Another fine seat for the FAA fans is this one for the Hellcat. As you may know, the British used a different harness from the USN and generally retrofitted that harness to the Lend Lease planes they recieved. The 'Q-Type' harness was quite different and Ultracast now provides that for the modeler with this fine seat with molded in harness. This is a direct replacement for the kit part and should be viable with any 1/48 F6F kit.

As with all Ultracast products, they are engineered to be very easy to remove from the pour stubs. Often nothing more involved than a sharp hobby knife is needed.
