While working on the two armor kits I recently posted I listened to the Audible version of Tom Cleaver’s Holding the Line, a Book about the naval air war in Korea. The book was very enjoyable and inspired me to build a Korean War Corsair. I went with the Hasegawa 1/48 F4U-5N.
This one turned out to be a bit of a chore for a Hasegawa kit. The biggest problem was that the front fuselage was very slightly mis-molded which, like falling dominoes, led to other fit problems along the way. I persevered anyway and I’m very happy with the final product. I’m thinking a Panther or Skyraider will be my next Korean War subject.
