Tamiya 1/48th Scale F4U-D Corsair build in process

Well I guess a lot of us are building Corsairs so I guess I will share my progress on the kit I am building.

This scale kit is pretty fun so far. I am adding in lots of details as I go. I will do the folded wing version to make it a little more interesting.

So far the kit builds pretty easy without many issues, it kinda lacks in detail which kinda surprised me, but maybe I am just really picky! I am getting ready to get into the fuselage so we will see how much filling and sanding I will have to do.

I will add updates to this article as I get along.

Stay tuned!
