EDK7078 1/72 Grumman Hellcat Mk.I / Mk.II Dual Combo
- Customer Reviews
Eduard are a Czech based manufacturer famed for the model accessories. They have in the last few years released a successful range of kits. Their Profipacks contain a kit with several marking options, along with a Colour Zoom etch set, Canopy Mask and a full colour instruction booklet.
This is Eduard's latest 1/72 kit and it looks like it might be one of the best kits you can buy in 1/72. The canopy can be modelled open to show off all the photo etch cockpit detail and the engine detail is excellent in this scale. The model features fine engraved panel lines and is very crisp and cleanly moulded. I think it will compare well to the much more expensive kit by Cyber Hobby, the main difference is that the Cyber Hobby kit has folding wings.
Please note there is 2 kits in this box and 2 lots of etch and 2 lots of Mask!
There are markings for 6 different planes:
3 Mk I's from the carriers HMS Emperor and HMS Indomitable and
3 Mk II's from the carriers HMS Indomitable (BPF) and HMS Khedive.
