1/144 Grumman F11F-1 Tiger (Long Nose) - Minwing

1/144 Grumman F11F-1 Tiger  (Long Nose) - Minwing
The Grumman F11F/F-11 Tiger was the first supersonic, single-seat carrier-based United States Navy fighter aircraft in operation during the 1950s and 1960s. Originally designated the F11F Tiger in April 1955 under the pre-1962 Navy designation system, it was redesignated as F-11 Tiger under the 1962 United States Tri-Service aircraft designation system.

The kit conforms to the Miniwing signature format and feel being cleanly cast and no obvious air bubbles. The panel lines on fuselage  are very finely cast and provide a good balance between finesse and detailing, the underwing lines are a little more defined but do convey a lot of detail

Decals are provided for aircraft serving in VF-51 of the Pacific Fleet.

Under wing pylons are provided, but no weapons or stores so these will have to come from your stash or Oz-Mods?
