Tamiya 1/72 scale F4U-1 Corsair
January 19, 2017 in Aviation
“Marines Dream”, has always been one of those scheme’s I’ve always wanted in my display case. The decals are BarracudaCals (sheet #BC72152). A great decal sheet !
I added some Eduard PE seatbelts and wired the engine, “this can cause blindness in 1/72 scale”.
The kit canopy sits too high in the open position. Being too cheap to buy an aftermarket replacement, (I like to think I’m more of modeler purist this way), I took the kit canopy and thinned it down by sanding the inside area and then re-polishing it until it fit as it should.
A special thanks to Dave Hansen and Jim Sullivan who were a tremendous help on this project.
