Very nice Brian. Excellent weathering. Really looks the part!

Looks like a member of TF 38 after 3 months of “The Big Blue Blanket”:killing kamikazes. Very realistic finish – the reason the Navy liked Glossy Sea Blue is it stuck to the airframe (unlike the paints in the tri-color scheme) and just loss the “glossy” under the tropic sun. Very nice.

Nice Corsair Brian. Your finish looks smooth as glass. Well done.

A Tamiya Corsair on the shelf of doom? I thought these kits were as near as perfect as could be. Whatever, you look to have done another great job on this one.

Hello Brian, you’ve produced a fine model of that F4U-1D in the markings of VBF-6 aboard USS Hancock. The faded and weathered finish looks great. Very well done. A nice carrier deck section beneath it would enhance it even more.

Jim i have a USS Hancock diorama planned. Got a Hellcat to do soon.
Brian, that would be a nice display to show them together. I look forward to your Hellcat build.
