Tamiya’s 1/48th F4U-1A Corsair
Representing Lt Cdr John T Blackburn’s F4U-1A “Big Hog” as flown from Ondonga in November 1943 with VF-17.
The kit goes together beautifully, straight out of the box, as you’d expect from Tamiya.
I’ve built three so far with another two to go. I’ve tried to do a mid-level weathering job although my references show everything from absolutely sun bleached to freshly delivered!
