Hobby Boss 1/48 Wildcat FM-1

  • Built: 2010
  • Aftermarket Used: Ultracast seat
  • Decals: Aeromaster

This was a lovely little kit to build, almost vice-less. As I had a F.A.A aftermarket decal sheet in the stash, I decided to build this as a British Wildcat. Working out the British equivalents to the U.S Wildcats can be a bit of a minefield, but a bit of research showed the FM-1 was called a Wildcat V by the British.

Paints used for this were Aeromaster acrylics. An enjoyable build.
