Brengun 1/72 F6F Fuel Tank
By Matt Bittner
The Eduard 1/72 F6F is considered the best Hellcat in the scale. While it has its own injected fuel tank, I thought it the weakest part of the kit.
The Brengun 1/72 F6F Fuel Tank consists of the resin tank and a fret of photoetch. The photoetch contains the straps that go around the tank as well as the fuel filler cap. The instructions want you to create your own supports for the tank out of stretched sprue. The photoetch supports wrap around the tank and the fuel filler cap is placed on a demarcation on the tank.
I've built the Eduard F6F and it definitely is a great kit but with a fuel tank - out of the box - that let me down. This Brengun release will definitely look better than the kit's offering.
I definitely want to thank Brengun for sending the review sample.
