Hellcat Target Practice WWII Drone Model kit


scale aircraft model kits from wwii


A WW2 Hellcat plane. After the war, some planes were painted orange and used as drones (pilot less) for target practice.

I saw a plane like this in the model magazine below, Finescale Modeler, and thought it would be a good project. There's no article inside, really just a single picture, but that was enough for me to come up with my own version.

It is painted Testors Gloss Orange, coated with Testors Dullcoat and then weathered. The kit is 1/48 scale. I don't remember what brand it was.
