Here are a few pics of my latest.

Tamiya base kit with clipped wings and a few other modifications to make a FAA bird that operated on HMS Unicorn in 1944.

Beautiful plane and nice finish. It's good to see a Corsair in a not so typical scheme. Having built one myself I can tell that these Tamiya Corsairs are really fun to build.

Cheers Rob

Really nice result. What conversion did you use for the cropped wing tips?

None....  I cemented to supplied wing tips into place and when properly dry I marked the cut with some tape to guide it and razor sawed the end off.  I then placed a roughtly shaped piece of clear plastic into place for the wing tip light and sanded the whole tip into shape.  I bit of scribing and all was done.... It is easy enough to do.

Nice one Barry, I really like the FAA Corsairs. Very nice that the Tamiya wingtips are solid so they can be clipped. Simple and easy.

Cheers

Nice colourful machine, what colour paints did you use for the top camoflage surfaces? Thanks for sharing Oz

These were MRP Paints, their MRP 114 Extra Dark Sea Grey and MRP 117 Dark Slate Grey topside with MRP 118 Sky bottom.
