Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

Finished as NZ5272 a RNZAF corsair that was made up from 2 damaged aircraft.

Looks real good to me, those decals especially seem to have captured the colour of the RNZAF Pacific decals better than many have recently.

Thanks all,

The Xtradecals as always were a pleasure to work with. Its nice to get a different scheme every now and again.

Happy modelling

Gary

That's very nice - great weathering, and a most unusual appearance (If you hadn't included the photo, one could think it was a what-if)

Congrats on a great job.

Hi Gary,

Really nice redition of NZ5272!!! :thumbsup:

If I would offer any comment on your aircraft, the tops of the horizontal Stabillizers shoud be Sea Blue also, as in this photo link

Those decals and colours came out really well, so Kudos to Xtradecal for doing it right. And Kudos to you, for making one of the smartest looking RNZAF Corsairs in some time.

Thanks for sharing your model photos with us

Regards

Alan

Looks lke just the Leading Edge of the horizontal stabs was touched up.

I agree, nice to see Extra Decals got the insignia shade correct. Very nice build.

Cheers all,

Alan I had seen that pic but stuck with Hannants instructions,

In the same picture you linked it looks like the fuselage under the cockpit was also touched up (intermediate blue?) and possibly the aft section of the wings, now that's mixing up some more colours.... mmmmm :hmmm:

Thanks again :cheers:

Really nicely done. I especially like the pale detailiing/panel lines- very effective. D
