Hobby Boss 1/48 F4U-7
I built this as a tribute to a fellow modeller who passed away last December, one day short of his 26th birthday. He wanted to build this aircraft as it had an interesting history: serving with the French Aeronavale, one of the aircraft in the T.V. series “Baa Baa Black Sheep”, privately owned in Alberta, Canada and finally at the Heritage Aircraft LCC. The Hobbyboss kit is very nice to put together but there are issues. The wings are modelled as fabric when they were metal at this stage. Actuators on the elevators and rudder need removed.
