Grumman F8F-1 Bearcat, VF-3, US Navy, early 1946, Lt A.M. "Mike" Granat
The lack of wing dihedral on the Bearcat model was discussed in the coverage of Beetle Bomb. However, the wings on this Bearcat actually have some anhedral. Shame. Generally, this copy isn't up to SkyMax's usually high manufacturing standards; there's a glue fingerprint on the port wheelwell cover, and the prop was scratched. One odd thing about both of my Bearcats is that the prop is unbalanced and always tries to settle into the same place.
