ACA12481 - WWII US Navy Fighter F6F-3/5

Of the 6,477 Japanese aircraft shot down by US Navy pilots in World War II, 5,156 were accounted for by the F6F Hellcat. Prior to its operational debut in 1943, the Navy Wildcats often were no match for the nimble Japanese Zero-Sen. The Hellcat, with its speed, armor and heavy armament changed all that, becoming the dominant fighter of the era. Used in reserve squadrons for many years after 1945, the Hellcats even served in the Korean War as remote-controlled flying bombs against North Korean ground targets. The F6F was armed with six 50 cal machine guns or four 20mm cannon. Two 1,000 pound bombs could be carried under the wings. Paint colors needed: Sea Blue (FS35042), Intermediate Blue (FS35164), White (FS37875), Gloss Sea Blue (FS15042), Flat Black, Flat Aluminum, Flat Metallic Grey, Flat Interior Green, Flat Olive Drab, Flat Yellow, Gloss Silver, and Gloss Gun Metal.
