1/48 Hasegawa F4U-4 Corsair, NAS Miami
It’s been a while since I have posted an article with a completed build here on Imodeler. I have been very busy lately, with the Midway group build, and some projects going on out in the work shop.
The other day my wife and I were in a craft store, and she ran across this really cool poster board that has nothing but clouds on it. That’s when my wife said, “Hey, this would look pretty neat as a background when you take pictures of your model planes.”
(She’s definitely a keeper).
So I decided to give it a try. I think she was right. Now I will eventually have to build a base for photographing my planes on. Something to represent a grassy field or a runway of some sorts…
Here’s a few pictures of one of my older F4U-4 Corsair builds with the new poster as a background… See what you think.
This plane was built sometime back in the late 1990’s. It has had the landing gear repaired after a mishap during a move. One of the wheels were broken off. Overall it has held up pretty good.
I saw the markings for the NAS Miami, and since I’m from Florida, (born and raised) I just had to build it.
It’s pretty much right out of the box…
