  1. Man, that's one fine looking airplane. Thank you for all the great lessons along the way.
  2. Outstanding. Congratulations on a beautiful build. I know exactly what you mean about wanting to get it done at the end of a long haul. Can’t wait for the CF-104.
  3. She looks super Brett. You mention loosing light. I can highly recommend 4' LED shop lights. You can get them at Walmart for $25. Get the brighter ones. You'll have plenty of light of a really good color temperature for painting.
  4. I knew I read it somewhere. It's on the painting and markings page of the kit instructions.
  5. That is funny. My understanding is the fabric had the patern on it before they applied it to the plane. There are several photos of tne plane on the WnW website. I don't know if it shows it well enough to be sure.
  6. I forget where from but I read that it came from the factory with the standard lozenge scheme and was painted over in the field just like MvR's red triplane. I have this kit too and was thinking of having lozenge a little visible under the white. It would add a little more interest to the plain white paint.
  7. That news makes my day. Keeping positive makes a difference and you never seemed to dwell on it and get you down.
  8. I found those a couple of hours ago and they are very interesting. It crashed mid 1943 and was a birdcage Corsair too.
  9. I agree. I think too many people depend on colorized photos. In further research it looks like the yellow primer may have been put on top of the red primer on exposed surfaces like the wings and fuselage. I'll keep looking. This is fun.
  10. Thank you for the information. In Mr. Bells book he said the most of the early war Corsairs used the salmon color primer but all the colorized photos show wing chipping with yellow under the blue/grey. Is this just a misinterpretation? I have never seen an example of a real airplane photo or a model showing pink under wing chipping. There has to be some reference that shows it one way or the other. I'm not sure I trust colorized WW 2 photos. I'm sure all this has been talked about on here before so if I'm bringing up an old subject I apologize.
  11. You sure know how to build a great looking model. The paint job looks like a very effective camouflage.
  12. Set it aside for a couple of days and give it a fresh look later. You can't give up on it after all that great work. The masks do take some practice for sure. A paint mule will give you something to practice on without worrying about it. I have a old wing that has been through about every experiment you could think of and it's a great learning tool.
  13. I find if I have low expectations I'm rarely disappointed. I'll know what it is when I see it with my own eyes.
