After the big GB I want to build something small and fun...



There will be no scratch building or aftermarket - okay, I got the Eduard interior set for this one :-). Apart from that straight OOB. The kit is looking great, fine details, almost no flash and as far as I can already tell good fit. And this for less than €8.- GREAT!!! I jumped right into this and forgot to take some sprue shots, sorry. Here are some pics of the beginning:















Thanks for watching!

Oh yeah, it's a new kit from 2014. Nice work Revell!

I'm looking forward to the finish!! [smile]

Thanks SuperTed :-). All the main parts are in place and the beauty of the Corsairs shape is starting to show... such a cool plain!





There was a little bit of filler needed at the wingroots, cannons and the intakes(?) at the wingroots. But went together without any major issues. The white sprues are a little annoying to work with because it's hard to see the details and made mistakes ;-). So time for some primer... looking good and all the fine panel details are starting to show.



Those are the intakes I was talking about...



Also started working on the smaller parts. There are some decals going on prior to some chipping...



Thanks for looking :-)

Your doing a super job, I did that kit the week it came out and loved it but had a little bit of trouble with the intakes in the wings, how did you find them? It's one of the best kits Revell have released

Wow--the primer and small parts look GREAT! I love the gull wing corsairs. I keep saying to myself that I really want to do 1/48 planes or 1/35 armor, but..........that Revell corsair is very tempting---if I could do the level of work you are showing. congrats!

Thanks Eoin, I saw your build, very nice! The intakes needed some TLC to get them fit. But the white plastic is quite soft, so sanding is really easy. Just go slowly and with not much pressure to not overdoing it. Looking forward to paint this baby :-)

Thanks Ted. Yeah, I actually want to try a 1:32 plane but somehow keep building those little gems :-). It's really a great little kit Ted. New molding and cost not even €8.-, thank you Revell :-). Would love to see you building this one. I'm sure it would be great, and with an epic WIP ;-)

Started painting today...


First pre-shading, followed by a basic coat and tried to do some highlighting. I forgot to take pictures of the white belly, have to wait for that till the masking is coming of :-)

You are killing me! I've got a 1/48 Hobby Boss Corsair in  my stash with great features all round, but my brain keeps reminding me to "finish the Phantom F-4". its like I got an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other----wait a minute, I have a devil on my work bench! My confusion could be his fault? Nice progress, can't wait to see more.

Haha, I'm so sorry Ted. I'm afraid those pictures don't help you at all with your dilemma ;-). I would love to see your Phantom finished btw!



I thought this is a good testing ground to try some panel shading. Like the effect so far.
