Good morning Vince,

Beautiful job on both a/c... Let me know if you are in need of a trumpeter wildcat prop... I have a couple kits - but I'm using a hamilton standard hub and blades on mine so you're welcome to the kit props if you need them... Have a great day, Mike

 

Hi Mike

Why thank you very much that's very of you.

How are achieving Hamilton hubs and blades?

Excellent job on the FM-2! As an addition (and hopefully these will help), I have these images scanned from the album of one Erwin Mott Jr. from Bridgeport, CT. We have a display with some of his flight suits from his long career spanning WWII (when he was flying these Wildcats in the Mid-Atlantic) into post war Naval Air Reserve. Enjoy.

It's been awhile since I bought them - but best as my cruddy memory is - I'm thinking that I bought a set of B-24 props off of ebay... May have to reshape a little bit here and there but nothing major and they look good to me... All my models are built based on warbirds or air racers past and present and I haven't seen any Wildcats flying on the airshow circuit with the type of prop blades provided in any of the kits...

Mike

Finally completed the FM-2 just in time for Milton Keynes model show 2022

 

As a bonus also completed my Martlet 3 as well 

 

When I get a day with nice weather I'll take some proper pictures with my real camera

 

Thanks very much for the input and following my project.

 

Happy modelling Vince
