Looking forward to see more! That version of the Corsair looks tempting! !Imagine the weathering :-)

Got plans...Multiple chipping on this one....first timer on multiple chipping...but hey every one had their first timer....so that will be fun to try´.

Going to use AKs chipping medium and Salt methods.

This is some amazing work, Mal! I still can't figure out how you made those springs. I might have to copy them though, if I can't figure out how to have closed cowl flaps on my own build.

Hi Buddy

Absolutely an incredible start, as the detailing is simply so spot on, it's ridiculous! Talk about pulling one out of left field! :thumbsup:

I'll be glued to the monitor for this build and with you all the way

Keep 'em coming

Peter
