And so it begins!!! I've been looking forward to this build for the last month, which has meant the Tiger that was but days from completion became homeless, and I have become restless. Now, however, I can happily assault one of the old, evil, original Airfix lineup. I picked up this kit about 5 years ago on a whim having built it (not terribly) when I was a sprog and after rediscovering my handiwork on top of a cabinet at my parents. This prompted a random purchase and some serious thought about what to do with such an old and generally spotty kit. Cue White Ensign! I was fortunate to get the PE set. At the time they had advised there may be no hope of my obtaining it from them, but a week later a letter stuck to an envelope arrived and behold! a ton of valuable PE to make this old dinghy resemble a Battleship. As to whether I'll do it justice, I have no idea. Plenty of experience with PE but never stuff this fine, and a requirement to use brushes as my Aztek seems to have sprung a fail, may cause more frustration than building OOB, but I am up for the challenge! To steal a line from a well known videogame series - let's do this...
Hi everyone! I'm currently building a 1/72 Corsair by Tamiya & applying all paint with the hairy stick. Will be doing my -1D in the tri colour scheme like above. Tailplanes joined onto both halves Interior painted interior green (Vallejo 'Flat Yellow' & 'Flat Green' in a 2:1 ratio) & sidewall detail painted black. Seat & rear bulkhead painted Rudder pedals have been drybrushed with aluminium paint to simulate chipping. Cockpit side & instrument panels have been glued together & painted. The reason the control stick looks wonky is because I accidentally snapped the thin rear section & accidentally cut off the handle in my rushed attempt to get it off. Glued them both back on fortunately. Gunsight painted Everything would receive a few more coats of paint & some weathering before they can be called done. The instrument panel & sidewall detail would get picked out before assembly [obviously].
