Recommended Posts

hello folks 

 

I had say when I would open my new box of corsair I put the build here, I  begin in my third to corsair tamiya  :) when one loves ,there are not .....

 

out of box.... only two add harness textile HGW ,much better and realist , and a pair of wheels in resin Eduard (I dont like the rubber wheels) and the décals of barracuda

The corsair chosen not still on is 100 % but I think that that is going to be 126 white " tojo eats **** " 

His tired and dirty camouflage attracts me... :whistle:

This will be interesting to watch. Another Corsair that requires a fair amount of artistic interpretation.

 

I too bought a set of the Eduard Brassin tyres for comparison purposes to the Barracuda ones. I like Eduard's "Cruciform" tread pattern.

 

I've been approached to build yet ANOTHER Birdcage, but i think i need a rest from 32nd scale models for a while. I'm committed to building a Tamiya F-14, and i have a couple of 72nd and 48th scale Corsairs i'd like to  wrap up and put in the books, so to speak.

 

I will be watching with interest.

Looking great! keep up the great work. Looking forward to your build log.

 

LSP member Matt McDougal (Doogs) built this same exact plane. Very, very nice and weathered extremely nice. He has a building blog on his site and maybe here if you need any inspiration and helpful tips.

I was looking for an interesting plane to build myself when I came across Matt's build. Right then and there I knew I would be building this scheme.

Pascal, i tried to use the HGW harnesses, but i was put off by what seemed like pretty minimalist and hard to follow instructions on how to rig them. Do you plan on any kind of step by step narrative on doing this?

 

The belts themselves are awesome but i found the instructions decidedly user unfriendly.
