1/48 Minicraft F4U-4B VMF-323 Korea
This F4U-4B has all the same modifications as my other F4U-4B here on Imodeler, except that the wings are not folded, and I have used a flap set from the Verlinden F4U-4 detail set for the Hasegawa kit.
The weapons are 1000 lb bombs from the Hasegawa late corsair kits, 250lb bombs from the Monogram F9F Panther kit, and two very small bombs found in the Eduard F6F kit. The etch fins for these almost had me losing my eyesight!
I have no idea what they are, flares or some other type of marking ordnance, but if someone could enlighten me as to what they are I would be grateful. I have seen small bombs like these in some Korean F4U-4B pictures as part of a mixed load, so I took a chance in using them.
Thanks for looking!
