If you don't know by now, NightBall06 is a big Hellcat fan. He's done a number of computer assisted sketches this year, and here's another with some new additions. There's some detailed side-by-side with the original source image that gives you a clear sense of what the inspiration was, how close things are and where there's some slight artistic license. Based on the popular theory that the Confed Wildcat and Hellcat share a common lineage, he's based a few aspects on this "updated vintage" methodology. There's also a cool top/bottom plan view that's reminiscent of some of the Tiger's Claw original ship drawings.
I think this one belongs here too... A sideview/topview comparison that helped me to remain on course... It contains some minor updates (I also updated the image from before) especially at the rear engine part and the „little nose scanner“.
