With my Airfix Wildcat approaching completion, I thought I would dig out another naval subject. Picked this up cheap late last year. Haven't made a Revell model in years so it will be an interesting change for me. Straight out of the box as I really like the gloss sea blue look. First time I have seen a black Revell box. Sprue shot. Looks Ok. Couple of nasty sink marks on the drop tanks, but I don't intend to use them. The wing tips for the FAA aircraft on the box. Canopy parts - which I gather are very thin and fragile. Neat decal sheet (that's just a bit of dust by the way - markings are fine). Instruction booklet - which os quite a difference from the old Revell standard printed on very poor recycled paper. Confusingly there are variations between the marking scheme in the instructions and the completed kit on the front of the instructions...... Instructions look nice and clear, with plenty of colour call outs. So from my reading around, the markings in the kit are for a Corsair Mk IV which is a Goodyear built FG-1. In terms of painting it should have an interior green cockpit and inside of the engine cowling, gloss sea blue wheel wells, undercarriage and wheel hubs and overall gloss sea blue for the main colour. So relatively straight forward. Lets see if I can mess it up!
