The F4F Wildcat was an aircraft of the type of which legends are made. Without the handling performance that made the Japanese Zero so famous, it was well regarded for its ruggedness and firepower and, in the hands of a skilled pilot who understood both its strengths and weaknesses, it was capable of holding its own against the best that its opponents had to offer. This book details projects that encompass four variants of the F4 Wildcat. As they were supplied to a number of air forces during the war, including the RAF, there is a wide range of markings available to modellers which are also dealt with in detail. Covering a range of modelling abilities from a beginner's first build to an expert scratch-building extras, this book is illustrated with full-colour step-by-step photographs.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The author has taken a somewhat different approach to this edition. Not to say that the usual is not there, but he has added some things that many may well find of value. Overall, a well done book and a fine addition to the Osprey Modelling library." --Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (October 2007)

"Osprey's Modelling series shows how advanced modelers use their knowledge, skills and expertise to create incredibly and correctly detailed models of all sorts... Each book discusses how a variety of model kits are used to make authentic looking WWII vehicles... If you are looking for books that provide the high detailing to take your miniatures to the next level, you should check these books out." --Michael Koznarsky, Historical Miniature Gamer (Issue 11)

"Military libraries will welcome Osprey's line of detailed guides... Mark Glidden's Modelling the F4F Wildcat tells of an aircraft renowned for its ruggedness and firepower and offers up four modeling projects for Wildcat variants which aviation modelers will appreciate." --California Bookwatch (December 2007)

"It has good explanations, and excellent photographs, of the steps taken to build the models that are included. If you are a Wildcat fan, this is a nice basic guide for building some common, and some unusual, variants. If you are an aircraft modeler, there are some neat extras in the book that make it a great resourse. Personally, I enjoyed the book and wouldd recommend it highly." --Keith Pruitt, International Plastic Modelers' Society
