The Great LSP Twins Group Build Starts Jan 24, 2024 - End July 3, 2024 ×

Recommended Posts

Another Tamiya Corsair for the collection. VMF-351 off of USS Cape Glouchester escort carrier at Okinawa 1945. After market items are Barracudacast wheels and cockpit details. The FF51 decals are MicroScale and the one kill marking is from my decal stash. All the other decals are from the kit. Painted with MM GSB with a over spray with Alclad semi-flat. Quite a enjoyable build as are all the Tamiya Corsair kits! I hope y'all like the results of my efforts. :)

Very well done, John.  Gonna need your own carrier, soon.  Better build more USMC stuff.  They're happy with a little chunk of coral.

Thank you Gaz. I'm glad you like it. :)

Don't you have to remove 50% of the paint though ? The pictures of them always look sand blasted .🤣

A lot of the island based Corsairs suffered from bright sunlight and sand which was tough on the finish. Carrier based didn't have that problem.
