Tamiya 1/48th F4U-1D of VMF-312
July 25, 2013 in Aviation
Here’s the second of my recent Corsair projects. Built to represent a USMC Corsair from VMF-312 while based on Okinawa in the spring of 1945. “530” was flown by several pilots, including 1stLt Merritt O. Chance. The rising sun markings may be fictitious since I’ve only seen them on an artist’s profile and have no photos of the port side. Only additions were tape belts, antenna wires, and ignition harness.
