Another Tamiya kit at 1/48 scale (all my aircraft models are at the same scale…) It belongs to US Navy VF-17 Jolly Rogers at Pacific Theatre of Operations in 1944.

Chance Vought F4U Corsair
I suspect most any modeler who has been at it for a while decides to take on a challenge to do something a bit off the beaten track. I’ve always been attracted to the F4U Corsair and have lost track […]
I just cannot build enough F4U’s, especially the later version models such as this “-5N”. This particular model was sitting in my stash for over 10 years. I had passed it over many times because it was just a “Monogram” […]

Tamiya F4U-1D done. Three months elapsed time, about 120 hours work, and I missed SMW by a week, oh well there’s always next year! What a superb kit! This one is being featured in a three part special in MAI […]
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.
