Grumman J4F Widgeon, Venezuela Air Force
Continuing with the commemoration in 2020, of the 100 Year Anniversary of the Venezuela Air Force.

The Grumman Widgeon J4F is an amphibious military aircraft, which has served as a U.S. Coast Guard since 1941, a year later it was incorporated into the U.S. Navy.

Although there is little information on the operations of this hydroplane in the Venezuelan Air Force, it is known that only one plane was bought, and that it operated in the late 1940s. There are only a few photos of this Venezuelan hydroplane.

To build this Venezuelan version, I use the Classic Airframe model, Grumman J4F Widgeon, in 1/48 scale. Painted with acrylic paint from Model Master and decals were home-made.
