… or better P&W R-2800-8.
Encouraged by your feedback about posting the Birdcage cockpit I’m showing up with another assembly of Tamiya’s stunning 1/32 Vought Corsair.
Note that the exterior color of the cowl flaps is still equal to the interior one.
One thing really blows my mind about this kit and this company: the two upper exhaust sub-systems are connected to the engine, the four lower ones to the ground plate – as you can see in one of the pictures. And now look how they align when both groups are put together! The tolerance chain is really huge, but still you get a perfect fit of the six end pipes. You can’t really praise Tamiya enough for such precision.
The cooling fins of the cylinders are another example for outstanding degree of detail, especially evident with an oil wash applied to the left one.
Hope you like.
