  1. Nicely done Brian, are those kit figures or after market? Both look great.

  2. Nice clean build! Looks great.

  3. Nice looking diorama, those figures (especially the pilot) look terrific! I was wondering what colour is the PSP, a rather worn metal or some grey(ish) metal? I have one to paint and have no idea where to go with it

    • The PSP was actually painted Olive Drab at the factory. It would quickly "ding,", collect dirt, oil spills etc. This is a diorama of the cleanest airfield in the Solomons. 🙂

      • No doubt about that Tom, thanks for the hint about the PSP colour, much appreciated!

        • The real stuff was also very heavy Pedro... @holzhamer
          Each piece weighed close to 100 pounds ! My Dad had some sections of it. We used it to help move vehicles around when the yard was soaked from rain when I was a kid. The stuff is virtually indestructible...and very useful as a traction device for vehicles.

  4. I like it a lot, Brian!
    Figures look amazing too!

  5. Nice job, Brian. I like the paint job.

  17. Great looking Corsair. Really liked the paint job and how the three lights came out on the underside of the wing.

  18. The bent-wing bird is my favorite, and your rendition is a beauty!
