  1. Hi Everybody. Allow myself to introduce......uh, myself. I'm brand new to this forum and i have completed exactly ONE large scale aircraft model. Presented for your review is my 32nd scale Tamiya F4U-1 Birdcage kit, built to depict the very first Goodyear- Manufactured FG-1 Corsair. I went from a gathering of pretty good, but unattributed photos, plus some excellent shots found in the AJ Press/ Kagero book on the Corsair. The closest i can narrow the time frame down to is about June of 1943. The model features Barracudacals cockpit placards and stencils, and Barracudacast resin Goodyear "Slick" tyres. Model is painted with a combination of Model Master enamels (interior), Tamiya fine white surface primer and Mr Color acrylic lacquers, Heavily adjusted for scale effect. Exterior stencils are from the Tamiya decal sheet, but the National Insignia were painted on using Mal Mayfield's Miracle Masks. Finally, i used the G-Factor Brass antenna post and pitot tube, I'm not very good with weathering, so the intent is to depict the aircraft fresh off the assembly line, out of the paint hangar. My apologies to those who've seen this model before, but if anyone has any questions i'm happy to answer them. David
