Quickboost 1/72 F4F-3 Wing Conversion

Hasegawa 1/72 kit


Scott Van Aken

This particular upgrade part is designed for the Hasegawa 1/72 Wildcat. Though one of their early boxings was an F4F-3, the modeler had to do some filling to make the proper wings. Even then, things were a bit off. This upgrade, combined with some other bits will allow one to make a proper F4F-3 using their kit. Since most of the early war USN Wildcats were this variant, it is surprising that this version has not yet gotten its own kit. These will not fit the new Airfix kit as the way the wings are attached on that kit are quite different.

Purchased by me for your enlightenment.
