Product Information
Hobbyboss 1:48 - FM-1 Wildcat


The Wildcat was the main shipboard fighter when the US entered WWII. The F4F was barrel-shaped, with angular wingtips, rudder and a narrow-track undercarriage. The F4F was well-armed, reliable and was a natural shipboard aircraft, probably easier to land on a carrier deck than on land. The F4F never had a operational speed limitation. The FM-1 was basically a F4F-4 built by the Eastern Aircraft, in its factory at Linden, New Jersey. There was one change: The FM-1 had only four guns, with ammunition increased to 430 rounds per gun. This version of the Wildcat was primarily intended for escort carriers, as the F6F was replacing the F4F on the fleet carriers.

Model Information:

Manufacturer Information

Hobbyboss are a relatively new company having only formed in the last couple of years but the rumours are they have spent a long time producing models for Trumpeter and seem to be very experienced in creating state of the art injection moulded kits. The first company to produce embedded photo etch they have caused some serious stirs in a very short space of time and they continue to make a great range of high quality affordable model kits. One to watch for the future.
