  1. Beautifully midelled, Artur. I like the display base as well – very creative.

  2. Really nice Artur, especially good pics hard to tell it’s not an actual Corsair

  3. Arguably, one of THE best engineered/manufactured kits out there (top ten, at least). Very nice job on that outdoor photography as well.

  4. A Goldie Locks build. I like the weathering,the paint job and chipping or the bare metal flaking over the leading edge oil coolers. Whats the story behind this a/c? Was the front have painted a darker color or was this aircraft the result of putting two Corsairs together? B-17s where where commonly given used parts or grafted together.

  5. Hello Artur….Congratulations to you on a fine modeling job of an equally fine kit. Your weathering effects and photography are outstanding. You have a winner there. Very nice indeed.

  6. You know I don’t have the room for 32nd scale aircraft though I do have like 4 of them in the stash, (larger jets, F-4,F/A-18) but yet also Revell’s older Corsair & P-47. But the reviews and seeing builds like your Corsair from Tamiya is very inspirational. Not having the room at this time is not an excuse to pick one up and also the Zero as well. Thanks for sharing an amazing kit, unique and quite well represented.

  7. Nicely done, Artur. You really nailed the wear on the wing roots.

  8. Beautifully done! Love everything about it.

  9. Excellent work! Love the outside photos.

  10. This is a beautiful Corsair !!! I really like it………. Great job.

  11. You’ve made the best of a great kit here, Artur, I can only confirm the comments above, but, what an example of international modelling! I’m not sure where you are situated, but I’m guessing somewhere in what used to be known as Eastern Europe, you’ve built a Japanese kit of an American aircraft in New Zealand colours on a Swedish website being admired by an Englishman living in China!

  12. I really like the weathering – the chipping, oil stains, etc. Very realistic. Nice work!

  13. Nice one Artur. I especially like your weathering. NZ Corsairs always seem to look scruffy & you’ve captured it perfectly.
