  1. Thanks for adding me to the list. I have the following for donation to the raffle (as a single item) Yahu- 1:32 F4U-1A Instrument Panel (YMA 3216) BarraducaCals - F4U-1 Corsair Cockpit Stencils and Placards Thanks! Simon
  2. Count me in too please! I'll dig through the stash to come up with a prize as well. Thanks for doing this again this year!! Simon
  3. Thanks for all the kind words everyone. The EagleCals set I used stated that the 86 Corsair was used for publicity photos but never actually flown by Boyington. The figure is the Ultracast Pappy Boyington figure, so that's historically accurate. Thanks again.
  4. Finally got this one finished and also tried my hand at building a base. AK Real Colours Eagle Cals Barracuda Wheels Barracuda Cockpit stencils Ultracast Pappy Boyington AK Terrains Palm Tree - from Ebay seller in Thailand It's a great kit. I have another in the pile for a later date. Thanks for looking. Simon
  5. Thanks Kev, I had forgotten how to embed images using Google Photos... got it sorted now. Thanks BiggTim
  6. UPDATE NUMBER 3 The Christmas break was not very productive for me. I think I got a couple of hours on the bench on Dec 30. The new year has been good so far build wise and we just had a week and a bit of -30 Celsius weather here in Calgary, so some nice progress has been made. Wing root / main spar coming together. Tail Wheel Oil Coolers in Main Landing Gear Wheel wells Wing Root Flaps Gear Door Covers
  7. I'm with Thunnus on this. I'm really liking them. I'm using them for my Corsair. They shoot very nicely, similar to Tamiya, and clean up easily as well. I'm using an. Iwate HP-CS - Ecplipse using the AK Real Colour Thinner.
  8. Amazing work!! 20 in a year!! Well done sir, well done. Happy New Year!
  9. I'll donate at PCM FW 190a-1/2/3 kit. (PCM 32011)
  10. Add me as an entrant please. I'll see what have that I can add as a donor shortly. Thanks for all work in running this again this year!
  11. Thanks for all the kind words everyone. The Tamiya kit is a work of art (IMHO) and I'm doing my best to do it justice. It's great when a kit is so good fit and engineering wise that you devote your energy and efforts into the paint and weathering as opposed to filling, sanding and fighting to get it fit. Thanks again, I'll have more updates soon.
  12. UPDATE TIME A bit of progress from the last couple of weeks. Fuselage buttoned up. Pappy looking happy. Engine parts ready to go First step of exhaust painting Engine Assembly Engine dirtying (that's a word) Exhaustifications - Step 1 I'll play with the setting on my phone to try and get the brightness down on the next set of photos and hold my phone horizontally. Thanks
  13. This will be my first WIP. It's the superb Tamiya kit, that we all know about. My neighbour is big Corsair fan (he's an RC plane guy), so I'm building him a Boyington markings version (as close I can make it). I'll be using the following AM. Barracuda - Cockpit Stencils Yahu - Instrument Panel Barracuda - Plain tread wheels EagleCals - EC 161 - F4U-1 Corsairs RB - seatbelts Maketar masks - for the primary insignia (maybe) Ultracast - Boyington pilot figure I'll be using AK Real Colours for main exterior and interior colours.
