Hellcat Mk.II – part 4

Just a quick update. I painted the canopy frame black, and then the plane got a cote of primer. I also primed the fuel tank.

The prop was also painted.

I’ll give the prop a clear cote in preparation for the decals.

There’s a few seams that need to be sorted before I can continue painting the camo. The colours needed are sent and I expect to recieve them soon.

I turned out that the included rockets are different versions of HVAR rockets which are american, but FAA used british RP3 rockets instead. They look alike but have a rail that isn’t included in the kit.
I feel my options are to either omit the rockets or just paint them like the british ones and just pretend it’s okey. In my mind it looks cooler with than without rockets.
