Corsair F-4U 1A Tamiya 1/32 Cockpit resin Eduard

Recommended Posts

 

Hello everyone,

 

I am new on the forum, excuse my English because I use Google translation.

 

So far I have posted montages on French forums only, despite the language problem I have joined the Larges Scale Planes community that I have been following for a long time and which I appreciate very much.

Your criticism, remarks and advices are welcome for me in order to progress in this Hobby.

 

I started a Corsair F-4U 1A some time ago.

I'm going to embellish this Tamiya Kit with the Eduard cockpit and engine.

I started with the Pratt & Whitney 2800 engine from the Eduard Kit.

 

For the painting of the cylinders I used Humbrol Mascol liquid mask that I cut once dry. To preserve the slice of the black cooling plates.

Hello everyone,

 

For version 1A.

 

The magnetos of the Eduard Kit will be replaced by the Bendix magnetos of the Tamiya Kit.

As well as the distribution ring.

Hi all

 

Pipes on the heads of the cylinders.

Regular formatting of the 18 pipes with an improvised folding machine.

 

Set up the wire.

Push the counter-piece.

And here are 18 regular pipes

Setting up the cylinders.

 

The admission pipes are too short.

 

I want to leave the engine hoods open and the pipes are too short which bothers me.

I've extended the intake pipes.

For the masking of pipes, I use Teflon, used in sanitary to waterproof the fittings

There you go.

I foresee the same problem with the exhaust pipes.

 

See you soon,

Hi everyone,

 

Extended intake pipes.

I used Maskol originally intended for masking to temporarily fix my exhausts without sticking them. It's surprisingly very effective.
