Rnzaf f4u-1d

Outstanding 1/48 Tamiya kit finished with equally outstanding decals from Aeromaster's RNZAF special package. You really can't go wrong with a Tamiya Corsair.

AU-1 Corsair 1/48 Monogram conversion

Yet another installment of long ago modelling. A Chance Vought AU-1 Corsair built from the Monogram F4U-4 kit over 27 years ago! This model was built to compete in a local contest that had the 'Korean War' as a show theme. The AU-1 was chose[...]

Tamiya 1/48 F4U-2

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 took up the challenge of a few commission builds, for a chap who builds R/C. His mission brief was for reference kits in 1:48th of RNZAF a/c used in the PTO. Normally his preference was for moderate weathering. However, due to the Pacific cond[...]

F2G Super Corsair Racer Kit Bash

This was one of my first forays into AMS and kit bashing. I started with a Special Hobbies 1/48 F2G Racer, and added the wings from an Academy 1/48 F4U-1A, because I wanted the flaps down, and I wasn't about to chop up a Tamiya kit. I do reali[...]
