Ive waited a long LONG time to see this...................a 1/32nd F7F Tigercat on my bench!!!!! I almost thought it may never come true, but HpH sure put those fears to rest. [/size]Anyone here who knows me, knows this is my all time favorite air frame, and ever since the first time I laid eyes on my big brothers 1/72nd Tigercat I was hooked.[/size] This is the newly released 1/32nd F7F Tigercat from HpH models. Its all resin, and the kit itself is very detailed with a ton of parts. I wont go into a ton of intense details about the kit itself upfront, as I have already done a full review of the kit. See here: HpH F7F-3P Tigercat LSP IBR This is going to be a long journey if I'm honest. I have resin experience and experience with HpH kits, and both of these lead me to believe that is will be an exceptionally intense and complex build. But since I have more passion for this air frame than pretty much any other out there, so it will be brought to fruition, of that you can be certain. Lets see what we have shall we? Standard fare here, Ill show some pics of the kit itself pulled from my IBR. The HpH F7F comes hollow molded in resin, and really is the bees knees when it comes to detail. The box is quite sturdy, and comes compartmentalized with all parts bagged and wrapped in bubble wrap: This will NOT be a small model when done either! The details and overall surface detail that HpH includes are really phenomenal: Engine parts and some fuselage internal detail: Its going to take a heck of a lot of weight to keep this big girl on her nose: MORE....................
Well, after a almost a year I am back. With my private pilot license in the books and now with a hiatus for me to figure out what I am doing, I thought some modelling would help relax and focus me. This build is for my father who says he will never have time for modelling again, so I get to build it for him. I will also be finishing up my F-15 build that left off a year ago with it missing a canopy but thanks to Bruce on this forum, I have had a replacement one now collecting dust while I was in school. It will be put in place so I can finally finish that kit for good. Cheers everyone and happy holidays.
