All finished with this one. Another outstanding Corsair kit my Tamiya. The only after-market items I used were the main wheels and the seat. The exterior GSB is Testor's Model Master. Decals are a combination of kit decals and Techmod decals. No big problems were encountered although the rockets are a bit fiddly to get correct.

John,

     That looks sweet!  Great job!  Love the doped covers over the wing guns.  Looks ready for action.

Super awesome mate!  I wondered a few years ago when the Birdcage version was released if we would ever see a -1D.....you nailed it. I think this is the first one I have seen built up

 

Cheers

Anthony
