1/48 J2F-2 Grumman Duck

This is the Glenco 1/48 scale J2F-2 Grumman Duck representing VMF-2 that patrolled the Caribbean Ocean off the Virgin Islands. The Duck’s were used for patrolling areas and performing search and rescue of downed pilots.

The kit had very basic details so many details including the entire cockpit were scratch built. All the rigging was done with EZ-Line. The canopy was replaced with a Squadron Vacu-form version and installed open.

Many of the details can be seen in the build log: 1/48 J2F Duck
