Tamiya 1/48th F4U Corsair

This, along with Tamiya’s P-47M, has got to be one of their best efforts. If there were ever that “perfect kit”, these have to be amongst the forefront. The fit, detail and quality are par excellance – my opinion of course. But I think most (if not all) who have had the pleasure of building these kits, would agree. Normally, I wouldn’t have constructed a wing-fold kit in this configuration, but this one cried out for it. i just hope I did it justice. This model represents no single aircraft in particular – simply a rendition I thought appropriate.
