  Thank you everyone for your kind words. Everybody's builds look great. Sorry, I haven,t contributed much lately but, life and work have been pretty hectic. I have been trying to get caught up and make the deadline. Here are some pics
  In the build stage.

  I painted the engine with Alclad Duraluminum and gave it an oil wash.

  I drilled holes in the ignition ring and inserted copper wires and painted them.



 Masked up and ready for paint.


 I pre-shaded the panel lines and sprayed Model Master enamel Insignia White on the bottom.

 I used blue tack and Tamiya masking tape and sprayed Intermediate Blue on the sides and tail.


 Masked again and sprayed Navy Blue. I added some white to the mix and did some bleaching.




 Then I sprayed everything with Pledge Multi Surface and am working on the decals now. Will have some pics soon. Thanks for looking.
   Off the subject, I live about 20 miles from Kennedy Space Center. Here are some pics of a launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station last month, from my front yard. It was just before sun up so the exhaust trail was pretty lit up. Looks like it blew up but it didn't.

No worries. Excellent progress and pictures. Especially nice work on the engine/wiring. Actually very few images required under the rules of the GB. Any images beyond that are a real bonus.

That engine looks fantastic Michael. I've never actually tackled wiring one of them up feel free to whack up a tutorial if you like ..... please? lol
And the colours look great. Seeing the F4U's in different colours in this GB has been great.
Well done.

Very nice paint job Michael! The bleaching looks great and I like the soft transition between the colors.

Thanks Simon. The engine wiring was the first time that I tried it. It was pretty easy. I looked up Corsair engine pictures on Google for references. I drilled the holes in the ignition ring and the cylinder heads with a small drill bit in a pin vise.  I glued the wire into the ignition ring with superglue. then I bent the wires over the cylinders and cut them to length then glued the wires into the cylinder head holes and painted them.

Thanks Fabian. Trying to get the hang of air brushing. I got back into building models about 2 years ago after taking about 20 years off. Bobby's and everybody's work on this site has been a great inspiration.

Hey guys, finally finished it. After putting the decals down with Micro Sol and Set I sealed it with another coat PMF. I put down a wash with black and gray oils and wiped it clean then used a silver Prismacolor pencil and Tester's silver paint, dabbed with scrap foam rubber for chipping. I also used black pastel and a Tamiya weathering kit for the first time.
  Hope you like, will be posting more pictures in the final reveal section.
