Welcome to Large Scale Modeller: The home of the large scale military model builder.

Yep, ANOTHER CORSAIR!

Recommended Posts

As most of you already know I am a big fan of the Tamiya Corsairs and have build 9 so far. I just never get tired of these very pleasurable builds. As I am waiting for some masks to show up for my Peefartybee I decided to go on and build Ken Walsh's -1 using Barracudacals. As I had already built the engine back in December while I had some time on my hands and was trying to decide on what to build next I'm ahead of the game on this one. :)

I think I'll have salmon for dinner...

Great start, John. 
Definitely not a Corsair guy, but I really like the look of the early birdcage hose noses.

John, you might as well tell us what you're gonna start on this Sunday, because this'll be done by then.

They certainly do have a certain appeal. Thanks! :)

Hey John, slightly off topic, but have you ever built Pappy Boyington's bird? 

No I haven't.

I still refer to the instructions to be sure I don't forget something. Easy to do at my age! :)

Hi John

Geez, what a surprise and I really am glad to see you digging into another Birdcage. I have no doubts you will blow right by me as I'm working a a snails pace these days but love following all your builds especially Corsairs.

Actually I just posted an update, as all the priming is now done and then disaster struck. I went over it in the update and am hoping my fix works r I'm dead in the water.

Keep 'em comin

Peter

It always seems to be SOMETHING doesn't it Peter. I try to be extra careful nowadays as I'm a lot more clumsy than I used to be. I posted a reply on your thread. Hope it helps.
