Hasegawa's 1/48 scale
Grumman F6F-5K Hellcat

by Vic Scheuerman

Grumman F6F-5K Hellcat


Hasegawa's F6F-5 Hellcat is available online from Squadron.com



Here is my Hasegawa 1/48 scale Hellcat F6F-5K as it appeared while being used for Sparrow missiles tests at Point Mugo.

This is the late scheme when Day-Glo has been applied over the Insignia Red of the lower surfaces.

The model was finished using Testor's Model Master enamels.



Model Master enamels used were:

  • Insignia Red base.

  • Fluorescent Red-Orange lower surfaces.

  • Insignia Blue (main landing gear legs and wheels)

  • Insignia Yellow (propeller tips)

  • Aircraft Interior Black (propellers and tires)

  • Brown/Aircraft Interior Black mix for exhaust

  • Matt Clear Lacquer Finish
