Vought F4U-1D Corsair – US Navy VF-84 – USS Bunker Hill – Febr.1945

Bonjour chers iModelers,

I am glad to introduce my latest model, a very classic Corsair from VF-84, but I wanted it on my shelf.
It is the well-known Tamiya kit which is, despite of its age, a more than excellent kit.

My first try with chipping fluid. So far, so good, I learnt how to use it (did I say I had to repaint three times the yellow ring because paint on chipping fluid hate to receive any masking tape?…)

Acrylic paints (Mr Hobby Aqueous, Mr Color and Tamiya). Everything is from the box except decals which come from a Techmod sheet (Art. no. 48068).

Thanks for watching, and enjoy!
