fündekals has just released a new decal set covering the F6F-5 Hellcat in 1/24 scale, just in time for the recent Airfix kit. I have this kit and had developed plans that were quickly paused when I heard fundekals was doing this sheet. What you receive is the decal set in a protective pouch and the instructions can be downloaded from either the HobbyZone USA or fündekals website.
Subjects covered in this set include:
- F6F-5, 58574, VF-15, 10/574, USS Essex, 1944
- F6F-5, 58574, VF-83, 110/574, USS Essex, 1945
- F6F-5, 58574, VF-83, 129/129, USS Essex, 1945, 'Jersey Bounce'
- F6F-5P, VF-84, 132/132, USS Bunker Hill, 1945
- F6F-5P, VMF-351, 67/FF67, USS Cape Gloucester, 1945
- F6F-5N, VMF-511, I/92, USS Block Island, 1945, 'Butch'
- F6F-5, VF-81, 56/-, USS Wasp, 1944
- F6F-5, VF-81, 157/-, USS Wasp, 1945
This release provides an interesting glimpse at one Hellcat at three different points in time, plus five other examples to provide a nice variety of subjects for your project.

My sincere thanks to HobbyZone USA for this review sample!
