DoogsATX Posted June 6, 2014 Share Posted June 6, 2014 My next build is ready to go! After playing around with jets for some months, it's time to get back to form with a proper piston-driven prop. I was one of the few that wasn't disappointed when Tamiya launched their Corsair line with the Birdcage, and not an F4U-1A or -1D. Probably because I'd already found an exact birdcage I wanted to do in 1/48...so here was a chance to do it bigger! This is "Tojo Eats S***!" from VMF-222. A very weather-beaten Corsair indeed, except for the new-looking prop. Note the mismatched tires, the lack of the usual sealing tape ahead of the windscreen, the non-standard insignia, and the dark blue on the leading edges of the wings (vs. the blue gray/light gray for the rest). This will be a fun one to build...and weather. I've got a little bit of aftermarket to throw at this one. - Barracudacals decals + cockpit stencils - Barracudacals wheels (two sets to match the mismatched wheels) - Radu's microtextile harness + canopy mask Looking to get started very soon.
