This is my , a well known and excellent kit from . Everything OOB except for the masks for the canopy. No issues at all and the decals were really good. Hope you enjoy.

  1. Nice Corsair! Looks great,the red outlined insignia adds a bit of color.

  2. A real beauty! The paint and finish work is fantastic - well done!

  3. Great job on this classic kit.

  4. This is one of Tamiya's best kits - I rank it with the P-47s and the new Zeros for a "guaranteed good result." Thus, a modeler can concentrate on the "fun" part - painting and decals.

    Tommy Blackburn himself would love this model.
