Terri,
One of my all time favorite planes. Then again the entire Corsair family is on that long list.

Congrats on what looks like a really excellent build. Your 3 color camo scheme coupled with light weathering really has your build looking like a well maintained, operational aircraft.

If I have just one suggestion, it would be a larger photo station as 1/32 scale isn't exactly small.

Thanks for sharing,

Joel

Terri,
The 1/32 Tamiya F4U-1A is on my very small to buy this holiday season. I'm trying my very best not to go nuts buying 1/32 scale prop kits as something new is always coming out.

Terri,

Just saw both your builds, and having no "emotional" strings with either Mustang or the Corsair, I must confess that the last sure caught my eye.
The painting, smooth construction details and realist pose are just but a few great details to name.

And like Joel mentioned, a larger photo size could help showing it better.

Cheers,
Pedro

I know what you mean . When I was at the hobby shop a while back they had Hasegawa's new tooled Zero ! I bought it
It's a beautiful kit and it has a bunch of goodies as well . I do like 32 scale , but I just don't have the room for many so I get my favorite subjects .

Looks good.


Kit markings? (I can't be bothered to go down the hall to check mine.)

Matt , kit markings . 1976 was the year my parents got hitched so I felt this scheme would be very fitting .

Terri,
I'm trying not to think about the extra needed space per 1/32 kit. But the trade of is that most WW11 props aren't much bigger then my B-25B, and since they take me a min of twice as long to build, the space issue seems to even out some. Well, that's another way I'm trying to justify the move up in scales.

That is one way of looking at it I already have most of the ones I was looking for . Still have two more Tamiya kits , Zero ,two Bf109's , two FW190 and trumpeters P-51B . I would like to get another B model , but trumps or Revells I will pass on .
