  1. panel wash done, as usual with a selfmixed oilpaint wash DSC_0005 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0006 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  2. decals done the nosering number and fuselage side number 1F1 are a bit oversized, compared to the original planes the wing roundels are from the MDC Corsair decal sheet, easier to work with than the 3-piece roundels from Berna DSC_0001 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0002 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0003 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0004 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr

  16. used AK Real Color Air Superiority Blue for the cockpit DSC_0001 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  17. Only ordnance my dad will do are bombs. The kit rockets and mounts are one piece. Found some rocket mounts with rails (which you see too on French Hellcats) in the sparesbox. Can´t tell from which kit they are, possibly a P-51. For chipping, my dad sprayed some metal and some primer on. DSC_0002 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr and finally the blue camo, done with Gunze H54 Navy Blue and a bit of normal blue DSC_0001 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  18. Thought that AU-7 and F4U-7 looked the same on the outside, completely missed that the AU-1 had no chin air intake. There was also a 17F15 F4U-7, the BueNo of that aircraft is included in Revell kit. Gonna try to remove the AU-1 number and replace it.
  19. Thanks! 129378 was an AU-1, found two pics of the original aircraft and also according to the US Navy BuNo list this aircraft was an AU-1. As mentioned my dad will apply the F4U-7 133683 decals from the Revell kit. That aircraft had the same Flotille number 17.F.15. Found no pic of this one but it is included in this book by a French Author. The book seems well researched and it has profiles of both 17F15 aircraft, the AU-1 and the F4U-7. https://www.abebooks.com/9782913903289/Corsair-30-Years-Filibustering-1940-1970-2913903282/plp French Corsairs are a bit confusing. Often several Corsairs wore the same Flotille number, AU-1 and F4U-7, during the years. He already removed the AU-1 decals and applied some new blue paint. The correction should be finished in a few days.
  20. thanks! Aaaahhh, you´re right. Only read that they had different engines but completely missed the different cowls. Well, there was also a 17F15 F4U-7 with BueNo 133683. This number is included in the Revell kit. Gonna try to remove the AU-1 BueNo and apply the -7 one.
  21. #2/2022 After the P-40K, my dad has already finished the next bird in 2022. Revell boxing of the Hasegawa F4U-7 kit, decals from MDC(Model Design Constructions) and the kit, wheels from Reskit, camo done with Gunze H54 Navy Blue mixed with a touch of blue, EZ line for antenna wires and brake lines, scratchbuilt weapon switches on the IB cover, late style K-14 gunsight taken from a Hobbycraft F8F, "T" shaped antenna on the belly from the sparesbox, triangle antenna on the spine done with plastic sheet because the kit´s one was too small, belly whip antennas with plastic rods. The French Corsairs in the Maghreb usually had a bomb rack on the belly too. But didn´t find a good close-up pic to recreate it. Build thread here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235101163-guerre-dalgérie148-vought-au-1-corsair-aviation-navale/ The French navy made some good post WW2 use of the Corsair, AU-1 and F4U-7, using them in Indochina and North Africa. Model shows an aircraft that served with Flotille 17F during the Algerian War from 1954 to 1962 and the Tunisian conflict in July 1961.
