I have spent the summer decompressing from the aggrivation I've had working and re-working, times 3, the Marsaille 109 cowling working on the following.  I hadn't really planned to do a WIP but only wanted to show what I've been doing to while away the hours but I couldn't find a heading for the subject.  So I started this WIP thread but truthfully don't anticipate very much follow-up any time soon because, with all of the really great Corsair builds going on I thought I'd break out my Trumpeter A-1 and see what I can see.

 

Anyway, this is what I've spent the summer geeking out on.  I hope you enjoy it.

I lost the right blue line that goes into the ignition ring.  Could use a few more coolant pipes.

Now that's what I call relaxation! Absolutely top flight: the detailing is exquisite. Sure wish you take this project to completion.

Keep 'em coming ... PLEASE!!!

Terrific work as always Mark! Your attention to detail is astounding. I'm curious about which kit this is though, as it doesn't look like the old-tool kit, but I'm fairly sure the new-tool kit doesn't come with an engine.

 

:hmmm:

Holy **** tzu, Mark that's incredible, I love the under carriage . You should join the Wurger factory :), I've been fighting with A5/U14 for a while, but lost interest....for a while :).

Best of luck.

Martin

Thank you, Peter.  This was just some R & R for the summer.  Although the engine was time-consuming and tedius, each project/phase I was able to accomplish in about a week.  I stopped at the wheel well because I couldn't figure out a quick plan of action, something that didn't involve a major undertaking.  It's something I need to mull over

 

Thanks a heap, Kevin.  This is the Hasegawa Hermann Graf A-5.  The one with the red triangles on the rudder and red tulip on the nose.  The engine is relatively rudimentary.  The front and rear piston-set, and fire wall are molded as a single unit, unlike the Tamiya Corsair & Zero engines which are two halves you put together to make two separate piston-sets.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

Thank you, Martin.  There sure is a lot to the undercarriage.  I wasn't expecting as much as there ended up being.  But it just kept adding up.  I didn't show the other side of the gear cover, but as you know, the gear legs are 'pinned' to the covers with screws at the hex nut location, which is how I too connected the strut to the cover.

 

Kevin, can you move this thread over to the Wurger factory?

 

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Mark

Thanks Mark. I've got exactly that kit, and have to confess that I've never noticed the 'engine' part before.

Martinn, I had seen imagery of the aircraft scheme being both the A-5 and A-6 and took the chance that the A-5 was the one go with after seeing the Montex Mask set.  So I really didn't know, and truthfully don't know, which aircraft it would be and took the 'recommendation' of Montex after seeing their mask set.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

I can merge the threads I guess, but it could make a bit of a mess...it's up to you.
