However, in the hands of an experienced pilot, the Wildcat could best the feared Zero and the little Grumman fighter held its own against the enemy until the more powerful Hellcat was available about a year later.

  • 35 pieces
  • Optional position landing gear and fuel tanks

Requires paint and glue, not included. Ages 14+.
