Corsair in flight
November 27, 2012 in Aviation
This is Tamiya’s 1/48 F4U-1A with all of the control surfaces deflected, including trim tabs, the flaps raised, and the gear retracted. I added a Monogram pilot figure with his head turned and looking up. The drop tank has just been punched oiff, and is tumbling down underneath the plane. I wired the 2800, but kept weathering to a minimum. This is one of the motorized kits, but I ruined the wiring in the process of mounting it on a stick. Enjoy.
