Cyber-hobby 1/72 scale F6F-5N Hellcat

For now, this is the go-to model kit for a 1/72 scale Hellcat, especially if you want the wings folded.

A newcomer to 1/72 scale aircraft kits, Cyber-hobby is best known for complex armor kits with lots of parts. If you like that sort of challenge, Cyber-hobby’s Hellcat is right up your alley. Molded with beautiful recessed detail, the sprues hold just about everything you could want in a Hellcat: folded-wing option, three different types of main-wheel tires, a detailed cockpit, two types of radar pods, plus bombs and rockets — the whole shebang. But a lot of the kit’s detail is hidden inside the fuselage with no removable panels to reveal it.
