The F6F-5 featured several improvements including a more powerful R-2800-10W engine, embodying a water-injection system and housed in a slightly more streamlined engine cowling, spring-loaded control tabs on the ailerons, and an improved, clear view windscreen, with a flat armored-glass front panel replacing the F6F-3''s curved plexiglass panel and internal armor glass screen.

Richard,
Another one of your excellent in box kit review of the Eduard F6F-5 Late ProfiPACK edition. It's on my ever growing must have list.

I just started Eduard's Jugs over Italy Limited edition kit and I was just blown way with all the extras from resin, PE, and Cartograf decals.

Hi Joel,
I've built the Jugs over Germany kit and just sent in some photos for consideration to Jessica. You will love this kit! It one of the best I've ever made. Good luck and enjoy! Take care. Jim

Jim,
Looking forward to seeing your pictures of the Jug. I've spent the better part of 3 days so far on the cockpit adding a little more details here and there. I ended up moving the cockpit light as the maintenance manual has it on the opposite sidewall then it's molded on. I moved it and then wired it, only to find pictures with it on both walls. Go figure.
