1/48th Tamiya F4U-1A ‘Sally’
June 9, 2014 in Aviation
Years back, I read an article in Air Classics telling the story of ‘Sally’. That Corsair was a salvage job constructed from the remains of several Corsair hulks from the boneyard by mechanics of Marine Service Squadron Eleven out in the South Pacific. The plane was used as a squadron hack and was eventually given the tri-color paint scheme. It did not see combat use and in fact, carried no guns. The Tamiya F4U-1A model is an OOB build with the exception of the weighted wheels and custom decals. It was airbrushed with MM Aluminum and flat black. This model dates back several years but I wanted to share it with the folks at imodeler.
