Wildcat vs Curtiss 75

Yes Don:
The Troskies are really nice and relatively easy to reduce due to their design of a single piece fuselage/ruder (most of them), wings and ailerons. It also helps their overlapping tabs common to some paper model designers from Japan. Unfortunately at 1/400 most of their wonderful artwork is lost. Nevertheless, I am happy for the variety of topics, mostly WWII.

Here is a US Navy Wildcat foe. They clashed during Operation Torch. The score according to Wikipedia: 15 Hawk vs. 7 Wildcats lost. Tactics, exhaustion or just more US Navy planes?
