VFB-88 FG-1D completed

Recommended Posts

Ready for your perusal. Tamiya 1/32 F4U-1D depicting a FG-1D of VBF-88 on the Yorktown in 1945. Armed up and ready to deliver a load of rockets to the Japanese! I added a Quinta cockpit set, resin wheels from DEF.Model and a resin seat from Quick Boost. Exterior painted with Colourcoats, interior with a mixture of Testor's yellow zinc chromate and my own mix of Interior Green for the cockpit. The numbers and letters are from my decal stash while the national insignia is partly Tamiya and partly Techmod. I hope y'all like it.

Remember to click on the 1st photo for optimum viewing and to view the pics as a slide show. (It makes a LOT of difference!)

Beautiful!  I've never attempted a folded-wing Corsair, and probably won't.  Nice job on yours, John.

Thanks Chris. I don't blame you! It does have a fairly high cuss-factor! 🤪
