  1. Here's mine. Still need to replace my old shelving to match the remodel (walls, flooring), hence the barren walls.
  2. Moved to some of the seams and rivets for little today, not a lot to show. I dislike riveting (or at least, adding rivets back I wipe out) and I'm never really happy with how they turn out, at least till paint helps cover them up. Seam smoothed and rivets added back Overall progress shot. I combined both the upper and lower cowling panels for each side, in an attempt to make sure they fit correctly/straight. We'll see if that's a horrible idea soon enough. Since my progress is slow, figured I might share another vice. AKA, Lego's. I've spent entirely too much on these, but.....they are fun. Last one I built. And just one from our national parks road trip in July. It's hotter now (in Utah) than it was then! 102F/39C Sadly, no close encounters.
  3. Congrats, Woody. Glad you’re taking the time to do what you want to do with life, and that theCorsair will take 90% now! Honestly, I’m jealous. Wish I could call work done now, but I have some time left.
  4. Reading last years posts…..and, this is exactly what I’m finding up front too
  5. Oof, I don’t envy you doing that masking. But, wow….that looks GREAT.
  6. Thanks Alex. So far, no complaints against the kit. The panels are crisp, rivets nice and even in depth, panel lines all seem to be very well molded. Maybe my one gripe is some less than positive positioning I just noticed on the nose gear landing bay to cockpit. Either I didn't glue the two assemblies together correct or the fit was incorrect. Otherwise, good stuff so far! Even the instrument panel decals were very well done. Brett
  7. Minor update, I'm calling the engine good enough for government work. Not great, not terrible. There's a few seams I missed, but once it's buttoned up in the nose, they shouldn't be noticeable. Onto the wings!
  8. Really nice work. Those Barracuda decals really bring the panels to life. You should get some mail in a day or two, hope they're helpful!
  9. Same here, Woody. Nice and small and mine haven't even started losing their edge after 4 years. Plus, the handles are a nice, bright blue...ha! As for the gloss coat, I don't think that I did that on either my Corsair or the Dauntless when I dirtied them up. Crumple, assemble, wash. At least for me
  10. Wow. Impressive, and beautiful, work! Thanks for sharing the steps.
  11. Super nice work on the cowl. Looking forward to seeing the fuselage!
