1/72nd Hawk F4U-1D
A good friend recently gifted me with an old 1/72nd Hawk F4U-1D Corsair kit. Since I had built many of them in my earlier years of modeling (the original kits came out around 1959), I figured I’d go ahead and give it a shot. The kit is basic-basic with a whopping total of around 20 parts. The only addition to the build was a set of TD wheels that I found in the after market stash box. The F4U-1D is finished in MM GSB and carries the markings of a VBF-6 Corsair from the USS Hancock late in WWII. Strictly a nostalgia fun build. I’m betting that many of our ‘senior’ modelers have, like myself, built a few of these in years gone by along with Hawk’s Texan and Dauntless and a few of their other offerings.
