1/700 US Navy Aircraft from Hasegawa
Reviewed by Timothy Dike

This set has been around as long as waterline carriers. But many modelers are unaware of it's existence. It includes aircraft for a late war air wing. The aircraft in the set are:
  • Vought F4U Corsair Fighter (10 ea.)
  • Grumman TBF Avenger Torpedo Bomber (10 ea.)
  • Grumman F6F Hellcat Fighter (10 ea.)
  • Curtiss SB2C Helldiver Dive Bomber (10 ea.)

The aircraft are adequate for this scale, There was less flash in this set than in the Fujimi set and the aircraft do look like the prototypes. They could benefit from one of the many Photo Etch sets on the market today to enhance their appearance. Price for this set runs about $6.00 and it is still around at many hobby shops and mail order suppliers.
