Hellcats and Corsairs of the Naval Reserve


1/48 scale

HyperScale is proudly sponsored by Squadron.com




With special thanks to Dana Bell for bringing these little known markings to light, we're proud to announce that what started out as a small project covering some F4Us of the Naval Reserve turned into a much bigger project covering both F4U-1D/FG-1Ds and F6F-5s.

Many references have claimed these 1946-47 era markings were orange, but thanks to Dana's research, we now know they were in fact yellow.

Each air station interpreted the specifications a little differently, but all of them are quite eye-catching, with the large yellow markings on Gloss Sea Blue camouflage.

The sheet will cover literally the entire expanse of the continental United States, from New York to Livermore, and Squantum to Seattle!

Printing now in 1/48 scale, and available soon. Stay tuned here and our on our web site at www.fundekals.com

These will be available from www.fundekals.com and selected retailers!

Thanks to fundekals for the information and images.
