87269 1:72 F8F-2 Bearcat

The F8F Bearcat was a piston-engine carrier-based fighter. Two XF8F-1 prototypes were ordered in November 1943, and the first of these was flown on 21 August 1944. It was decided to utilize the most powerful engine available at the time, the R-2800 Double Wasp -- the same engine that had powered both their Hellcat and Tigercat designs. This time, the engine was fitted to the smallest, lightest airframe that could be built. This resulted in a highly maneuverable, fast airplane with a rate of climb 30% greater than the Hellcat.
