  1. Brett, Eduard also makes fabric seat belts for the Corsair. I believe I used them in my build. I don't recommend the photo etch steel ones, though. Here's some HGW ones; https://www.ebay.com/itm/HGW-132527-1-32-Vought-F4U-1-Corsair-Seatbelts-Laser-Cut-for-Tamiya-kit/273994467093?hash=item3fcb57c715:g:CJgAAOSwxeddcDrJ Good place to buy from & quick shipping, I use them a lot.
  2. Nice job Rick! Quite a challenging kit, but you have made a masterpiece with it. Larry
  3. Great build Tolga! Love the different late war paint job. Thanks for posting.
  4. Nice to see this completed. Beautiful build! Thanks for posting. Have a Eduard Bf-109 E4 in work myself.
  5. That is the same number I have in my stock as well, but I used Xtracolor enamel to paint my Corsair. So, cannot comment on how the MRP color looks on the model. Hopefully, someone who used MRP will comment.
  6. Nice build. Like the way you painted/weathered the exhausts. Airframe is done well also.
  7. Well done! Thanks for sharing.
  8. Thank you all for the great comments! Much appreciated. Back to another WW2 plane in work. Larry
  9. Great build Dennis. Thanks for sharing. Wish I had the room to display one of these. Larry
  10. Brett, Great choice of kits, the Tamiya Corsair is one of the best kits I have ever built. Curious, what were you going to paint US interior green? The cockpit of the Birdcage Corsairs were Dark Dull Green. The tail wheel bay was salmon pink & the main gear bays were either lower color or salmon as well. And, the MRP paints are great to use. Good choice. Larry
  11. Well done ! Thanks for posting.
  12. Here is my 3rd Wingnut Wings Albatros build. Finished in the markings or Richard Flasher of Jasta V from the Trilogy boxing. I added lead foil belts & HGW buckles to the seat, added pipes & control cables to the cockpit. Scratch built the throttle on the control stick grip. Added to the engine, Taurus spark plugs & valve springs. Added spark plug wires, various pipes, drains, fuel lines & throttle linkage. Added on the lower fuselage, photo etch access hatches & a fuel tank drain. Added rigging & control cables from transparent thread colored with a silver sharpie. Turnbuckles are simulated with micro brass tubing. Added the flare gun & field installed port on the L/H fuselage Painted with Xtracolor enamels. Pre shaded the ribs on the wings. Weathered using washes & pastels. Thanks for looking & all comments welcome. Larry
  13. Thanks for posting! Great photos. I have a KH P-39 I will someday get the nerve to pull out & build.
  14. 2nd on using the HGW stencils. I used a set on my Birdcage build & had great luck using them. I just followed the directions & left the carrier on overnight & they worked perfectly.
