Kit Masx 48-004: F4F-4 Wildcat




Scott Van Aken


For the Tamiya kit

This set from Kit Masx is for what is now a fairly old kit by some standards, the Tamiya 1/48 F4F-4. This kit was the start of Tamiya's resurgence into plastic airplane kits after initially starting off many years before with 1/50 scale. The Wildcat can very much benefit from a set like this as its canopy and windscreen do have more panes than say, a P-51D. A nice feature of this set is that it includes both inside and outside masks. This is useful as though we often spray the interior color on the outside of the canopy before the airframe color, it still remains glossy when you look at it. This eliminates that. This set also includes wheel masks, which are always nice.

As of yet, Kit Masx does not have a web site, but you can order these direct by e-mailing You can also find a full listing on their Facebook page.
