The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

F4U-1 finished


Recommended Posts

Another Corsair in the books. Painted with a combination of Testor's MM and Colourcoats. The interior is from Quinta Designs. The original a/c was very weathered so I tried not to overdo it. The decals are from Techmod and worked out very well. I hope y'all like it. :)

You have to be kidding! An all-time build record for a Tamiya Birdcage. Weathering is awesome - so very well done.

 

John is finishing a kit - and in what a way : masterful as usual - in less time than it takes me to think about which sprue cutter to use for snipping a part off its sprue :)

Well done, John 👍 !

I like the weathering, John.  Very nicely done!

Thanks Gaz!!! I tried not to over do the weathering since it's so easy to ruin a model like that. I'm pleased that you like it! :)

Wonderful result John, painting and weathering looks spot on. I don't write more about your build, not to miss the next completed one :D.

Cheers Rob

Thanks Kevin. I used a combination of lightened blue gray and some pastel chalk. Worked out okay I think. :)
