    Tamiya F4U-1D build

    All done with this one. You just can't beat the Tamiya Corsairs for enjoyable builds. I had intended to build this one as a Navy bird (hence the folded wings) but changed my mind to do a Marine a/c at Okinawa. After market items are Barracudacast wheels and cockpit placards. Otherwise it's OOB. I used masks to paint the national insignia but other markings are decals. The GSB is Model Master Glossy Sea Blue enamel. I didn't to go overboard with weathering but I tried to do at least some (but not too much!). I hope y'all like it! Oops! I guess this should go in RFI. Will the mods please fix that? Thanks!
  2. Looks like a really nice kit!

    Thanks Peter. Painting and decaling are completed so now it's weathering time. I don't plan to do a lot of weathering. Should be finished in the next couple of days. I really look forward to seeing your Corsair come together.

    Captured F4U question

    Great info! I wish we could find the story behind the crash landing of this Corsair, #61 off the Shangri La, and what happened to the pilot.

    Thanks. Not a bad idea about posting pics of all my Corsairs. Stay tuned!

    Okay. Rested enough and back to it and I've decided to do a different a/c. Stay tuned.

    Not just yet. I might just decide to give the whole deal a rest for a while.

    Tamiya F4U-1D build

    I have decided to put this one aside for a bit. Never thought that'd happen with a Corsair! At any rate, I think I'll move on to something else and come back to this one a little later (but not TOO much later!). Stay tuned.

    Captured F4U question

    Not likely guys but you never know.
  13. I'm wondering if any of you have info as to the circumstances, etc around this VBF-85 Corsair from the Shangra La captured by the Japanese. I would think it would be very interesting. I have seen other photos, before and after, but haven't really seen any info.
