The F7F Tigercat was a heavy twin-engined fighter at the end of WWII flown by the US Navy and US Marine Corps until 1954. While it was delivered too late to see combat in WWII, it was flown in the Korean War. The Tigercat was initially designed for aircraft carrier duty, with only the Midway class being large enough to accomodate it. Initial versions had problems certifying for carrier service and it was not till the later variants proved to be capable. Initially designed for a crew of 2, later variants were only operated by a single pilot.

PARTS WARRANTY - If any piece is missing from your kit, I'll get the piece to you as soon as I can. "New" pieces are used in producing custom kits. "New" does not mean mint condition. Minor scratches, etc may be visible due to parts being stored/shipped together. "New" is also the condition listed by the parts resellers I get them from. While I try to verify pieces are in good condition as I sort them for your order, sometimes pieces slip through (I do not inspect every piece with a magnifying glass.). If this happens, please contact me and we can arrange a replacement.
If your custom kit is missing a required piece, please contact me and I will be happy to replace it. Please thoroughly check the box/bags as small parts can sometimes get stuck inside larger bricks, etc.
