Eduard F4F-3 Wildcat, 1/48. 'The Navy's First Ace'

Following Eduard's amazing 2022 new tooling of the infamous A6M2, I eagerly looked forward to their rendition of the Wildcat and this kit certainly doesn't disappoint. Unsurprisingly the first Wildcat Eduard releases is the F4F-3, [...]

Eduard A6M2 Type 0, Model 21, 1/48. 'Saburō Sakai's Longest Mission'.

On August 7th 1942, Ace Pilot Saburō Sakai underwent his most legendary mission and would narrowly survive being shot in the head by the rear gunner of a Dauntless dive bomber. Escorting Japanese bombers to Guadalcanal, Sakai first [...]

This is Fox One: Outstadning!

Finally the sun came out over the Gilbert Islands. After a tropical hurricane and heavy rains, the weather improved and flights resumed. After a short briefing, where the group commander known under the nickname "The Old Guy" [...]

Tamiya F4U-1A, 1/48. Two Planes in One.

The final aircraft from the Corsair trio build is one that represents the 3rd largest operator of the Corsair, the Royal New Zealand Air Force whom operated the type from land bases in 1944/45. In 1942 the RNZAF began to operate in [...]

Tamiya F4U-1C, 1/48. The Sky Pirates.

One omission from the plethora of Corsair models out there is the F4U-1C, in fact there isn't even a company that offers a resin conversion set for this type. Not wanting to miss out on the only -1 variant I haven't yet built I decided to [...]

Tamiya F4U-1A Corsair, 1/48. Ira Kepford's Jolly Roger.

I've always loved the Corsair, particularly the mid-war four-tone scheme, and last year I built my first one which was Tom Blackburn's 'Big Hog'. A year later I wanted to do a new Corsair because I felt my skills had improved and I wanted [...]

Tamiya F4U-1A Corsair, 1/48. The Big Hog.

I thought I'd finally get around to posting this Corsair I built last year, making it so all my Corsairs are uploaded here in one form or another. This model in particular taught me a lot and I am planning on basically remaking it (but as [...]

Academy 1/700 USS Enterprise aka The Grey Ghost aka The Big E

Today is the 79th anniversary of the climatic day of the Battle of Midway so here is a review of a build in honor of today. FYI, I did publish the original photo as part of my collection of PTO models but did not submit the entire review [...]

Tamiya F4U-1D Corsair, 1/48. A Folded Bird.

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 [...]

Tamiya F4U-1 Birdcage Corsair, 1/48.

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 [...]
