I love the Corsair, and I particularly enjoy building Tamiya Corsairs. This was my first folded wing corsair. I used pictures from the Osprey book on Corsair aces (This aircraft was on the USS Enterprise) to help me to paint this one. It is the [...]
I present my build of the Classic Airframes Widgeon.
