  1. Interesting to compare this with Dan’s postings on this page, it seems you can’t go wrong with a Corsair, they all look great, including this one.

  2. USS Bunker Hill I believe ,great weathering ,she looks so tough and rugged, great work.
    N.

  3. What a beautiful weathering job!
    You made my day.
    Hat off!

  4. Extremely good weathering.

  5. Krzysztof, this is a marvel. The graduations in the sea blue are lovely. Quite often the undercarriage is where a model will take a hit but the care you’ve put into those areas speaks of patience and detail.

    Bravo.

  6. “Rode hard and put away wet”, huh…? Excellent craftsmanship, sir. Can’t go wrong with those Tamiya Corsairs! 🙂

  7. Excellent, work in doing the weathering. What technique did you use to do the chipping and flaking ? Looks more involved than using the salt method.

  8. Another beauty, Krzysztof! You’ve been quite busy, lately.

  9. That’s definitely one of the most impressive weathered corsair I’ve ever seen!

  10. Impressive work indeed.

  11. Excellent result! I’ve not seen a Corsair weathered quite so heavily, but it looks fantastic.

  12. Can I ‘like’ this twice?

  13. I can just say….amazing! Brilliant work on this gorgeous airplane!
