1:24 GRUMMAN F6F-5 HELLCAT

Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat

Few aircraft in the history of aerial warfare can boast the impact and combat credentials of the Grumman F6F Hellcat, one of the finest fighting machines ever to take to the skies. A product of the already successful Grumman ‘Ironworks’, the company’s design philosophy was only to produce aircraft which were easy to manufacture and maintain and must be reliable in a combat situation. Importantly, it must be an effective combat aircraft and able to be mastered by the average wartime pilot following a standard conversion period. This no nonsense approach ensured that the Hellcat was ready to fight and available in some numbers when they eventually reached US Navy units in 1943.

The aviation credentials of the Grumman Hellcat are without equal and mark this rugged naval fighter as one of the most effective combat aircraft in the history of flight. The perfect combination of speed, firepower and durability, the Hellcat was the right aircraft at the right time, ruling the skies over the Pacific Theatre and becoming the mount of aces. Boasting a combat success ratio of 19 to 1, the Hellcat proved to be the scourge of Japan’s air forces.
