  1. Sorry to miss the start of the party, but arriving fashionably late as always. Using Tamiyas 1/48 F4U-1/2 Birdcage I'm going to try and create a war weary, been around the bend hauling too many nuggets. She wont' be pretty but she will have style. The only extra will be Eduards P/E set and any stuff I can cram in with what I have sitting around. Hey, Modellers are like engineers, we love to change things. So here we go...
  2. My dear Friends, this is my last lockdown work! It seems that I have to remain all this month closed at home, so my preferred hobby is the only thing I can do. This time I have just finished a Tamiya 1/48 scale F4U 1 Birdcage Corsair flown by the ace 2nd Lt. James N. Cupp during the Pacific Conflict. Previously this airplane was flown by 2nd Lt. Kenneth Walsh, another ace of this conflict, and was White 13, but was quickly repainted and assigned to Cupp as White 7. I tried to make it this Corsair really used, faded and battered as they were during the Pacific War and I trie
  3. I'm certainly not the only one whose enthusiasm for the Chance Vought F4U is as old as his modelling obsession. This is my latest Corsair from four years ago. BuNo. 02350 arrived on Guadalcanal on 12 February 1943 with VMF-124, the first Marine Corsair squadron in the theatre. As Black (later White) 13 it was assigned to Lt Ken Walsh, who claimed some of the 6 victories of his first tour in this aircraft. A video shows Walsh alighting from another later No.13. 2/Lt Kenneth A. Walsh - VMF 124 1/Lt James N. Cu
  4. Dear All, So I have made a start on my latest model. I do this for fun/relaxation, not so good at it.....but getting better. Here is the pit/office all done..........................and yes, before anyone says anything, the interior green isn't correct.....but its what I had and is good enough for my humble needs. Enjoy........comments / suggestions (good or bad) welcome as they will only make my skills improve.
  5. Chance Vought F4U-1 Corsair Hobbyboss 1:48 In February 1938 the U.S. Navy Bureau of Aeronautics published two requests for proposal for twin-engined and single-engined fighters. For the single-engined fighter the Navy requested the maximum obtainable speed, and a stalling speed not higher than 70 mph (110 km/h). A range of 1,000 miles (1,600 km) was specified. The fighter had to carry four guns, or three with increased ammunition. Provision had to be made for anti-aircraft bombs to be carried in the wing. These small bombs would, according to thinking in the 1930s, be dropped on enemy airc

  7. Morning all, Sneaking over the line just before new year are my final two completions, the Airfix Wildcat and Tamiya Corsair. Both in 1/72 and completely out of the box. Two very neat little kits. Thanks for looking, comments welcomed Happy new year Shaun

  10. F4U-1Corsair Cockpit Set Brassin 1:32 Cockpit Set (632039) Having reviewed a fair number of add-on sets from Eduard for he Tamiya 1:32 Corsair I thought they had done everything possible, but it turned out I was wrong, especially when this set arrived from them. The set is packaged in a pretty sturdy top opening cardboard box, inside of which are an amazing number of parts, including both resin and etched brass, surrounded by foam padding for complete protection. The larger than normal instruction sheet provides some of the clearest diagrams I’ve seen from Eduard/Brassin which will he
  11. Hi, folks! This is my next model in "royal" scale from Tamiya.
  12. Hi All This is my go at Tamiya's big Corsair. The main body colour is UA038 LifeColour, the rest of the paint work is Tamiya. These 1/32 series kits go together perfectly, leaving more time to play with the paint job! Hope you like it!
  13. Build 7 Although I've already got a list of kits to build for this group I keep buying more models to build for it! This one is going to be hacked to bits and converted into a custom racer, with a longer cowling, tiny bubble canopy, clipped wings etc. I'm building it "in flight" because racers just look better that way Price: £1.99 from Antics Wow! I've not seen that much flash since this came out... Although I'm not using it, I thought I'd put a photo of the canopy up to show the kind of quality you get. You'd never guess that "thing" was for Corsair
  14. G'Day Britmodellers, I just joined a couple of weeks ago and this is my first thread. Aviation has been a very important part of my life, and a source of motivation not for this beautiful hobby but for other daily activities as well. I love WWII warbirds, post war jets, and every flying machine out there captures my attention in a very special way. I love visiting museums as well, and soon in October I’ll be visiting the USAF National Museum in Dayton Ohio. This museum has been a dream since I was a kid, when I knew of its existence when my father bought a subscription of the National Geo
  15. Here’s my version of Tamiya’s 1/48 F4U-1 ‘birdcage’ Corsair, finished in the nondescript markings of a Marine squadron based in the Solomon Islands in 1943. This build was almost straight ‘out-of-the-box’ – the only things added were seat belts, a rearview mirror, and some brake lines to the main gear. These kits are real treats to build – if you are careful, you won’t have to fill a single seam. I realize a Marine Corsair based in the Solomons would be probably not have the wings folded, but I really like the look of a plane with dropped flaps, folded wings, open canopy, etc. I also kept we
