  1. 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
  2. So it didn't become Streig's Navy Corsair OOB build after all, as I had to think way too long about the markings. Instead it became a VMF-114 machine based on Peleliu in 1944, while the airfield was still under enemy fire. In what is often described as the shortest bombing run in history, these planes took off from the runway, dropped bombs and napalm about a mile or two North of the airfield and turned back to land again, with the pilots rarely even bothering to raise their landing gear. Full build video can be viewed here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsgejUE-UhU
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Hi there, I'm new here and also a newbie - getting back to the hobby for the last couple of years . Our local model builder's forum, where I've posted my build reports so far have been, closed. I was looking for a new place to share my adventures in building and mainly learn from the experience of other builders. I surveyed the internet and Britmodeller came up as a good place - so here I am. My build chronicles will be detailed as much as I have time - as I'm out to share my experience with the specific kit I'm building as well as learn and get feedback on new tec
  11. Revell have just released a brand new boxing of a Corsair, based on their recent F4U-1 kit but this time it's a Royal Navy Corsair Mk II (F4U-1B) with the clipped, squared off wingtips! I was quite excited to see a modern mainstream kit of a Royal Navy Corsair in 1/72, so I had to get one, as I didn't really want to modify another kit. It turned up in the UK last week, so I stuck one our trade order and it arrived yesterday and I took these pics, note the wingtips in the last pic! The decals come with instrument panels and seatbelts, so my plan is just to build the kit OOB using the decals and
  12. Vought F4U Corsair (AR14406) 1:144 AFV Club via Pocketbond The Corsair is an iconic fighter aircraft that had speed agility and an unusual look to recommend it to pilots, but its gestation was far from easy due to the highly demanding specification that required not only high speed, but great load carrying capability, combined with a low stall speed to make it suitable for carrier operations. It was given the largest engine then available in the shape of the Pratt & Whitney Double Wasp radial engine, which could drive a huge three bladed prop that was almost 14
  13. Straightforward build of the Italeri kit... some modifications made to the engine and nose areas, particularly the cowl "cheeks". Cheers, Herb
  14. Good day, I've finished this one at last. It gave me quite a few headaches, especially when I broke the cockpit canopy... I took several weeks to get a replacement, and at some point I thought I would have to buy a whole new kit for just the canopy, or spend twice the price of the kit to order a replacement canopy from the UK. Hannants' range of products is excellent, but 13.85 British Pound for overseas delivery is a bit steep So on to the kit. The kit isn't bad, but it's not good either. It's inaccurate in several aspects, sporting F4U-1D details which needs to

  17. F4U-1 Propeller 1:32 Eduard Brassin - For Tamiya Kit Propeller (632110) This is a new prop unit. The blades are individual and seat into the top of the hub via a provided jig. When this is removed from the pour block the modeller will have to drill a locating hole in it. Review samples courtesy of
  18. Just finished this one for a client. The stand is included in the kit and makes for an interesting display which helps show off the Corsair's sleek and powerful lines. No trouble with the kit on this one, but a few trials of patience with my own ham-fisted-ness. Tamiya spray paints sprayed by airbrush. Kit decals were used and proved to be thick and hard to work with. There is a small Work in Progress thread here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235027527-132-f4u-1d-corsair/&tab=comments#comment-2835657 Thanks for looking comments a
  19. Hi guys! This time I would like to show you my last model. It´s the simple Academy F4U-1D Corsair in 1/72. It has some Eduard PE and some improvements, like a longer tail gear and navigation lights. Decals are custom made and the bands are painted to represent an aircraft of the USS Intrepid. I hope you like it! Every critics and comments are welcomed! Best regards from Uruguay, Ignacio
  20. My son was diagnosed with ewings sarcoma (bloody nasty bone cancer), which turned out be a bone infection. Yes a relief. How anybody would get an infection on a bone has got me beat, and he hasn't had an injury. I lost interest in modeling, I lost interest in most things. I am going to build this nice little kit, and turn it into something better than my previous attempts. Another one from Toyworld Winenut. Box art; The little bits of pleasure and things to go wrong. If anybody can give some guidance in the building of this kit I would be appreciated. Thanks for looking. Stephen
  21. Are there any photos existing that show the clear-vision canopy F4U-1 (retrospectively called F4U-1A) in the USN two-tone "gray camouflage" or at least with pre-1943 insignia (stars with no bars)? It is commonly said the US Navy introduced the three-tone "blue camouflage" in January 1943 and the red-bordered stars with bars in June the same year. On the other hand the 758th (and final) "birdcage" Corsair left the Vought assembly line in May 1943, thus finding a Blue Gray/Light Gray F4U-1A looks impossible. But F6F-3 Hellcats operated from CV-9 Essex and CV-10 Yorktown still in May 1943 wearin
  22. Next Hobby Boss Corsair kit will be a 1/48th Chance Vought F4U-1 Corsair early version - ref.80381. Release is announced for late August 2015. So should be available in the best hobbyshops in September-October. Source: http://www.hobbyboss.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=44&l=en Box art V.P.
  23. Evening all, Having run out of steam a little with my Battle of Britain project, I've switched my attention to my main area of interest, naval aviation. I started a Hobby Boss F9F last week, but couldn't resist making a start on another couple of classic fighters whilst the Panther trickles along in the background. Having been o impressed with the Defiant, I wanted to crack open another of Airfix's recent toolings, and having picked up the Wildcat and Kate dogfight double, the F-4F seemed an obvious choice. My pair of Tamiya Corsairs have been screaming at me from the stash for some time now

  25. I still remember one of the early models my mother bought for me, at a time I was very young to go to the centre of Athens and buy kits myself. It was an Academy F4U. I even bought my first reference book for a model back then. That was some 25ish years go. Ever since I always felt that the F4U was the most striking WW2 airplane along with the Spitfire. When Tamiya introduced their 1/32 gem I began contemplating building one. However, for reasons of space and (at the time) money, I decided to try the 1/48 first - kind of like a rehearsal. Tamiya's 1/48 is a good kit. A very good kit. But w
