  1. Hi everyone, I’ve been excited awaiting the start of this particular group build as I’m christening it with the grandest kit i’ve tried to date I’m stoked about it BUT I’m terrified of screwing it up it was so expensive It’s Tamiya’s F4U-1A corsair and the biggest scale build i’ve yet attempted. The kit comes in a huge box jam packed full of goodies to which i’ve added a few bits of my own. The instructions come in an equally substantial booklet and this is partnered with a tamiya corsair reference book. I have my own reference book als
  2. Hello everyone.... This one of my three builds for this group build. I will be building this as Gregory Pappy Boyington’s 883 his go to Corsair during the time that VMF-214 were in the Slot. The decals in the kit actually combine 17786 and 16883 aircraft into one. Incorrect though they are most of the decals will be used for the build. All I need do is change the side #’s from 86 to 883. 17786 was famously used for a series of photo’s and an article shortly before Pappy was shot down and Captured. The obligatory sprue shots. Im not sure i will use the resin
  3. Chaps, planning on purchasing Tamiya's 1/48 F4U-1A to do a New Zealand bird, I wanna use Sky Models decal sheet as seen below, will be building as the bottom aircraft on the pic It quotes top colour as light grey but only picture I can find in colour is this one and it looks more like a very pale blue, just wanted to confirm the correct topside colour.

  4. Hello everybody! Finally I had the time to put my dirty hands on some aircraft models. This is my third built, I wanna increase my abilities, I have really a lot to learn. First thing first: the cockpit. The dials aren't realistic, I just tryed to paint some lines, indicators and buttons, using brilliant colours to make them pop out. I need to resettle a bit the seat belts, conforming their shape with the seat. I also painted the pilot. Soon (maybe tomorrow) I will do the interior of the fuselage and the engine. Thanks for the attention payed, feel free to leave suggestions!
  5. Ok my second STGB for the year! I have been tossing around whether I was or wasn’t going to do a build for this one but the calendar is sort of free so why not! So for this one I’ll be building a Fleet Air Arm Corsair II JT 410 off the carrier HMS Victorious, this will go along nicely with the Avenger/Tarpon I that I did for the FFA GB. The base model will be the lovely 1/48th Tamiya F4U-1A. Plus a few extras thrown in, Eduard PE bits… …..UltraCast seat with the right seatbelts…though it does look a wee bit small! ….plus decals from EagleCal. Being a FAA Corsair there will be
  6. Here's my entry: ... and here's what's in the box: ... and markings: ... though I might use these as I have a hankering for the red-bordered star-and-bars: I got a couple of extras too, a masking set because I am lazy... ... and a set of wheels so I don't have to clean up the join around the tyre treads: I've got my paints: Dull Dark Green, Zinc Chromate Yellow, Non-Specular White, Intermediate Blue and USN Sea Blue from the USAAC/USN range... ... and I've got the weekend pretty much free, so I hope to make a start shortly. Cheers, Stew
  7. MustHave is to release a Vought F4U-1/F4U-1A Corsair resin conversion set for Tamiya kit - ref.MH172001 Source: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=422377244635082&id=297895983749876 V.P.
  8. Seatbelt and Mask sets for Tamiya F4U-1A Corsair 1:32 HGW Models As with the set for the Revell 1:32 Fw-190, reviewed HERE, this set has been released in HGW’s Basic Line. The quality is the same as the previously reviewed set, as are the components, i.e. a sheet of laser cut seatbelts, etched buckles and clasps for the seatbelts and a sheet of masks. Being laser cut, the edges of both the seatbelts and masks are as crisp and clean as you could want. Only the small join to the sheet marring the perfection. If you’re using a new No11 blade then you should be able to cut them out wi
  9. F4U-1A Corsair Cockpit Set Brassin 1:32 Cockpit Set (632053) Having released numerous additional sets for the previously released F4U-1 Corsair, Eduard have now turned their attention on the newer F4U-1A version, starting with the cockpit. The set comes in a very well packed cardboard with the parts in several zip lock bags and prevented from being shaken around by two foam pads. There are fifty two resin parts in a mixture of medium and dark greys, plus one clear resin parts, a sheet of pre-painted etched brass and a sheet of unpainted photo etched parts,. The detail on the resin p
  10. Hello all, im new here, this is my first build post on this site. This is my newest addition to my display case. Its the new Tamiya 1/32 f4u-1a corsair. Of all the builds I have done in the past, this is by far the nicest kit I have come across yet. I added a few extras to go along with the build, such as the barracuda decals for the interior of the cockpit, barracuda diamond tread tires, rb productions oil cookers, and hgw seatbelts, and the decals that I used were by fundakals, very nice by the way, and ez line for the aerial wire. The paints that I used were all done by mr color, weathering
  11. Chance Vought F4U-1A Corsair detail Sets Eduard 1:32 The Tamiya 1:32 Corsair F4U-1A is a fantastic model straight out of the box as are all of this series of 1:32 kits, but there are always more ways to gild the lily. This is Eduard come in with their range of update sets for it, six in fact if you include the zoom and mask sets, and there’ll probably be joined by others in the near future. Each set is held in the usual poly sleeve packaging with a card insert to prevent damage, and the instructions still leave a lot to be desired. Typically some of the kit details need to be remo
  12. My rendition of Revell's new tool Corsair. Painted with Gunze Sangyo acrylics and weathered with a variety of products. I didn't weather the drop tanks as I assumed that they would have been new on the original plane. ...and I broke and lost the antenna... Hope you like her.
