1/32 Tamiya F4U-1 Birdcage

October 1, 2017 in Aviation

Another recently completed build. 1/32 Tamiya F4U-1 birdcage built OOB with Eagle Edition decals. I entered it in the annual Sproo-Do model contest and show and it took a gold and Best Box Stock.

  1. Well done Lloyd, good looking bent wing bird. And congratulations on your awards,both well deserved.

  2. Nice work. You got the chalking and weathering just right.

  3. Very nicely done. Award was well deserved.

  4. Easy to see why it took gold….congratulations, sir.

  5. It took best OOB? It SHOULD have.

    Great job, Lloyd! Beautifully done!

  6. A remarkable build of my all time favorite plane. Nicely done Sir !!

  7. Hey, Lloyd, you’ve been busy, this Corsair looks great, and it looks like the judges at the competition thought so, too. Congratulations on your award.

  8. Excellent – looks like a very war-weary bird pelted by the S. Pacific sun! I had hoped to get over for Sproo-do, but the little woman put her foot down (traveled to too many contests in recent months…) Yes – I passed my obedience training with flying colors!
