Jack Devine's Giant-Scale sport-scale F8F Bearcat
R/C model kit Price: $330.00
With the Jack Devine Bearcat model,
much of the work has already been done for you. Imagine opening the box and
finding a fully-formed foam frame waiting there for you! You won't have to
imagine what your model is going to look like framed up. The frame is
done, the shape is already complete! All that's left to do is follow the
easy video instructions for capping, sheeting, and installing some hard points
like a firewall and landing gear blocks, and your model is ready for gear and
finish! Once you look at it you'll realize with a Bearcat this size just
how quickly you can be in the air compared to a stick-built model. There's
just no comparison in building time, a Jack Devine model builds faster every time!
The F8F Bearcat was developed toward
the end of WW II, and saw action primarily afterward. There were big plans
for the Bearcat, but the war ended before before many could be produced.
It was used at the start of the Korean war for multiple purposes.
Break the "Weight
Barrier" that has existed between modelers and great flying warbirds for so
The Jack Devine Giant-scale sport-scale 82"wingspan F8F Bearcat R/C model kit has super-light wingloading
and exceptional strength and durability due to Jack Devine's trademark foam
building technology. Foam building technology makes a warbird that will
FLY! And the attention to true-to scale outlines gives an added advantage
when you want to go beyond sport-scale and make it a scale project. The
Jack Devine F8F Bearcat model lends
itself especially well to scale endeavors because of the generous wing area the
full-scale Bearcat was built with. That, combined with our foam building
technology means that you can add a lot of detail and still have a plane that
flies and lands light! The best of both worlds!
It comes with our instructional video to help you
build it easily. The video guides you through the
capping and sheeting of all foam pieces, and the gearing up for hardware,
mounts, etc. Are you wondering about the processes involved? This
website also has building articles filled with a variety of tips and techniques
to help answer many of your construction questions, both now and after you start
building your Jack Devine model!
wings have pre-cut control surfaces and flaps, servo pockets, and wire channels.
