First one in 2018. Trumpeters F6F is like a Garfield - too many lasagnas caused thickness ;). To hide it i opened canopy. 
 
I used:
- Montex masks for stars
- Eduard Interior
- Techmod decals for cat mouth
- added cables and other small things.

Be careful of the toes that you step on today for they may be connected to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow.

That Hellcat looks awesome. I have to give my 2 a try. Didn't want to touch them cuz all the bad stuff about the fatness of the Trumpeter kit. But that looks pretty good
