Built this one for the group build in the topics below. It's the old Revell 1/32 kit from @1970. I rescribed it, added a few doo-dads to the cockpit, built the missing forward wheel well wall with some equipment on it, opened the cowl flaps, replaced the tail wheel, and finished it as a Wildcat on Guadalcanal in the summer of 1943. There's a build thread over on Agapemodels.com if you're interested in the in progress pics.

8/10. Knowing what you started with, good on ya. But since you asked for a critique, the panel lines are too heavy. If you stood 50 feet from the real thing, you'd not see panel lines quite that heavy.
