Hi All!

With my A-4 all but done... It's time to get in the game!

I've always loved the corsair.... In fact it is probably the most built Aircraft I have done.....

This will be mostly OOB, with the exception of a corrected Prop from Quickboost, Eduard Super fabric belts, Brassin HVAR Rockets and if need be some Quickboost Antennas. This stuff is en-route now from Sprue Bro's.

And for markings, I'll be using Cam decals depicting BuNo 122066 of VMA-224 based at NAS Miami 1952

Well on to the Pre-Build Pics.

Thanks for looking!

Dave

Update Time!

Started with the pit........
Got everything cut off the sprye and tidied up.

Sorted out some ejector pin marks with CA and accelerator



Didn't like how the sidewall structure fit. seemed to be setting too high. So I adjusted the locators till it sat flush





Then Primed everything w/ Stynylrez



Painted Interior green


Finished up the Pit. -5's and up had all black interior w/ the exception of the floor, seat and FWD Bulkhead. Painted the Head rest Gunze Propeller Red, Dry brushed with Mr Metal Aluminum, And washed with MIG washes




And waiting on the Inst Panel Decal to settle. Put down some Mr Mark Setter then decal then Used Salvaset on top. Working pretty well!


Thats All for now!

Thanks for looking!

Dave
