By the time the F6F Hellcat was well into production, Grumman had already begun developing a design that can replace the fighter plane. It was in 1943 when the company started to consider better avionics and a stronger airframe than the Hellcat. The project gained momentum when Grumman chief test pilot Bob Hall had a chance to fly a Focke-Wulf FW-190 and relayed the avionic information he gathered to the company's design team.

Using the data, the Design 58 concept plane was drafted. It was a rough spin-off from the Hellcat as it was also powered with the Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp engine. The differences would be more on the size and weight, which translates to better speed and maneuverability.

The prototype, designated as the XF8F-1, received contract for development on November 1943 and the first flight for the plane, re-designated as the Bearcat, was held ten months after. The F8F Bearcat received recognition especially after it was employed by the US Navy's demonstration team, the Blue Angels.



This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
