1/48 Tamiya F4U-1D Corsair

Recommended Posts

Build out of the box. It's like all Tamiya models the fit is very good. This is the Tamiya box 61061.
To the engine I added some copper wire and the first tries to use Vallejo Cipping Fluid. Didn't work out on the wings as I wanted. I like the effect on the drop tanks. The blue is a mix from Vallejo Model Air 091 Insignia Blue and Model Color 522 Satin Varnish.
Overall a really relaxing build.






Thanks for looking.
