Product Description

Hobby Master Grumman F6F Hellcat , White 7 Paper Doll  Lt. Carl Brown Jr.  USS Princeton 1944     1/72 Scale . Diecast metal and limited plastic parts. HA1115

The F6F Hellcat was basically designed as the “Zero Killer”. It could fly about an average 55 mph faster than the Zero and it was heavier and more powerful than the Zero. The Hellcat also had the highest kill ratio of any American fighter plane during WWII (19 to1). US Navy pilots referred the Hellcat as the "Aluminum Tank".

The Hellcat could carry two 1,000 pound bombs with its most destructive weapons being six 5-inch HVAR's (High Velocity Aircraft Rockets). It could also carry a torpedo under the fuselage but this was never seen in combat. When it was all over the F6F was one of the most feared and successful planes in WWII.

VF-27 F6F-5 Hellcat "Paper Doll" belonged to Lt. (jg) Robert Burnell but on October 24, 1944 during the Battle of Leyte Gulf was flown from the USS Princeton by Lt. Carl Brown Jr.. Brown and other aircraft intercepted Japanese aircraft heading for the U.S. Fleet and he managed to down 5 enemy aircraft. During the battle Brown and his aircraft were hit but he managed to land on the USS Essex since the USS Princeton was ablaze. "Paper Doll" was pushed in the sea to make room for all the extra aircraft that were recovering.
