A few days ago a thought popped into my feeble brain:

"Ted, you weathered the Corsair before you applied the decals"

OMG it hit me like a proverbial "ton of bricks". I had already been thinking about re-masking [no reason why I should have removed the masking to begin with] and just backing off the current paint to some degree [sanding/stripping/etc.] and starting over with a base layer of paint, then decals, THEN WEATHERING. In other words, the proper sequence.

after having to close my hobby area, I took a hard look at my uncompleted builds. It was hard but I decided that the Corsair finish was mission impossible. I salvaged all the parts I could and canned the rest. I plan to start over with a Tamiya kit. Still going for a carrier deck diorama with figures, etc. So this thread is ended here. Sorry guys--my bad.

The end of the most layered weathering process ever ;-). Looking forward to see the salvaged parts back in the upcoming Tamiya build :-)

A shame to see all that hard work gone but good that you have been decisive about it and that it is one less thing pulling on your focus [smile]

Perhaps you might leave us with a parting photo of the bits you salvaged for the Tamiya kit ? [biggrin]

True re the end of the longest weathering! Lol.
As for the salvaged parts--those were all packed up before I moved from the "unit". Not sure I remember what I kept? Engine, all parts not glued on such as landing gear, wheels, prop, etc.

As per my statement above, I Could not resist ordering this kit. After all, I destroyed the Hobby Boss kit with my insane paint work, then I "weathered" w/o applying the decals! so that model is now in my stash of parts and pieces, etc. I fully intend to finish the corsair on the aircraft deck diorama. Too much invested in figures, scratchbuilding, deck material, etc. When I get ready, I will have this Tamiya kit.

It is excellent! super molding and details [especially THE ENGINE AND COCKPIT INTERIOR], choices for wing and flap position, cowling flaps, pilot figure, moto tug with tow bar and wheel chocks, tug driver, nice "glass" and decals to boot. In addition, I have EDUARD'S AM PE kit for the interior and other parts, not to mention full IP replacement in color and seat belts.

Thanks Fabian! I LOVE the corsair airframe.The Hobby Boss kit had the in wing machine guns, ammo boxes and ammo belts, and the engine was more detailed, But......this Tamiya is an older kit but has better cockpit detail overall. Of course, the moto tug and two detailed figures are nice also. I will be able to use some of the leftover Hobby Boss components when I do this build/diorama. The AM PE should really add a lot--we will see. Several projects before I get back to this one though.

It has been a LONG time since the request to see the salvaged parts from the hobby boss corsair kit was made here. While unpacking stuff for my newest hobby bench, I found the box of spare parts left over from the plane itself. I also have the deck tractor I built and the trailer. So here is a picture of the salvaged components.

That tractor is not looking bad.. except for that wheel lol. I'm going to go back and see what happened here. I don't know why you had to salvage this build or why it has to be salvaged lol.

AH. You could've saved that build I believe. You could've shelved it and I'm sad to see so little of it left.

That build had so much going for it. Sad to see that this is how it ended. [frown]

A lot of work indeed. Since then I have bought a new corsair kit that has a tractor with it, and I also have 2 figure kits, one which is mechanics and PE tools. The other kit is a pilot set with a tractor and technicians. The problem began with a nasty salt chipping technique overdone and then I left off the decals before other weathering. Everything I did on the body of the corsair was way over the top. I have everything I need to start the build/diorama over. Thanks for looking.

The tractor I scratched from an old ground crew/ equip kit can be used best with a ground diorama.
