Yet Another Corsair
First I did “I like jugs.” Then I created “Spitfirepalooza.” Now I'm on the edge of being obsessed with Corsairs and having to create a name for said obsession.
Here's my third Corsair of the year, the Tamiya 1/72 F4U-1D. This time I wanted to go for a clean look rather than the more worn appearance I did on the last two.
I used Mr. Hobby Aqueous Midnight Blue for the overall color. Using Mr. Color Leveling Thinner I got a very smooth glossy finish. Too much so. I tried Tamiya semi-gloss out of a rattle can to cut down the shine and I like the result.
Another great kit from Tamiya.
Wonderfully done. Build & finish spot-on.
This looks fantastic. Being obsessed with something can be a good thing imho!
Beautiful build! Love the checkerboard scheme on the Hog. I have this kit - need to get around to it...
Nice job, Scott!
Bent on Bent-wings or A Bent-wing Bender
Thanks, Gary. I will take those ideas under consideration!
You’re in the Corsaireizone. You’ve entered the Corsairidome. You’re building a Corsthedral. It’s a Corsaganza.
Awesome work! The dark colors are great but subtle. Great job on a beautiful plane.
Thanks, Dennis. Corsairganza is a possibility. I like it!
It's clear that your corsair obsession results in excellent builds, Scott @guitarhack5
Excellent work on this one.
A wonderful result, Scott!
Another awesome Corsair, nice job!
Nicely done Scott.
Corsairs usually look good and this one is no exception.
