Today I finally finished up a commission build for a friend on another Forums. This is the Dragon 1/72 scale F-6F 5N Hellcat night fighter.

This is one of nine models I finished up this week. The rest are in the armor forums.

Thanks for looking in, comments are welcome.

Bill, thanks! Yes, it had the two options: folded or extended, with separate parts for each option. My friend wanted the wings folded.

Nick, thanks for catching that. I was told the same thing on the Forums where my friend is who was following the build as well. I'll be taking care of that before I turn it over to him. I appreciate you watching out for me. πŸ‘

Chris, thanks! I sleep at night, always at least eight hours. I have to: I work with power tools and I want to keep all my fingers. 😁

Looks good Duke! I'm sure your friend will appreciate the build. It's interesting to see the night fighter version, as it's often overlooked when it comes to Hellcats!

Good one, amigo! And kudos for doing commissions. I've found they suck the fun out and would rather surprise people...on my own, extended timetable.

Thanks Bob! I do enjoy doing commissions as long as I don't have a lot of them to do at the same time. I have also surprised people with models that they never saw coming. One was a Navy nurse who was at Pearl Harbor in WWII on board the USS Mercy, and another was a stage manager for our production of "Ragtime". She got a model of a Model T Ford like the one Coalhouse drove in the show.

Thanks Kevin! I appreciate that.

Thanks to some sharp-eyed members on here and another Forums who noticed a major mistake I'd made, I took some time to get this fixed. Here is the corrected model all finished... properly now:

US_Navy_F-6F_5N_Hellcat_28CB29_FIXED_I.j

US_Navy_F-6F_5N_Hellcat_28CB29_FIXED_II.

US_Navy_F-6F_5N_Hellcat_28CB29_FIXED_III

Now that this is truly done, I'll be making arrangements for delivery here. Thanks again everyone!
