Hi Friends,

Happy new year for everyone.

I start my Britmodeller this year with my last build (finished some months ago). The old mould but totally accurate to the todays standards of modelling manufacturers F4 Corsair in 1/48th by Tamiya.

All is very well engineered as usual by Tamiya, the fit is superb. I added some rivets with my Trumpeter's riveting tool and also the Eduard Photo Etched extra parts to upgrade the bird.

I added some extra scratch build to the cowling to simulate the mechanism to open or close the vent doors.

It's a nice plane, and very cool for weathering. Also this kit from Tamiya has a very well detailed OOB cockpit.

I hope you like it,

Cheers

Ricardo

Thanks guys. The chipping was made with a layer of xtreme metal, coat of chipping medium, green color, chipping medium, and a final camo color. Then scratch with a toothpick or old brush + water. Also some chipping color by small brush.
