not,but Avengers post-war.


Tks Steve!

Love the Wildcat. She looks great!

Now ya just need a TBD-1 & SBD-3 to keep it company.

Tks Martin!
