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.

Be careful of the toes that you step on today for they may be connected to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow.

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
