This is a F6F-5 Hellcat (no little window behind the canopy), but it's painted in F6F-3 colors. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/mockface.gif

Ahh man I can't slip nothing by you guys.

F6F-3 3d model is not ready yet, but the skins already are since the texture template is the same on both planes. This is just the pretties skin we have, looks more interesting than the single color -5 skins I think.

Luthier, it's all beautiful!

It's a helluva -3 skin, and a helluva -5 model!

The cowling and prop hub look particularly good.

Who did the skin?

There are other things needed than a missing window for a F6F-3, Skychimp.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


Underneath the cowling flaps there is a bulge that covers the exhausts on the F6F-3, that bulge was cancelled with the F6F-5. BTW early production F6F-5 had still that window applied.

Yeah, that stuff, and: the -5 had a different windscreen without the horizontal frame pieces at the top, and spring tab ailerons.

But the thing that really clued me in was the heater switch on the electrical panel. As you know, if it were a -3, it would be on the center panel. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I just think the bird looks awesome, the detailing looks great, and the fact that by late fall or just after we'll be able to fly it off the deck of a carrier into combat.
