Revell 1:48 kit of the U.S. Marines F4U-4 Corsair VMA-332, USS Bairoko (CVE-115)
At Korea, July 1953. This is the second assembly of this model in approximately 6 months. Only on the other one, I used the decals for the Black Sheep Squadron VMF-214. I wanted to see if this purchase required as much cutting, sanding and cursing as the first one that I put together. It did, as I am convinced that after assembling models of all descriptions and manufacturers for about 65 years off and on, save for the years that I was in the Navy, that this is the worst model that Revell has ever put into the mould. I know it’s old and is not that expensive, but anyone thinking about assembling this as a novice and with a child, should never consider doing that. Modeling is fun, correct?
