Academy 1/48th Corsair
November 5, 2013 in Aviation
I’m almost ashamed to even post this after seeing Rob’s beautiful Corsair, but coincidentally enough, I was working on this when he posted his earlier. I have another Academy Corsair ready to start (albeit a different version) and will be adding yet another Corsair to the shelf probably by next weekend.
I much prefer Tamiya’s kits, but I got a lot of 7 models last month pretty cheap. The Wildcat I posted a few days ago was the only Tamiya in the bunch.
This kit was literally an “out-of-the-box” build – nothing was used that Academy didn’t already provide. It took me about a week, working off and on, here and there. Pretty straightforward stuff. I did use an ill-fitting canopy mask set, however (it was for a different kit and was close, but not perfect).
