Arma Hobby General Motors FM-2 Wildcat USS Rudyerd Bay (CVE-81) 1/72 Scale

This FM-2 Wildcat from Composite Squadron 96 (VC-96) was finished in the late-war overall Gloss Sea Blue scheme.  It flew from the Casablanca-class escort carrier USS Rudyerd Bay (CVE-81) during the Okinawa campaign in April, 1945. Other than correcting the curve of the wingtips this was built out of the box.

  1. All of your FM-2 builds look great Jeff. I assume you were able to use the canopies as they came and didn’t have to resort to a vac canopy for the sliding portion?
