    What a fantastic build, John! One of the most impressive Corsair models I've seen. May I publish it on the website?

    Here is my recently completed 1/32 Tamiya F4U-1a Corsair painted in one of Greg "Pappy" Boyington's purported mounts, BuNo. 17740.  The Tamiya kit is an extraordinary state-of-the-art kit and doesn't need much to build up into an impressive model but I did take the liberty of adding a few aftermarket items:
     
    1. Vector Resin Cowling
    2. Barracuda Resin Wheels and Tires
    3. HGW Fabric and Phototech Harness
    4. Barracuda Cockpit Stencils
    5. Montex Masks
    6. True Details Resin Parachute
    7. HGW Wet Transfer Stencils
     
    The complete build can be found here:
     
    The canopy is removable so that I can pose it in the closed or open position.  I did not glue the wings into place so that transport would be easier.  AK Real Colors acrylic paints were used for the exterior.

    So this is the Silver Wings Gloster Gauntlet with some AIMS additions which were designed for the Gladiator I but which apply equally well to its predecessor the Gauntlet.  First some eye-candy:
     







     
    I'm intrigued by the dull matt patches below the cockpit on the fuselage sides, anybody any thoughts about this please?  And my references to date:
     



     
    both really excellent books, well worth every penny!  And to the kit, which of course is almost entirely resin:
     

     







     
    The Silver Wings prop looks a bit thin, but I'd always planned for a two-blade Gauntlet, so much more characterful!


     
    Celine didn't pack my kit quite carefully enough!!  Simon at Silver Wings has been contacted asking for the missing bits.


     

     
    The Silver Wings pe above, the AIMS Gladiator/Gauntlet pe below:


     
    Silver Wings instruction booklets are, shall we say, rather enigmatic! 
     

     







     
    ....especially in some areas:
     

     
    So I've made a start on the Mercury engine.....love a decent engine!
     





     
    More soon I hope, if this heat wave continues......

    I don't think it is physically possible to improve on this. I think you have just smashed the glass ceiling on your way to the stars  
    Truly amazing build.
