  1. The next HobbyBoss 1/48th Corsair variant is a Royal Navy Mk.II - ref.80395 Sources: http://www.hobbyboss.com/index.php?g=home&m=product&a=show&id=63&l=en V.P.

    F4U Corsair

    Hey Folks, I am having trouble finding Corsairs with the tri-color scheme that have carrier markings. Is it due to lack of documentation? or for some reason the tri-colored schemed aircraft did not get markings? Were most of them land-based, hence the lack of carrier markings? Also, are there any good examples of the walk-line placement on the wings? Did the width and placement vary?
  3. Hello Gents And Ladies, This is my 1st contrubition to Britmodeller. This is Revell boxed, hasegawa mould 1:48 F4U-7 kit finished as AU-1 (F4U-6)Korean war veteran. I used a pair of Kont Eduard's seatbelts, Printscale decals. Process still goes on, I hope you like it.
  4. Hey Folks, Started another build (my fourth simultaneous). Sorry for no pictures of the cockpit, was too involved with the others. If I do anything special to a cockpit during a build, I promise pictures. I picked the kit up on Amazon when the price lowered. It was described as 'new'. When it arrived, every single bag inside was opened. Fortunately, everything was o.k. It was a lot of work trying to keep all the details on the fuselage in front of the canopy. Kudos to all who have built a corsair. It is something to consider before building one, which I wasn't aware of
  5. Good evening. Finally completed and photographed, my take on the Revell 1:48 F4U. One of my favorite planes, providing endless inspiration for weathering, I am tempted to look into a 1:32 kit, tips and suggestions welcome. I build this essentially OOB. I had a bit of a fight with silvering of the decals on the port side and may revisit them on a rainy Sunday. In the meantime, thanks all for looking. CF CF
  6. CHANCE-VOUGHT F4U CORSAIR STGB Hello everybody so I’m considering starting another STGB. I had planned on waiting till June to drop this in here. But I decided i couldn't wait. I was thinking of going for the Chance Vought F4U Corsair as the subject of the build. I know there was a Corsair STGB in 2016. I hope to repeat the success of that build. I am proposing any model of the F4U Corsair from the Prototype XF4U to F4U-7, including the AU-1(F4U-6). Yes the Brewster and Goodyear variants are allowed. They were after all licens
  7. Hi I would like to join with this F4U-1 (or -2) "Birdcage" Corsair Tamiya 1/48th scale I have not yet chosen the subject: I have already built the white 20 of the Marines VMF-213 in 1/72 scale but it remains my favorite for early 2 tone camo and the presence of the eagle on the engine cowl Second of the list is one of the two night fighter of the Marines VMF(N)-532 (black 205 or 212) , last but don't least , the 3 (actually 4) tone camo 17-F-13 of the Navy VF-17 PS the same model had been presented for the Pacific at war GB but was not suitable for the regulation for whi
  8. I completed this on the fourth of August, and it's memorable for me because 1) it's a completed model, 2) it's the first completion I've ever achieved in a group build, and 3) I did it, start to finish, in a little over two months. Here's the WIP as a reference: I'm still having issues with lighting so the photos are a bit contrasty, but here they are.
  9. Well seeing as I'm co-hosting I thought it was about time that I revealed what I will be building for this GB. Now those of you who have seen my builds in the past will know that I like to build things in markings that are a little out of the ordinary and have an interest in things flown in smaller conflicts from around the World and as such I voted for the Small Wars GB which unfortunately didn't get picked this time around so I thought I would use this opportunity to show why I like the subject and hopefully garner some support if it comes up for voting again, and also to point some of
  10. Hi all, Thought that I would share some pics with you all of one of my latest completed models. Built as part of the ongoing (and excellent) Corsair STGB it is Hasegawa's 1/48 F4U-5NL built as an aircraft operated by the Argentine Navy during their 1963 (unsuccessful) revolt against their government. Still a nice kit to build despite getting on a bit it does have a few issues but nothing drastic. I used an old set of FCM decals and they performed very well indeed and certainly seem to be accurate to the pictures I have seen. Enough waffle here are the pictures;
  11. Just started this one last Thursday. It will be totally Out Of the Box and will be built wheels up and on the included stand. I built the F4U-1A Birdcage http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234958333-132-tamiya-f4u-1-corsair with the cockpit open, wings folded and flaps down etc. so I've done that once. The cockpit is painted as recommended in the instructions using Tamiya paints mostly and a bit of Vallejo here and there for coloured knobs etc. The gun sight is still to be added and there is a PE harness to go over the pilot's shoulders. This
  12. Here is this week's build...this one took four days total, mostly afternoons and a little evening time. Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1A in RNZAF markings from Eagle Strike, Guadalcanal May 1945. I went a tad heavier than usual on the weathering and tried a few new techniques since the pics I found of this and other RNZAF aircraft around the same time showed them fairly dirty and hard-worked. Fun build.
  13. Vought F4U-1A Corsair 1:72 Revell The legendary Chance Vought Corsair was one of the most effective combat aircraft to see service during the Second World War. Famous for its 11:1 kill ratio in the hands of US Navy pilots, the Corsair was also notable for achieving a longer production run than any other piston-engined fighter in US history. For best performance, the Corsair was given the largest engine then available: the Pratt & Whitney Double Wasp. This 18-cylinder, 46 litre monster drove a huge three-bladed prop that was almost 14 feet across. In order to ensure the prop didn't s
  14. Hi Friends, Happy new year for everyone. I start my Britmodeller this year with my last build (finished some months ago). The old mould but totally accurate to the todays standards of modelling manufacturers F4 Corsair in 1/48th by Tamiya. All is very well engineered as usual by Tamiya, the fit is superb. I added some rivets with my Trumpeter's riveting tool and also the Eduard Photo Etched extra parts to upgrade the bird. I added some extra scratch build to the cowling to simulate the mechanism to open or close the vent doors. It's a nice plane, and very cool for weat
  15. Hi! Here's another one of my builds - a ww2 corsair, heavily used with exposure to sun, sand and salty water.
  16. Hi there fellow modellers. First time post in ready for inspection. It’s my second build with my new airbrush (Revell’s basic set, single action) and my tenth build overall, so I ‘m still figuring things out. Overall I’m happy with the result but there are things that need improving. First of all when I painted the fuselage paint looked nice, really happy with the result. Then I gloss coated it before putting on the decals (with Vallejo gloss acrylic varnish 26.517). After coating the paint didn’t look that nice/smooth anymore. In hind side I don’t know if the paint never was that
  17. 1/32 Revell F4U Corsair is done Im doing for a customer and he want no decals, he will add his custom ones later And the color is his own choice Hope you guys like my latest work https://flic.kr/p/2etHxeX https://flic.kr/p/2fN5CrE https://flic.kr/p/TJp1fG https://flic.kr/p/2eEV7Rs https://flic.kr/p/TJp1nA https://flic.kr/p/2fN5CGQ
  18. This is the older Revell kit, but despite it's age, it still builds into a nice model. The fit is generally pretty good and you do have the option to fold the wings. This is built straight from the box, with the roundels masked and painted on. The aircraft is one used in the 100 Hours, or more commonly known as the Soccer War between Honduras and El Salvador in 1969. It was the last air war fought with piston engined aircraft, Honduras flying Corsairs and El Salvador flying a mix of Mustangs and Corsairs. Surviving fighters on both sides continued to serve into the 1970's.
  19. Hello All, Here's some pics of the HobbyBoss Corsair I've been working on while some paint dries on a AIrfix C-47. Hope you enjoy the pics. As always any comments are appreciated. All the Best! Don
  20. VF-17 "Jolly Rogers" F4U-1A White 3 - Lt Frederick "Big Jim" Streig Bougainville 1944. This is the Revell kit brush painted OOTB. At 1/72 scale it provides a lot of nice detail at a low price. A few fit issues were overcome during the build, and it was an enjoyable project. TFL Cheers Greg
  21. Can anyone inform me about Trumpeters 1 32 kit for the Corsair F4U 1D with regards two questions : 1 : can I paint the clear engine cowling directly or do I have to prep it in some way ? Someone suggested spraying Scotchgard on the surface. 2 : how does the acetate film instrument panel get glued or attached in between the back and front panel pieces ? Theres no place to spot glue into any area...
  22. Hi all, I'm in the process of building an Academy 1/72 F4U-1 modified to a Fleet Air Arm Corsair Mk.II operating in the Pacific theater and I was wondering about the colour of the wheel wells. Was it the regular US interior green colour or was it Sky like the underside? - Cam

  24. F4U Wheels (for Tamiya) 1:72 Eduard I've reviewed quite a few different resin wheels from Eduard, and they've never failed to impress me. The resin is always flawlessly and the details are crisp and sharp. This set provides a complete set of resin wheels for Tamiya's 1:72 Corsair. The main wheels have flat spots cast in place, while the tail wheel actually includes a complete replacement strut assembly (except for the tail hook). The latter includes photo etched details and paint masks are included for both main wheels and tail wheel.
  25. Hello all I'd been posting this on another forum, but there doesn't seem to be much overlap of readership (or rather, of active posters at least) so I thought it might be of interest here as well. If it's redundant, let me know, and I'll just carry on there. This is the second part of project modeling the aircraft my grandfather flew in WW2. The first part, a 1/48 Tamiya F4F-4 representing his tour at Guadalcanal with VMF-121 and VMF-223 in the Fall of ’42, is posted here. This time I’m doing the ubiquitous 1/48 Tamiya F4U-1A. Neither the actual airplane nor the ki
