Navy Revolt…1/48 Vought F4U-5 Corsario, Comando de Aviacion Naval Argentina

Another latin girl from 2016.

Hasegawa F4U-5N kit, Aztec decals, True Details cockpit, Gunze and Tamiya acrylics, EZ Line for brake lines and antenna wire, the “T” antenna on the belly was taken from the ancient Hasegawa F4U-4 kit.

The model shows one of the dayfighter Corsairs that were involved in the Argentinean Navy revolution attempt in 1963 when they defended their base against the army. The last Argentinean Corsairs were retired in 1965.
