I love the paint job on this one, plus it has a great story behind it about it's last flight.

Lane, I know you want to make this one, it's RED.

I've seen this one in pics. The one I had was based on other photos that looked ORANGE to me. Maybe it was the type of film used back then, one gave a red-er image and another gave an orange-er image. I found out that Solar Tex made a nice Orange color, so, it was an ORANGE Hellcat! It just looked cool so I did it.

That link wouldn't open for me.
Current Build = BUSA 1/4 Fokker DVII
Just Finished = Meister 118" A6M3 Model 22 Zero
Future Build = Top Flite ARC F6F Hellcat

This long link and the short one below both worked for me: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=8&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiO26DEir_PAhUT02MKHVaQCjoQFgg_MAc&url=https%3A%2F%2Ffightersweep.com%2F3941%2Funmanned-f6f-hellcat-outwitted-two-jet-fighters%2F&usg=AFQjCNEChs8KinJRyNzfy2f9CWQ_zTn_lw&sig2=tlAqvYZraumuVE3a0W3XSQ&bvm=bv.134495766,d.cGc

I remember your orange Hellcat, it was awesome.

Think of all the money you'll save when you build this one, since it's a drone, you won't need a pilot. You could also use the red Solar Tex you have left over from your SE-5.

Paul, here is the one you were telling me about. My memory just caught up with our conversation.
