Today I want to present to you my finished F4U-1A Corsair Diorama.

The work in progress pics are here:  

I had the idea for a propaganda-scene when I came across the figure of a cameraman from the US Navy of WWII in 1/35 and the Black-Sheep VMF-214 wooden sign in 1/32 scale from King&Country.

The figures are a pilot out of the Kit, a director and a mechanic and a woman soldier of the Navy Medical Corps adoring the kill-marks on the plane.
Especially the Ultracast figure of Boyington is beautifully sculptured.

The airfield plates are from Brengun and the turnable plate from IKEA. The palms are handmade and come from a German Diorama Accessoires supplier. 

Thanks for looking.

Great display of skills and talent. Love the little scene, which tells a story. The weathering is spot on and seeing the surroundings, absolutely believable.

Cheers Rob  

Thanks Rob. This is a compliment which makes me proud.


It’s always my aim to create a scene which tells a story and creates a realistic surrounding.

Awesome diorama and with a great theme. The Corsair easily depicts the  the harsh south pacific weather and just love those figures. Sure wish I could paint figures but I've failed so many times over the years

Keep 'em comin

Peter

 

Thanks for your feedback Peter!

Painting the Corsair was a real challenge  and I learned a lot regarding airbrushing and other weathering techniques. It was also the first model on which I used my H&S Infinity Airbrush. Since then it’s my reliable tool. You can really do everything with it.

Figure painting is not that difficult. Maybe you can try it once again when building the He-219...

Amazing build, love the story portrayed here!  I am also very impressed by your weathering on this one, especially the chipped paint on the wing roots following the rivet lines and the fuel stains on the fuselage from the filler cap on the nose.  Can I ask how you achieved those effects?  

 

Stunning work!
