Royal Navy Corsair II Tamiya 1/48
Always a favourite with me & I know I’m not alone. Tamiya do a superb kit here & I really like this colour scheme for the Fleet Air Arm. This one has the clipped wing tips necessary to fit (folded) in the hangar deck & represents an aircraft of 1834 Squadron operating from HMS Victorious in the British Pacific Fleet, probably in August 1945. The national markings were designed to be compatible with Corsairs of the USN by featuring the same white bars & removing all red centres. Decals are by Techmod.
This is my fourth Corsair & I have three more to go…..That’s true love.
