I got inspired for this build trough a picture I stumbled (scroll down). If I could pick every plane I would like to have – this is what it would look like… one big WHAT IF ;-)

  • Kit: tamiya 1/48 vought F4U-1D corsair
  • Rockets: eduard brassin
  • Cockpit: eduard PE zoom set
  • Cockpit & engine: verlinden resin
  • Wheels: cmk resin
  • Canopy: eduard masks
  • Decals: honestly don’t remember, binned them because they where absolutely useless
  • New decals & resin prop: tomcat_tweeker

You are looking for a nice relaxed build with great details and excellent details? That’s the kit to look for. It’s brilliant, nothing to complain at all. Almost feels a little cheating building this little gem for the GB ;-). And for the extras I got, don’t bother. I’m pretty sure I could build the kit again without them and you would have troubles to spot the differences. So, nothing more to write about except: big fat thank you to Dave aka tomcat_tweeker, my knight on the white horse ;-). He helped me out by sending me those beautiful decals (cutting edge) all the way from Japan, free of charge and even threw in this very cool 4-bladed prop. You’re the man!

I think that’s all - hope you enjoy the pictures!










pretty close [biggrin]

Another superb model from the F.A.B. factory.

Excellent finish, good attention to detail, and quite obviously one that you wanted for personal reasons.

Bring on the eggs...
