  1. Ok I added a note to click the banner at the bottom of the article to get to Sprue Brothers, I will forward the issue with the hyperlink that I removed for now to our Admin. Thank you, Paul
  2. Thanks for bringing it to our attention, the link is functional now, there must have been a extra letter in the link when I created it . Paul
  3. The Trumpy -4 isn't terrible, but its not perfect in a few areas that may or may not be of concern. The cockpit needs a replacement and thankfully there have been sets available in the past. The landing gear bay openings have some minor shape issues, and are missing a lot of details internally, the gear and wheels and tires could stand replacements, the tires in particular are made of an artificial rubber/vinyl material and not very convincing. To most people built out of the box, it's obviously a Corsair and with 4 blades and the other subtle differences, more knowledgeable folks would know it's possibly a - 4 and the anal retentive subject matter experts will tell you all about how 90% of the kit doesnt look anything like a Corsair. I found the 1D that I built from Trumpeter a great warm up to more complex kits back in its day, and the dash 4 even more fun. Just remember, one guys idea of fun is possibly not yours The detailing that you need to do to bring either Trumpeter kit to exceptional quality can be done with some pretty involved scratch building and a lot of patience if you need a mini carbon copy... Or consider purchasing aftermarket items as one sees a need for. If you arent absolutely married to the idea of your Corsair having to be a -4, I can HIGHLY recommend ANY of the Tamiya Corsairs, the 1A and 1D look great in RNZAF markings. that would be an exceptional choice right from the box, you would just need to source some decals and seatbelts, maybe some .010 fine wire like micro solder or lead or copper for engine wiring if you like detailing engines. In 1/32 you have a lot more room to add if you so chose. All the best with your project whatever you chose. Paul
  4. Beautiful Work and to the Forums. Looking forward to seeing more progress. Paul
  5. Outstanding Tigercat! Great job. Paul
  6. Sounds about right for the changes between the versions as I read it, I'm just glad we have two excellent kits to choose from. Great time to be in 1/32 Paul
  7. Thank you DB, Im glad you enjoyed it. It's a great model for sure. It's currently tucked away for a rainy day =-) Paul
  8. Thanks Ray, Helps to have such great subject matter to review.. a great time to be modeling 1/32 Paul
  9. Thank you Darren, Im glad you enjoyed the review. These SWS kits give me the same feeling I used to get back in the day with the Monogram kits with Shep Paine diorama brochures inside, ( early 70's) that same sort of excitement about the possibilities for displaying all the detail creates another level to the project and ups the entertainment value in my book. Paul
  10. Thanks Brian, it's a nice kit, highly recomended. Glad you enjoyed the review Paul
