Tamiya 1/32 FAA F4U-1 Birdcage Corsair
The Corsair is my favourite aircraft of all time. I used to watch the show “Black Sheep Squadron” with my dad when I was a kid. The show was kind of terrible but I loved it and the vintage footage of corsairs and zeros was amazing to me at the time – even though they used the same shots over and over. Anyway, B-17s are my second favourite aircraft so it was quite a coincidence when Tamiya released their 1/32 Corsair and HKM released their 1/32 B-17 around the same time. Needless to say, I was really excited since I love to build 1/32 aircraft. It didn’t take me long to buy and build the Corsair. I do have an HKM B-17 but I have no where to put it when its done. Some day I’ll build a big shelf for all my big kits but until then, it sits in the stash gathering dust.
