Tamiya 1/32 Corsair, VF-17 Bougainville, 1944

Recommended Posts

Well here she is, my interpretation of Big Jim Streig's #3.  I decided not to go with red surrounds as I feel the evidence is stronger that they were painted over by the time they got to the Solomon's.  I do however believe that most if not all the original aircraft that arrived at Ondongo, were showing red through the blue that had been painted over them.  I got some of my photos a little too blue when editing them, so know the ones that are more subdued capture the color better.  I used Vector cowl, Barracuda wheels, Eduard fabric seat belts, Eagle Edition, Techmod (From the AJ press book) and kit decals.
