The ultimate Corsair to see service in the Second World War was the F4U-4. The first prototype XF4U-4 took flight on April 19, 1944, followed quickly by four other prototypes. The airplane was powered by the R2800-18W, an excellen[...]
Latest off the bench as part of Jeffrey Kolln's @421stwidow Night Fighter Group is Cpt Eugene Derrickson's VMF(N)-513 Corsair. The -5 Corsair was considered the ultimate model in the Corsair line, with the -5N adding a radar dome, extra radio an[...]
Having seen a photo of a F4U-4 Corsair in unusual markings I was motivated to attempt to model that plane. The final shot in this presentation is of the actual plane used as the basis of the build. That Corsair was a F4U-4 from VBF-81 in war ga[...]
Afternoon folks, here's another older build and another Corsair, this time it was my first attempt at trying to handle the ANA 623 Sea Blue.
This Corsair was built alongside my previous post, the Birdcage F4U-1, and was started early April [...]
The first of many Tamiya Corsairs I did was this one, built alongside an F4U-1D. I started this back in April last year and completed in just 3 weeks, which is a record for me but that is largely due to having plenty of time off due to lockdow[...]

The crew takes you to record what happened, they give you food, and when you return your plane is vandalized with jokes and paint.
I have always wanted to repres[...]
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[...]
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[...]
What inspires you to choose a kit or a scheme? For this model it was a post on this very forum that is a large reason.
My long term goal is to build a Corsair of every variant in 1/48, starting from the simple F4U-1 by Tamiya and ending in a sc[...]
After getting more into the hobby and posting on a few other places, I've decided to make an account here and post my most recent builds. Critique is always important, and keeping confined to one forum or social media can limi[...]
