Tamiya 1/32 F4U-1 Birdcage Corsair

Recommended Posts

Well, after seven months of work, Tamy's 32nd scale Birdcage Corsair is finally done!

There's been a lot of praise over this kit and I can only echo everyone's words! What a lovely kit overall!

For the general painting, I used a mix of acrylic colours from Mig Ammo, AK Interactive, Vallejo and Hataka as well as Aclad for the engine. The camo was done with colours from Hataka's Late US Navy paint set and weathering was achieved with oils from the Mig Ammo oilbrusher set and pigments.

The model will be placed in a small vignette but that will be done a bit later in the future! 

Again, I thoroughly enjoyed this model from start to finish not just because of it's excellent engineering but also because it was a project I feel tested and pushed my skills to a higher level!

A big thank you to all of you for your continuous encouragement but most important for sharing your feedback and suggestions with me at every stage of the build!

I dedicate this model to my lovely fiancee who bought this kit for me as a birthday present and who has been so supportive of my hobby!

Holy moly that came out nice!  The weathering is fantastic especially the chipped areas.  Great job!
