FM-2 Wildcat, ex 1/48 F4F Monogram
Modifications and additions:

Generally this model was built like the version for the Pacific theatre (see there), only the colours are different (Atlantic scheme). But this time the engine cowl was scratch built (also the pilot). Front ring came from an Aurora T-6, panels from thin plastic card. Protuding panel behind cowling from thin aluminum sheet (fast food package, see HobbyBoss model).
