Caracal 1/48 decal CD48087 - F7F Tigercat - Part 1 for Italeri (AMT/Esci)
The F7F Tigercat was the last piston-engined fighter of the US Navy. While it arrived on the scene too late to see service in WWII; the F7F served with distinction in Korea and several examples were used as fire bombers long after the retirement of the type from military service. Our first sheet for the Tigercat features markings for a diverse group of four aircraft.
This sheet is designed for the 1/48 scale Italeri (AMT/Esci) F7F kit. Note that the F7F2-D drone controller and fire bomber options will require modifications to the base kit.
The options on this decal sheet are:
F7F-3 fire bomber N6178C, Cal-Nat Airways Inc
F7F-2D BuNo 80349, VU-4, US Navy
F7F-3N "Linda", VMF(N)-513, USMC
F7F-3N "Nuckle Head", VMF(N)-513, USMC
