Another unusual looking aircraft. I got to see one at an airshow quite awhile ago. It was civilian, white, and "for sale". I was impressed with the white paint job, and had to duplicate it. Since then I've seen this aircraft in many unusual [...]
My first post of this nature was so well received, that I thought I'd share some final shots with you all. Again, these were taken at local, regional and even national shows. Matter of fact, if I recall, that Bronco won best of show at the Nats [...]

I received my new Tamiya F4U-1 Birdcage Corsair a few weeks ago and I've been making steady progress on it. The thing that strikes me the most with this kit is just how well engineered this kit is. The first picture shows all the major assemblie[...]
