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

F4U-1 Birdcage up next


Recommended Posts

Time for another Birdcage Corsair! :) The Tamiya kits are a pleasure to build and that's what I need at this point. I'm not certain as to which a/c this will be but I am considering a FAA bird if I can find decals for it. Not set in stone but we will see. :)

Cockpit sub assembly about done.

If I decide to make this one a FAA bird I'll likely have to find some decals for the roundels and codes in my decal stash. I'd rather get a dedicated decal sheet like Eaglecals #EC152 but so far I haven't been able to find it. We will see how it goes! 🙄

Spectacular IP. This is starting in the right direction.

Thank you. :) The Tamiya Corsairs are really first class kits and build up to be very nice models.

Out of all of the Tamiya Corsairs you have built do you by chance have the national insignia
decals with the red border, from the F4U-1A kit, left over in your spares box?  I could use them if you do.

Tried to PM you a message but it says JohnB cannot receive messages. ???

I feel sure I have them. I'll check and PM you. I don't understand what the deal is about receiving PM's. I'll have to check it out.

Great work John. Hopefully you can find the decals you need. 

Thanks Carl. Jerry is in luck as I have the needed decals. Always happy to be of help. :)

Hey John, if you need the numbers, I have it

It’s the bottom aircraft on Eagle Cals EC152  set  That’s all I have is what’s in the photoIMG_1049.thumb.jpeg.c61b621ba14ac897155c6a86a19a2745.jpeg

 

That's the one I was figuring on doing. I'll send you a PM. THANKS!

But I like that color something different for sure John.;)

Yes it is! I have the green applied on the uppers and will apply the grey next. We'll see how that looks. I'm sure it'll be quite different from the "usual"!

Since I changed subjects in mid build I had to change out the top cowling flap piece to reflect the correct layout. Luckily I didn't break anything! :)
