F4U-1D Corsair & Moto Tug.

September 16, 2017 in Aviation

This is the Tamiya 1/48th F4U-1D Corsair which came with a motor tug.
I used the kit decals, and painted the model with Aeromaster Acrylics.
The base is made of Perspex, which I painted black from below. After engraving the base, I filled in the letters using a yellow chinagraph pencil.

  1. Beauty! Well detailed and painted, Julian.

  2. Great build! Congratulations Julian!

  3. Nice job on that, Julian….the build, the base, the photography and that pilot (very realistic). Those Tamiya Corsairs are sweet, aren’t they?

  4. I’m blown away by the base, let alone the brilliant Corsair! Together they are fantastic. Great workmanship – combined with the Tug they take it to another level!

  5. Julian, beautiful job. Can’t go wrong with a Tamiya Corsair. The mototug adds to it, diorama in a box. I think they used the tug into Korea on carriers.

  6. Nice work on a classic kit, and the base really adds to the overall look.

  7. This is a wonderful model of my favorite plane !!!!! I Love it……………

  8. πŸ™‚ … Greetings … πŸ™‚ :
    Very nice work Julian. The lights add a real good touch not seen much.in my personal opinion ( the reason I have two kits of these still not even opened ) is the figure. I just love it when a pilot figure, sitting or standing is included. It adds life and a sense of scale and size.
    Good work Julian.

  9. Hi,

    Nice and clean job πŸ˜‰
    Bravo

  10. Beautifully done Julian, really like the base too.

  11. Julian, who says Corsairs don’t have a reverse !, Very nicely done !
