Chance Vought F4U-7 Corsair Revell/Hasegawa in 1/48 scale
September 6, 2014 in Aviation
Hi, here is another walkaround from a kit of my collection, this time it is my F4U-7. The mouldings are from Hasegawa, sold by RoG for a good price and with very nice decals.
The combination between the glossy dark sea blue and the yellow/black stripes from Operation Musketeer ( Operation Mousquetaire) was a “must” for me.
According to Revell this one was from the 12. Flottille Aéronavale.
Hasegawas late mark Corsair goes nicely together, but it is in the cockpit very much a -5N
nightfighter. The stripes are the kit decals, this has worked even before i began to use softeners.
Build a few years ago, i replaced the antenna from new stetched sprue, made some retouches here and there. At one point in the near future i will add the rockets and
some new wheels, the wheels out of the box look too thin for my eyes.and a new exhaust staining as well
Presenting older kits, is always a trip in the past.
I hope you like it
