Birdcage Corsair. 1/72 Hasegawa

March 8, 2015 in Aviation

I always wanted a F4U1 as a birdcage but, few years ago, the only kit available was the old but still good Hasegawa. I had just to rescribe it.
For now, I’m considering that I have been very strong and too far with the weathering….
Very Soon, I will show you it big brother, the Quarter Scale Tamiya kit with the same scheme 😉
When we love…..
Enjoy and have a great and sunny sunday

  1. Very nice. Love the birdcage. Great weathering. 🙂

  2. I don’t think that’s at all over-weathered. I’ve seen photos of models posted (and REAL aircraft as well), that make this one look factory fresh.
    If there were a way to post pictures in this reply format, I’d show ya.
    ( listening, Martin..)? 🙂

  3. Good looking “whistling death”….I don’t think your weathering is too overdone.

  4. A SUPERB Corsair Emmanuel. I like the weathering very much!!!

  5. Looks like it’s been on the ‘canal for a while. Just enough weathering, my 02 cents worth.
    Well done!
    Looking forward to your 1/48th.

  6. Done a nice job there Emmanuel.
    A well used bird.

  7. The weathering looks ok from here, and your modelling skills are very evident, this is brilliant in 1/72.

  8. I like it, including the weathering. Pacific birds seemed to take more of a beating, so works for me! Did you paint on the silver chipping, use salt technique, or something else?

  9. Nice to see another build from you. Looks great with a well done weathering.

  10. Emmanuel,
    Nice job. Love your Corsair
