Airfix 1:72 Grumman Martlet Mk.IV - Model Kit

At a time when the Royal Navy were desperately in need of an effective single
engine fighter, the new American F4F Wildcat was seen as the ideal solution and
was immediately pressed into service. Known as the Martlet in Fleet Air Arm
service, this diminutive aircraft was used operationally right through to the
end of the war in Europe.

The Fleet Air Arm introduced the American produced F-4F Martlet (Wildcat) to
combat in WWII a full year before the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor. One of
the most distinctive features of this diminutive fighter was the narrow track
undercarriage, which had to be manually deployed by the pilot. With a crank
handle placed on the right hand side of the cockpit, the pilot would have to
switch to holding the control column in his left hand and crank the retraction
handle thirty times with his right hand, in the seconds immediately following
take off.
