Another of the new 1:700 scale resin and brass aircraft sets released by L'Arsenal is the mainstay of the USN fighter force in World War Two, the Grumman F6F Hellcat. Responsible for destroying more Japanese aircraft than all of the other USN fighter types combined, the Hellcat was the first USN fighter clearly superior to the Mitsubishi Zero. In service from 1943 the Hellcat was discarded soon after the war, unlike the contemporary F4U that continued to fly from carriers through the Korean War. L'Arsenal provides ten rein aircraft with brass photo-etch parts for the propeller and wheels in set AC700-07.
