F8F  Bearcat

   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 long!!
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!  

    The wings have pre-cut control surfaces and flaps, servo pockets, and wire channels. Included is all of the balsa you will need for sheeting, a generous hardware package consisting of hardware, landing gear, and a fiberglass cowling and Lexan canopy are included as well.  Cutting for retracts is optional.  Uses Robart Retracts Model #622 with 4"wheels.

Building time:  This kit can be built in as little as 25 hours, even with limited building experience!

Flying skills required:  Average Flyer or above.
