Eduard’s F6F-3 kit is great and fully detailed but Eduard just made it even better… New set 48588 contains parts to show the mighty Hellcat’s gun bay. Inside small recognizable Eduard’s small plastic bag is packed three pages instruction and one Photo Etched fret containing 50 numbered parts.

Fully detailed gun bay’s with ammo boxes and bullets as well as wing structure are provided in this set. Eduard suggests using Aires 4241 Browning M 2.50 cal wing mounted machine guns as they are not provided in this set.

Eduard included off course gun bay panels and they look excellent when mounted on the kit.
Question is, can I recommend this set to the inexperienced modeler, and my answer is Sure I can. This set is very easy to work with as all the “hard work” you need to do is to cut two panels and the rest is bending and gluing the top quallity photo etched parts.

Using this set in combination with 48585 and 49411 set from Eduard gives you a great opportunity to make a master model from an excellent Eduard Hellcat kit.
Who knows I wouldn’t be surprised if Eduard soon release one of those Big Ed series for their Hellcat kit.
