1:32 F6F-3/5 Hellcat

The Grumman Hellcat was designed from the beginning to take back the skies over the Pacific from the Japanese Zero. Not as maneuverable as the smaller Zero, the Hellcat's speed and firepower usually won the day. In fact, with a kill ratio of 23:1 the Hellcat can claim to be the most effective fighter aircraft ever built.

F6F-3 Single-seat fighter, fighter-bomber aircraft, powered by a 2,000 hp (1,491 kW) Pratt & Whitney R-2800-10 Double Wasp radial piston engine.

F6F-5 Improved version, with a redesigned engine cowling, a new windscreen structure with an integral bulletproof windscreen, new ailerons and strengthened tail surfaces; powered by a 2,200 hp (1,641 kW) Pratt & Whitney R-2800-10W (-W denotes Water Injection) radial piston engine
