Group build of Korea : The Forgotten War………..

February 14, 2022 · in Aviation · · 9 · 1.1K

From the Author:

The kit is 's F4u-5N Corsair on a 1:48 scale. I add some photoetched parts, as well as some scratch building in the area of landing wheels and landing gear. It was my contribution to the group build of "Forgotten war". It was almost ready at the end of December 2021, but work responsibilities delayed finishing the project. My idea of mine was to build a heavily used aircraft. Therefore I used Heavy chipping fluid from Mig.

Due to the bad quality of the instruction, the biggest difficulty for me was assembling the engine. After a few hours of work, the effect could be considered eye-pleasing.
