Hello Dears !

My Pratt factory has been ordered to the "Must finish a Corsair this year too" !!

WP_20181003_20_00_11_Pro

Then, I Added the armament panels on my -4, it's clearly visible and no kit brand ever reproduced it !  🤬

WP_20181003_23_51_07_Pro

The belly of the -4 is almost corrected, then I think about creating a resin plug to correct this since I still have 2 or 3 late Corsairs to do 😡 

Have a great modelling time Dears !!

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

As I say to @giemme yesterday was a british day, for my beer at least !

WP_20181009_22_05_45_Pro

Did I mention somewhere that I like Naval Aviation ??

WP_20181009_22_31_48_Pro

The desk of my F4U-2 is nearing completion

WP_20181009_23_17_52_Pro

Here's why I use resin seats...

WP_20181009_21_37_11_Pro

And now, let's start some heavy surgery on the Academy -4

 

WP_20181009_23_08_13_Pro

Opening the cowling flaps and having some good exhausts and so rearrange the back of the (resin) engine !

This Corsair will surely not be finished this year, I will send these lyrics to Neil Young ! That can be a success !

Thank for watching !

Have a great modelling time and take care !!

Sincerely.

Hey CC, you're building a Corsair or two here, I see! :frantic: :rofl: 

Looks like a lot of great stuff going on, but how many build are you doing at the same time? :frantic::frantic:

 

Ciao

Hello Dears,

First time for me to see my granddaughter !!

43788930_2027163964012787_8519076157126082560_n

Checked !! She has the family features !!  A horn shaped nose !

These 3D Echography are amazing !

Now, I get to the Bench !

Sincerely.

Congats on the new kit build. Always good when you can see work in progress. The only trouble with those kits is they can be a bit destructive on your completed builds in a few years. 😉

Thanks Greg !

Don't you worry, my completed builds are in a safe place….

And it would be one of the first thing that Lyla will learn from Gran'Dad….:phew:

KIT AREA IS A VERY RESTRICTED AREA, Then, I'll teach her how to listen to Led Zep, AC DC and so on !!

After all my son and Daughter in law are musicians !!:evil_laugh:

Hello Dears,

One more HB goof !!

WP_20181012_23_32_20_Pro

Such great see trough for tiny spaghetti like exhaust pipe !!:rofl2:

What There are Nothing else but a hole ??  🤬🤬

Sooo ! A bit more of work ahead !! But I still must finish a Corsair this year !!

WP_20181012_23_40_00_Pro

This is clearly not a hole…. And not so big at all !!

Would we have a good 1/48 Corsair someday ??

WP_20181013_00_15_32_Pro

Wings are on their way too !

I must say that I'm a bit disappointed, since the critics were very positive about the HB Corsair serie in the French modelling press !!

Whatever ! That's modelling !!

WP_20181011_15_09_14_Pro

Art School for my daughter !! My wallet is a bit depleted now

There is around 3 kits missed on this pic !!:tumble:

Just kidding ! but that's expensive too !

Have a great modelling time Dears !

Sincerely.

Srriously Giorgio,

Have'nt you read articles in wich they say that the putty will stay in the drawer ??

And when give the kit a try….. You find misadjustment, flaws and so on ??

Look at @Navy Bird build… I can show you an article saying that 1/72 AZ kits are pristine but one can eventually find some errors on the 1/48 ones ???

Here HB has missed the wings of the -5.... They give us fabric wings on a -5...

A flat belly and engine cowling on the -4 and now this…. It's a bit disappointing !

 

:rofl2::rofl2:

:cheers:

CC
