I'm still in the middle of a Tamiya 1/48 P-38 G/F but with all the activity going on in the memorial build for Jim Sullivan I wanted to at least get my feet wet and get some progress underway with my entry.
I'll be building Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1a corsair in the markings of Maj. Marion Carl. Our friend @tom-bebout was kind enough to let me raid his stash of kits and even included some decals from Fundekals- Thank you Tom!
Work started in the cockpit- I used black primer, then zinc chromate, then interior green mixed with zinc chromate in an attempt to get some depth and color variation. Finished it off with some washes, dry brushing, and picking out various details with the brush.
I'm planning on adding seatbelts but am still undecided if I'll make my own from tape and various pe bits or just use a decal or perhaps even more ambitiously try and paint the pilot figure!
