Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat, White 59
Collectibles. A very nice earlier version of the Matchbox Hellcat. The gloss paint looks great, and the white insignia is generally well applied. The exhaust effects and flash-burns on the guns are especially good. However, the cowling is not quite as midnight-blue as the paint, so it comes off looking very plastic, which, of course, it is.
