Part 3 F2G Corsair Cockpit.
This is my final rendition of the 1/32 scale F2G Cockpit. Some photo’s have different dates on them. Another modeler who had his own “cast-resin” company and I got together and I made some “master” parts, then he cast them for me. He and his business partner sold a 1/32 scale F2G conversion kit which fit with the old 1/32 scale F4U-1A kit.
The unpainted finished cockpit slid into the fuselage and was glued in place. The right side of the model was not painted ’cause I wanted to show what I did to it when I took it to 2 of our IPMS/USA monthly club meeting and to some of the contest’s here in Northern California. All of the red/black and unpainted handles moved just like in the real airplane. I did not make the foot pedals, nor the canopy movable.
Remember that an American “penny” is only 19mm/3/4″ in diameter which let’s you know that some of my hand made parts are SMALL!
