Product Information
Hobbyboss 1:48 - FM-2 Wildcat


The FM-2 Wildcat was designed and prototyped by Grumman Aircraft. More than 4,000 were built by the Eastern Aircraft Division of the General Motors Company between 1943-1945. These aircraft incorporated a lighter airframe and a more powerful engine. This meant there was a physical design difference between the F4F and the FM-2. The FM-2 had a taller vertical tail for stability to counter the increased torque of the engine. Armament consisted of 4 50 cal. guns and 2 external bomb or fuel racks and air to ground rocket launch points on the wings. These aircraft were primarily operated from escort carriers to support ground operations in the Pacific theater of operations. These same aircraft were teamed with Grumman Avengers and used in anti-sub operations in the Atlantic against U-boats.

Model Information:

This kit consists of 73 parts in light grey plastic, 7 clear parts for canopy, simple engine detail and optional cowling.

Length: 256.4 mm
Wingspan: 350.6 mm

This product was released on Wednesday 16 April, 2008.

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.
