  Corgi Predators PR99414 1:72 scale Grumman Hellcat Mk1 of 800 NAS, RN FAA, based on the carrier HMS Emperor, North Atlantic Ocean 1944. Complete with optional undercarriage and canopy positions, rocket and bomb load, stand and limited edition info leaflet it really does have to be seen to be appreciated. No longer easy to find in this excellent livery.

The F6F “Hellcat” was basically designed as the “Zero Killer”. It could fly about an average 55 mph faster than the Zero and it was heavier and more powerful than the Zero. The Hellcat also had the highest kill ratio of any American fighter plane during WWII (19 to 1). US Navy pilots referred the Hellcat as the "Aluminum Tank". F6F was one of the most feared and successful planes in WWII.
