About this Plan

F6F Hellcat. Simple rubber profile scale model WWII fighter.

Planfile includes full build instructions.

Quote: "Successor to the well known Wildcat, the Grumman F6F Hellcat became a feared Jap killer during the Pacific phase of World War 2. Operating from aircraft carriers and island based landing field, the F6F spearheaded many of the famous island invasions carried out by US Marine and Naval forces.

First carefully remove all die-cut parts from balsa sheets. Lay parts on a workboard with numbers up for quick identification. Use model cement for assembling your model. This is obtainable at your local hobby dealer or chain store..."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Hello. Hope you are keeping well. Attached are plans for Guillow's DC series, all twelve of them. They are redrawn from low res plans, most of them found on now closed Yahoo group Minute Models. I belive first kit was issued in 1957."


Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

    ScaleType: This (oz12853) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grumman_F6F_Hellcat
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

Do you have a photo you'd like to submit for this page? Then email admin@outerzone.co.uk

Those kits look nice. But IMHO the best thing about them are the sappy descriptions. I had a big grin every time I read one. Cheers,

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
