My third attempt at the F6F features some major design changes to the body in an attempt to get closer to the exact airframe design. The pilot fits quite well in the cockpit, and I am trying to figure out a better system of sliding the windows in a way the stays true to the original desing. Decals were added, and this F6F is a part of VF-10, the Grim Reapers from USS Enterprise. The Navy and Marine Corps didnt have the luxury of the bases and supply lines associated with most Army Air Force airfields, so they often found themselves flying planes at random, with the pilot taking up whatever aircraft was available. VF-10 scored 88 victories between January and June of 1944, with Richard Devine as the top scoring pilot of VF-10 for that particular deployment, with 8 kills. The Grim Reapers produced 5 aces for that tour of duty, and it was around this time that the Japanese had largely exhausted all veteran pilots, which lead to higher American kill ratios.
For this MOC, the retractable landing gear was also improved, as was the entire tail section. Overall, I'm happy with the desig!
Nice job! I really like the landing gear, I might have to borrow that someday. The kill count on the side is also a nice touch. I do have some criticism though. For one, I think you should lessen the sloping as it goes back to the tail, something just didn't look right about it so I looked up a picture. The F6F's fuselage by the tail was a little taller, I think. Also the cockpit looks a little too blocky, take a look at my friend Callans plane, "Moterscourge" (it's on my page) you might consider using his cockpit design. But overall, I still give it a five star rating.
