Grumman F7F article from June 1957 American Modeler

Here is an example of the Grumman F7F, as presented in the June 1957 edition of American Modeler. Designed, drawn and described by Paul Plecan. "The Grumman F7F Tigercat was the first twin-engined fighter aircraft to enter service with the United States Navy. Designed for the new Midway-class aircraft carriers, the aircraft were too large to operate from earlier decks. Although delivered to United States Marine Corps (USMC) combat units before the end of World War II, the Tigercat did not see combat service in that war. Most F7Fs ended up in land-based service, as attack aircraft or night fighters; only the later F7F-4N was certified for carrier service. They saw service in the Korean War and were withdrawn from service in 1954." - Wikipedia
