1/72nd Hawk F4U-1D

A good friend recently gifted me with an old 1/72nd Hawk F4U-1D Corsair kit. Since I had built many of them in my earlier years of modeling (the original kits came out around 1959), I figured I'd go ahead and give it a shot. The kit is basic-bas[...]

HobbyBoss F4U-4 Corsair, 1/48. A Small Build Review of Sorts.

The Hobbyboss kit is proof that newer isn't necessarily better, but as an old Hasegawa F4U-4 was the first model I built upon returning to the hobby I felt that 3 years later it was time to have a stab at another F4U-4. In fact, I decided to bui[...]

Hi everyone, this time, I built yet another Corsair. I wanted to make it more detailed so I used Eduard PE seatbelts and resin wheels. I also wanted to open up one wing and add in a gunbay. I wasn’t able to find any resin gunbays but I did have [...]

F4U-4 Corsair – Hasegawa 1/48

Hello! This is a kit I finished around 2006. I remember I used a Verlinden resin and photo-etch detail set for the first time to show one wing folded and the inside of the gun bay on the other wing. I remember doing a lot of cutting and sanding [...]
