  1. Hello Dears Here I'm back The engine will be weathered, and I also worked on this one Have a very nice week end. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  2. Hello dears, Here we go to justify my alias. I'm found of bent wings birds and there is some of her on my shelves. I was very glad about the arrival of the trumpeter's Corsair serie, so I started one of it as soon as I've bought it. And picked up one of my Academy for a joint project. The Trumpeter interior is quite fine, the Academy is well... forget it I added the fabric seatbelts on the Trumpeter, the one and only fabric seatbelts I've used. It is wonderfull but nerve raking, this thing has also his own life The Academy interior is replaced by an Aires one. As one can see, Trumpeter is also a putty addict, as it is very oftenly the case, if you shut down all that has been designed to be opened, get some putty... The trumpeter engine is pretty good, but the exhaust stacks are coming from a Ford Anglia, such a thin pipe will be a welding torch at best when a PW 2800 is blowing in.. The Academy will receive an Aires P-2800 One of the biggest flaw of the trumpeter Corsair is her smile, I've tried putty and plasicard but did'nt like the result, So the kitchen table surgeon is back at the Helm. I picked up my Hasegawa F4U-4, take a mould of the cowl and duplicated it and Taatzaaaam ! The propeller is also to be rectified but still easy. Here's a view of the complete mess. And To be continued... Thank for watching. Corsaircorp
  3. Hello Dears Glad to share that poppies are back in my garden, did'nt plant it. Grewin'up in between the stone for my would be wall ! Restart the camera comprtment for the PR XI Beside her is the engine for my F4U-4 Take care and have a very nice week end ! Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  4. Hello Dears, In a previous thread, one can see that there is an Eduard Spitfire Mk VIII that is on the painting bench. As every time, Idid'nt finish a kit yet and I Wonder about the next one, time for me to start my Spitfire PR XI. So this one will represent the Spitfire Mk VIII of Clive "Killer" Caldwell and will be in a RFI in a few weeks. But as I told it before, I've got this one too The fuselage is quite good, engraved and dimensions are almost right, see, Nearby 2 mm to add on the very end of the nose, here, I Wonder if I will cut and modify the Otaki wing or using an Eduard one, whatever I choose, I must modify the wing... Here are some resin parts, made years ago from various donors, including a Tamiya Mk V I cleaned the original Otaki interior and began the surgery: And now, let's verify the Murphy's law Will St Eduard give us a good PR XI ?? Now that I've started my conversion ??? I've worked on some other projects this evening, will have 2 RFI in a few days, Sailors Aircrafts obviously Thank for watching. Sincerely. Corsaicorp
  5. Hello Dears, Here I'm back again, first modelling evening, I was like a kid in a toy store. Not very productive but funny. First, here's a surprise from mother nature Those are stones for my would be wall, and I get a poppy ! Very glad about it, they are back in my garden I open the cooling vent on the boom More to come soon. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  6. Look, I've started a P-38 from Monogram at a time, that the Monogram was the only girl to date Then in 2015 or 16, I bought this one As Mrs CC has always told me, that if I die first, she will throw away my whole collection ( almost 500 plus transkits, decals and so on...) I told her that, she will have been wiser to throw the whole pack on E b, she saw prices on some boxes and then ... The guy who buy kits from my collection can have such a surprise... 2 for the price of one plus bonus track And yesterday !! I was looking at Spadgent new built and Tilt !! it sparked this The Monogram was good, must be engraved and wingtip modified but look... Dimensions are right, no brainstorming for guessing what this one will be Will find cool decals for her and some resin parts are gone to the plusplastic park. Cloning,Dodson ! nice hat, you played spy ?? The Academy will be this one As I get the opportunity years ago to buy 5 monogram Lightning (Of course, there is 5 versions available on the same box) It was a toy shop that failed, it was a friend, it was not a gift but not any far from it. I was back home with 5 P-38, 3 P-47, a B-26, an A-26, a F4F and 3 F6F, smuggled at night , since the pill was a little big too hard to swallow for lot of spouses I think. Then, I will make this one I'm a great fan of Robin Olds, so Scat is in my challenges, I have at least 4 differents Scats wich are waiting in my attic. I also have this one available for a swap, don't remember why I've bought these.. Viking 2 may be... but I will make a conversion for one of the first british lightning Ok, it was not a warhorse but the sleekest of the P-38 for sure... Look at the differences Monogram 1966, just a few years younger than I am Eduard 2013, Who will dare to say "It was better in my years ???" Rough and dirty will be fun too, I like the pin up So now Rammstein mode.... Benziiiiine and let's go a L and a M Thanks for watching. It's not my fault Sir, I know I start, no please restart, it's not the same !! Convict Spadgent ! You're free, Corsaircorp's complaint is irrelevant. Have a nice day, I start my evening work week, no many modelling next days. Take care, see you soon. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  7. Hello Rob and Navy bird, I take the risk to be fired down, but I've helped my father when he did suffer from a throat cancer. So I just share an information, since, Sylvia, my wife make lots of researches for our well being. Here's the link from a doctor There is lots of video but this one is the entry door, take the time to listen, or not Do not matter the title is in french but the video is English spoken. All those treatments can sure help, but there is another way, Now one can blame me, but that will not change my mind. whatever, it'is a tiny gift, then you'll follow your way. With all my prayers and good vibes. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  8. Hello Rob, Very good job on the Spitfire's I really like it. I agree a 100% with the above posts, Your friend has to be helped the way you do it ! And thank also to Navy Bird, he is right and brave. A pretty good lesson of life ! Congrats men ! Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  9. Hello Spad, I'll follow the H (arry) P(otter) thread, that will be instructive and... well let's say fun. My daughter is a great fan of HP, she saw it on your post and was asking me if there is kits for Potterhead ?? I don't feel ready to make one for myself When you say little but big, my first thought was for a 1/72 B-52 or a B-36 Peacemaker But the 0/400 fill the job too. I'like to see the P-38 finished, very nice job. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  10. Yes Giorgio, it's that one ! Prefer not remember how much I drinked years ago very impressive work to your UC and firewall, old guitar string this is the kind of brilliant idea. Will not forget it I use metal wire wrapped with some textil stuff, normally, it is used for flower decorative, one can paint it easily ! Very flexible and easy to use but guitar string, good stuff too. I think that I did'nt throw away the old strings from my son's Fender ! Thank for the tip, mate Sincerely Corsaircorp
  11. The Mc Chouffe is my favourite, La Trappe, incredible, even in Belgium this one is hard to find ! You're my kind of man ! Congratulations ! Don't know if there is some Leffe Radieuse ! Nick named Tchernobyl since radieuse and strong. Blue Chimay is my modelling beer, I mean more oftenly used ! Congrats again for the Macchi and your fine taste ! On the blond side, try the Triple Westmaele, also a trappist. Have a nice modelling day. Sincerely. Corsaircorp.
  12. Hello Rob, Sorry, but I'm not so present these days, evening work week in real life. I use some silicon and then PU resin. It is easy to do but you have to be precise whe blending the components. I can show you, there's no problem about that, I already did the same at my local club. Sincerely. corsaircorp
  13. Hi Giorgio Leffe Triple !! Good choice Sir, Glad to see that a tiny part of the place where I live is present in your country !! Did you also have the 4 Chimay, and the 2 Rochefort. Give a try to the triple Westmaele, tasty, refreshing and ... well serious ! Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  14. Hello Giorgio, Still a pleasure to catch up on your WIP, I really enjoy your attention to details Good job on the piping and I really enjoyed seeing your yard. And the BBQ Very nice job. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  15. Yup John, I agree with a tiny reserve, I was in Ramstein AB on the 28th of August 1988, only one of them broke the rules. We know the result, I met them again in Coksijde years later (first time they were welcomed back outside of Italy) And they agree with my conclusions, it was the selfishness of just one man ! Otherwise they are very nice guy, making a very dangerous job ! And we had a memorable party in Coksijde, closing a painfull door for me. Wonderfull job on these 2, Giemme, keep carry on. sincerely. corsaircorp
  16. Hi JB I use that compound for the "would have been clear parts" from short run kits. I'll give a a try with tooth paste, it is more abrasive than one can think. You better choose the cheaper one, or special whitening one ( the taste did'nt matter ) and the late Lemmy was toothless just as I'm for this while. And then a go with Tamiya compound. The automotive industry has also some compound used as scratch remover. But be carefull some of it are very agressive. This what I'll try before to use the old trick of the mechanic cleaning up the glasses with a biiiiiig towel. You can mimic that towel with the other old trick of the cigarette paper soaked with water and white glue. Have a very nice day, sure that you will get through this one just as you did with the P-38 ! Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  17. Hi JB, Did you have tried the toothpaste on a cottonswab ? Or some tamiya liquid compound ? Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  18. Hey ViiK, I just found the thread now, not too late to have a great paint scheme for this one Here it is, What do you think about ?? You did great, I really like it, will find one at 1/48 but seem not easy to find and equally not easy to build. If you don't mind, I'll follow in a corner almost quietly... Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  19. Sooooo, Come on Johnnyxander the great ! Ask for thyself another Kingdom... Geeeenius ! I like that one ! Very nice job on the wheels You're the one that cannot feel "the loneliness of the long distance runner" since there is a lot of followers I'm also a fan of Eddie, look, My favourite is the X factor ! Congratulations, Did the Maiden beer taste good, not tried it yet ?? Have a very nice day ! Sincerely Corsaircorp workin' on the highway for 4 more evening !
  20. Hello PC I agree totally with TonyT, Gee, what a pair of kids Winston and Douglas ! As a fan of Roland P. Beamont, Roland has to be considered too !! may be for your Protoprocopius Mk II ?? I send you a lot of good energy, hope that you'll be back soon with your techniques and your humor. Keep the faith man ! Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  21. Hey, Did'nt this one, very curious about hearing a Me 262 with 004 turbines !! Fulmar and Skua !! Lord that will be fun too as per the Fw 190 with 801 ! I've been Lucky enough to listen to all the other Wonderfull sight and sound, the Sunderland takin' off from the Lough Derg in Ireland ! A low pass, Kermit was weavin' us good bye and... No more flying hedgehog in Europe Thank for sharing. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  22. Nice choice too, congrats ! However, I prefer "Cortez the killer" by Greg Allman and Warren baines, live in New York A piece of anthology ! Old School .... Another brick on the wall of my feeling of grewing older Sincerely Corsaircorp
  23. Hello Ian, Waow, very good job, I really like it ! Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  24. RIP Chris Cornell, I like Soundgarden and his différents alias ! Yesterday, I found back the Dropkick Murphy's (Why did'nt they choose Dropkick Guiness as a name ??) Green fields of France is really a good song... Not as good as 1916 by Motorhead but, really close to it I also found an Irish song... F... You I'm drunk !!! And I'll be drunk 'till the next time I'm drunk, no lies !! they really sing that ! Good remenberance of my time spent in pub like The Saleen not far from Cork ! Dinkin' and singin' a revised versio of "The boxer" Laughin' about the sad story of that poor F... Guinea pig ! Not very clever for sure but we had some great alcoholic pieces of heroism ! Have a very nice day, I'm going to work on the roadsides, AA job though one ! PS AA is not for Anonymous alcoholics ! Take care , see you later. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  25. Congratulations Antoine ! Glad for you. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
