Yup. I knew the designation had an "F", "M", a dash, and a "3" in it, just forgot the sequence!I'll edit the other post so no one will ever know!! Though it does seem seem odd that the sequence this late in the war would be "F3", since that was the era of the "biplane Wildcat" (Gulfhawk?). Seems like F8M would be better. Could your and my "authoritative" books have misprinted the "3" and it should be an "8"??Oh, here is a picture of an F3F. Notice that the cowl's red paint is VERY splotchy and streaky, as if applied with a brush. Now I won't feel so bad if my hand-painting is a little streaky.
QuoteAimodel made a vac-form of the He-119, and currently Planet Models makes it, too, in resin. Neither had the floats. I am not aware of any other manufacturers of the He-119.
