Tamiya Vought F4U-1D Corsair 1/48

October 28, 2021 · in Aviation · · 13 · 1.5K

This is a great kit. Took me some months to finish it. I spend sometime trying to make it look old and used. Chipping was hard to do it. Sand color, white and black Chalk helped me to make it look dirty and also to cover some little mistakes. Also I attached an ellectric motor to make the propeller spin.
Hope you like it.

  1. Great work. The chipping and weathering is awesome. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks Dennis, your work is also great. That Tamiya P-38H Lightning 1/48 looks fantastic.
    Have a great one

  3. A fantastic build Enrique!
    Painting and weathering are truly exceptional.
    Welcome aboard!

  4. A warm welcome with this fantastic entry to iModeler, Enrique @quiquelopez
    It is obvious that this Corsair has seen quite some action already, nice weathering.

    • Thanks John. That´s the target, make them look like they where fighting hard in the war. And to achieve that sometimes takes a looooot of time, nights and beers. I´m still learning new techniques. By the way, your Henschel Hs129B2 looks great.
      Thanks again. Have a great day.

  5. A great build of what must be one of the most popular kits of all time. Welcome to iModeler.

  6. Welcome aboard. Well done, nice looking Corsair.

  7. Fantastic Corsair - love the paint and weathering work. Well done, and welcome aboard!

  8. Hi Greg thanks for your comment I appreciate it. I saw your work and is great. I haven´t done so far a 1/72 model because I think most to be hard to work with pieces so small. That is a double challenge, harder work.
    Have a good day

  9. Welcome Enrique! ? That is a lovely Corsair model; great work on that warbird! ?
