English inbox of FM-2 Wildcat is available online. Check Tomasz R. Lubczyński review on Modelleair blog now!
Newest addition to Arma Hobby kits line-up goes against established trend. We get more plastic sprues, but also no Polish connection whatsoever. But apart from that- is it a good kit, or not? Let’s see.
“Why bother, when there is an Airfix kit already on the market?”- many comments of this nature popped out here and there when AH announced their next project in preparation. But the thing is that the kit released not so long ago by the Brits depicts the F4F-4 variant of Wildcat and Arma announced the FM-2 version produced by General Motors (similar, but powered by a different engine). Furthermore there was no decent model of the latter available in 1:72 scale so far- it’s hard to consider the Chinese easy-kit (Hobbyboss) or elusive Czech short-run kits (Admiral/MPM/Sword) as such.
