Hi guys, A F4U Corsair is a perfect candidate for this group build. I have a big box full of unbuild 1/32 kits in plastic bags, without their own box and mainly Revell. Soo, I dug out my Revell Corsair. For years this was the only game in town if you wanted a F4U Corsair and many masterpieces were build from it with lots of effort. Just look around on the LSP website. This was until the Trumpeter kit came along and more recently the superb Tamiya one. The kit is big but very basic as most of us know. And I'm going to build it AOOB for a relaxing build! Just box in the wheelbays to avoid interesting see-through effect, that's the plan. The pilot will occupy the cockpit. He will hide the floor which in reality is not there and also the lack of detail. He is also the excuse to keep the flaps raised, because he is already in. What are we talking about? The light blue-grey sprues: The moulds look very well used, there is a lot of flash. Not surprising, according to Scalemates this kit was first released in 1970! The instructions: And the decals of my version: From which I'm going to use the stencils only, because I will use these: HGW 1/32 wet decals for RNZAF F4U-1A / F4U-1D They are already ordered from my local model shop, the Aviation Megastore. The reason? For the Jurassic Plastic group build of a couple of years ago, I dug out a Matchbox Dauntless (this one) from the same big box. It got the same treatment as planned for now and is finished in the RNZAF scheme with the original kit decals. I think the Kiwi Corsair will be a perfect companion to my Kiwi Dauntless! I forgot to picture the clear sprue: To start the build, the JLC razor saw got a good workout this evening: To be continued. Cheers, Peter
