Yet Another Corsair

May 12, 2023 · in Aviation · · 12 · 402

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 of the year, the . 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.
