  1. I've been thinking it's time I built a plane again. I was going to do the Tempest but have wanted to build my favourite prop plane and Ernie's hotel build sort of tipped the balance that way. Anyways, I dug through the stash and pulled out the most disheveled kit of the three. It disheveled as I had dumped a bunch of the leftover kit and AM buys from my other two Corsairs into the box. There's several sets of paint masks, some incomplete, leftover parts, Aires bits for a Trumpeter Corsair, rubber tires. One critical bit, the main spar is assembled in the folded positio
  2. PLUSMODEL AERO line 1:32 F4U Corsair Pilot Catalogue number - AL3002 Price tag: $23,90/€16,80 Available from Plusmodel for the prices indicated below on the text Plus Model was established in 1990 in the Czech Republic. Their product range is comprised primarily of 1/35th scale resin kits, conversion sets, and accessories which are vacuum cast from polyurathane plastic (Plusmodel web introduction) A couple years now, Plusmodel was a new line called “AeroLine” with figures, details sets and others access
  3. Hello Friends of the Whistling Death, Some years ago i had the chance to take some Pictures of a F4U-1A flown by Major Gregory "Pappy" Boyington. I hope that might be of help to the many builders of that fascinating plane. I hope you enjoyed the tour. Greetings Rob
  4. By the way of introducing myself I wanted to show the mighty F4U I built some time ago. When I was young I was building all the MatchboxAirfixRevellandevensomeTamiya stuff. About thirty years later I decided to reenter the Hobby because I found it really relaxing to give my best in Modelling after hard days at work. I'm not fixed on special subjects, so I do Airplanes as well as Armour and even some Steampunk and Science Fiction Stuff and Figures and there is no special era which I prefer. A Subject has to be of some fascination esthetically, in a technical way, or just be the
  5. 1:32 F4U-1A Corsair Engine Bay (for Tamiya kit) Grey Matter Figures Catalogue # GMALB3203 Available from Grey Matter Figures for £26.40 In actuality, this new set from Grey Matter Figures isn't an engine bay set, but what it does provide is the hardware to the rear of the engine bulkhead panel, on Tamiya's new Corsair releases. Tamiya does a good enough job of the engine anyway, and of course, there is an Eduard Brassin release, should you want to go the full aftermarket route. Up until now, however, you've had to option to open things up further. Let's take a look at this set and see what
  6. 1:32 F4U-1A cockpit Eduard 'Brassin' Catalogue # 632053 Available from Eduard for €41,25 Bunny Fighter Club price: €35,06 It hasn't taken Eduard as long to release a complete cockpit upgrade for the recent 1:32 Tamiya F4U-1A Corsair as it did for the initial Birdcage variant, and I'm pretty pleased about that. Having the kit in my stash for a pending magazine project, and knowing the level of detail within the cockpit, it may seem surprising that a whole resin replacement is now available, but just wait until you see this! You really won't want to build that kit without first se
  7. 1:32 F4U-1A BIG ED Eduard Catalogue # BIG3349 Available from Eduard for €71,25 Bunny Fighter Club price: €60,56 Yes, the ‘Birdcage’ Corsair was nice, but the one we all really wanted to see was the bubble canopy variant! Of course, after a period of selling their initial tooling, the F4U-1A was released in the last months, and despite Tamiya’s reputation for moulding and engineering excellence, it sure doesn’t stop Eduard bringing out a number of upgrade and detail sets. These are now packaged in the popular BIG ED set, saving you a little money. As I write this, a new F4U-1A s
  8. 1:32 F4U-1 cockpit Eduard 'Brassin' Catalogue # 632039 Available from Eduard for €41,25 Bunny Fighter Club price: €35,06 I'm actually quite surprised that it's taken Eduard so long to release a complete cockpit upgrade for the recent(ish) 1:32 Tamiys F4U-1 Corsair, especially with the bubble-canopy F4U-1A just around the corner. Still, it's probably true to say that the F4U-1 'Birdcage' will stay popular for a long time. Having seen the kit itself, and knowing the level of detail within the cockpit, it may seem surprising that a whole resin replacement is now available, but j
  9. Has anybody heard about this yet? It's supposed to be out in November: http://www.hlj.com/product/tam60325
  10. We are working on new EagleCals for the Corsair F4U-1a, and will release them in 1:32, 1:48 and 1:72 for those interested! There are two sheets and we have just approved the profiles. Here they are in no particular order: We'll be putting them on the site soon for pre-orders, thanks! Judy - Eagle Editions Ltd.
  11. F4U-1 Birdcage Interior Detail Set Eduard Catalogue # 32 781 Available from Eduard for €14.38 Bunny Fighter Club price: €12.23 Continuing with the reviews of all the Eduard sets currently available for the Tamiya F4U-1 Corsair, we now take a look at the Interior set. This is the full interior set, #32781. There is also a "Zoom" set available which does not include much of the pre-painted panelling or most of the second fret. For the extra cost, this set is by far the better choice in my opinion. So, what do you get for your money in this one?Two frets of brass is the answer, one pl
  12. F4U-1 Birdcage Corsair Placards Eduard Catalogue # 32 795 Available from Eduard for €7.10 Bunny Fighter Club price: €6.04 Yes, another Photo etch set from Eduard for the brilliant Tamiya 1/32 F4U-1 Birdcage Corsair. This time we look at the Placards set which consists of one plated and pre-painted fret of brass measuring 70 x 39mm with 74 parts on it. As can be seen, the set includes much of the detail panels around the cockpit, some detail for the Instrument panel shroud, some engine detail and a couple of placards for the main U/C legs. If you have looked at my
  13. F4U-1 Birdcage Corsair Seatbelt Set Eduard Catalogue # 32 784 Available from Eduard for €7.10 Bunny Fighter Club price: €6.04 Yet another upgrade set for the Tamiya F4U-1 Corsair, this time we look at the seat belts. This set is made from plated and painted brass, at the time of writing Eduard had just released the fabric belts, but they were not available for review. This set comes packaged in the normal clear sleeve with card insert, containing one plated and painted brass fret and one A5 sheet of instructions printed on both sides. The brass fret measures 70 x 34mm with 36 p
  14. F4U-1 Birdcage Exterior Detail Set Eduard Catalogue # 32 344 Available from Eduard for €12.74 Bunny Fighter Club price: €10.83 Eduard wasted no time whatsoever in releasing all the Photo etch and Resin wheels for the amazing Tamiya F4U-1 Birdcage kit. This lovely Exterior set is one of those releases. I know what you're thinking right now... "The Tamiya kit is amazing, surely it doesn't need more detail"?? Yes, the Tamiya kit is a masterpiece and probably THE best engineered kit out there, in my opinion, but injection moulding does have limitations. Eduard have stepped in here to add t
  15. F4U-1 Birdcage Engine Detail Set Eduard Catalogue # 32 343 Available from Eduard for €14.38 Bunny Fighter Club price: €12.23 Eduard wasted no time whatsoever in releasing all the Photo etch and Resin wheels for the amazing Tamiya F4U-1 Birdcage kit. This lovely Engine dress up set is one of those releases. I know what you're thinking right now... "The Tamiya kit is amazing, surely it doesn't need more detail"?? Yes, the Tamiya kit is a masterpiece and probably THE best engineered kit out there, in my opinion, but injection moulding does have limitations. Eduard have stepped in here
  16. Out of the box, with the exception of the decals, some of which I'll be replacing from EagleCals' "Birdcage Corsairs: Part 2" set: The current plan is a wings-down, wheels-up, in-flight rendition using the provided stand. Thinking now about whether or not it will be piloted and having trouble waiting until August 1st to get started...
  17. Vought F4U “Corsair” Volume 1 Monograph #52 Tomasz Szlagor / Leszek A. Wieliczko Kagero Books (3052) Available from Kagero for €19,07 This is volume 1 so one or more volumes are on the cards, which is a good thing. The Corsair had a very long service life and was constantly being improved. Although there are only 96 pages, they are filled to the brim with information. There are three chapters with a Bibliography section and appendices. The whole book is very well researched without getting too deep into details. Timing is very good with the recent availability of the early Tam
  18. OK, throwing my hat into the ring here with the new Tamiya Corsair. I have wanted one of these since the day they released their 1/32 A6M5 Zero. I built that one a few years back, and was hooked! Since then, I have built their Spitfire and am nearing completion on the P-51D. I cannot wait to get started here! Not sure yet of the markings, will decide that later on. Probably a weary USMC bird though...
  19. This is what I want to build. Two different schemes of Honduran Airforce Corsairs, this means I will build two kits!
