Corsair F4U-1D

Recommended Posts

Been wanting to build one of these for a long time. I love the shape and the whole concept behind the bent wing bird. Just adds that bit extra. Last year I finally set to work as part of a Pacific build off with some others. Took longer than I expected. The Tamiya kit was excellent other than fitting the engine cowl around the engine. Spent a fair amount of time rebuilding the cockpit and adding more detail. I didn't want to weather this bird but rather have it in, shall we say, museum condition, all lovingly polished.

Beautiful Corsair, and that Mike Good (?) figure sets it off perfectly.

 

Kind regards,

The extra work in the cockpit certainly paid off! Beautifully finished, it's actually nice to see a clean bird sometimes.
