The most effective Pacific Theater U.S. fighter during the early years of World War II, the F4F Wildcat claimed an impressive aerial kill-to-loss ratio of nearly 7-to-1. Lessons learned from the Wildcat helped in the development of its successor, the F6F Hellcat, the most numerically successful Allied fighter of the entire war.
Painted in a dusty desert paint scheme, this 1/72 scale, die cast model replicates an F4F Wildcat as it appeared in North Africa in November of 1942. It features engraved surface details, a glazed canopy, a well-equipped cockpit, a rotating propeller, authentic markings, optional-position landing gear, and a display stand. Measures approximately 4¾" long with a 6¼" wingspan.
