Corsair F-4U 1A Tamiya 1/32 Cockpit resin Eduard

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I am new on the forum, excuse my English because I use Google translation.

 

So far I have posted montages on French forums only, despite the language problem I have joined the Larges Scale Planes community that I have been following for a long time and which I appreciate very much.

Your criticism, remarks and advices are welcome for me in order to progress in this Hobby.

 

I started a Corsair F-4U 1A some time ago.

I'm going to embellish this Tamiya Kit with the Eduard cockpit and engine.

I started with the Pratt & Whitney 2800 engine from the Eduard Kit.

 

For the painting of the cylinders I used Humbrol Mascol liquid mask that I cut once dry. To preserve the slice of the black cooling plates.

Hello everyone,

 

For version 1A.

 

The magnetos of the Eduard Kit will be replaced by the Bendix magnetos of the Tamiya Kit.

As well as the distribution ring.

Welcome aboard Sweety🙂

 

Very nice start with your Corsair. That engine will look stunning once finished. Are you going to present your model with open cowling?

 

Cheers,

Antti

Hi all

 

Pipes on the heads of the cylinders.

Regular formatting of the 18 pipes with an improvised folding machine.

 

Set up the wire.

Push the counter-piece

And here are 18 regular pipes

Setting up the cylinders.

 

The admission pipes are too short.

 

I want to leave the engine hoods open and the pipes are too short which bothers me.

I've extended the intake pipes.

For the masking of pipes, I use Teflon, used in sanitary to waterproof the fittings.

There you go.

I foresee the same problem with the exhaust pipes.

 

See you soon,

Hi Antti,

 

Thank you so much for your message.

Yes I'll leave the engine hoods open and the engine bay.

 

See you soon Sweety

Hi everyone,

 

Extended intake pipes.

I used Maskol originally intended for masking to temporarily fix my exhausts without sticking them. It's surprisingly very effective.

:analintruder: Monsieur Sweety! (hope Monsieur @Laurent is not jealous :lol:)

Your work is awesome! Always wanted to have a good picture of the exhaust manifold scheme in the Corsair; found out the Tamiya 1/48 kit didn't have them, and when I found the REXxs ones, they were comprised of only the three portions of the exhaust protruding under the engine cowling :weep: 

Will try to fashion the reindeer's horns with some wire plastic insulation.

Yeh, me will...

à votre santé :cheers: Welcome to BM.

Hi everyone,

 

Thank you for your messages it's nice.

 

Candles must be Cubits with this version.

 

I used the Eduard resin candles that I cut in half and pierced in order to pass the ignition cable to achieve the elbow.

Hi everyone,

 

A big thank you for all your messages.

 

The engine is almost finished. I'll leave it at that for now, I still have to skate it but I will do it when the time is right to put it in the fuselage to match it with the whole.

 

In addition I'm a little tired of this engine which, I must admit, has put me a few times in trouble to realize it.

 

Plus I can't wait to start the Eduard cockpit.

Hi everyone,

 

Cockpit Eduard, that's what's going to keep me busy for a while. Just like the engine the details are beautiful.
