Hi! I just recently finished a 1:72 Revell Corsair and during the building it stumbled upon this picture...

It is heavily photoshopped but it looks so HOT! So I'm going to build an other Corsair, this time 1:48 scale and paint it the way it would be if it was mine... the real one... scale 1:1... wrooooom!!!
What if... I had al the time, knowledge and most of all the $$$ to keep one of those beautiful planes alive and fly it all the time, how would it look like... Looking forward to this ;-)

a great kit and lots of nice goodies Fabian, I'm really looking forward to seeing what you have got planned for this mate

Pete

Edit :

I'm pretty sure that in the Korean War there were f-4 corsairs in overall black paint (the flying nightmares IIRC)

Thanks Pete, I will look into that. But however, black is definitely a very pleasing color for the Corsair.

Hi Fab,

Nice program. This kit will give you a lot of fun. A pure gem from Tamiya.

What do you think about the Verlinden set ?

Good luck mate [wink]

Sure, but I'm also new to this kit. Will start building as soon as I'm back home and let you know if I can spot some problems with it... hope not :-).

I think so, as far as I can tell this looks like a great kit! You really have to look close to spot the difference between the Verlinden and the kit parts. Will post some comparing pictures when I'm back home... and decide what parts I'll be using. Also have the Eduard interior set... a lot to choose from :-)
