  1. Hello all I've got a Tamiya 1/32 F4U-1A Corsair up for sale. It came from Japan to me with no outer wrapping, but all inner bags (except the instructions, which I opened) are sealed and everything is in perfect condition. I also have the Eduard wheel hub and canopy mask for it that I am including. I am asking for $140.00 shipped. Due to the size of the box, I'd like to keep this within CONUS if possible. The only trade I am looking for is a 1/32 Tamiya F4U-1D in like condition. Thank you for looking. If interested in purchase or trade, please PM me and we can go from there. Aaron
  2. I have a 1/32 Tamiya F4U-1A Corsair that is NIOB that I would like to trade straight across for a Tamiya F4U-1D in the same condition. If there is anyone that is interested in such a trade, please respond to this post or PM me and we can discuss details of the trade. Thank you. Aaron
  3. Looking great so far. I am really enjoying following this build. Keep up the good work and the updates please! Aaron
  4. I've got the KA Models open exhaust for the Academy/Revell/Great Wall Hobby kit up for sale. This is the set with the exhaust only, not the AB tube and exhaust. parts are brand new, never been opened. Asking $18.00 plus actual shipping. PM me if interested. Aaron
  5. When are these going to be available to order Dave? Aaron
  6. Hello all I've got the Eduard Brassin F4U wheels and prop for sale. The wheels can be used on any variant of the Corsair. They have a diamond tread and look excellent. The prop comes from the Big Sin set for the F4U-1D, and is thicker than the props used on the earlier models. I'm pretty sure that in 1/32 scale you could probably get away with using it on an earlier model and no one would be the wiser, but it IS designed for the -1D. I'm asking for $20.00 for the set, shipped to anywhere in the US or Canada. Paypal is easiest, but I'm open to other means of payment (US cash or check for instance) as well. Aaron
  7. Loving this build so-far Bee. Looking forward to more progress. As I said, I have a P-51 in the stash as well, so I'm following this build closely for suggestions and inspiration. Aaron
  8. Bee I saw your build, and want to commend you on the excellent job you did. I'm actually going to be using yours as a "template" for mine when I get to it, and I am now following along with your F-51 build. Thank you for your response as well. I think I'm going to go ahead and stick with the -1A. The whole reason why I got started on the Corsair, believe it or not, was the Disney/Pixar movie Planes and the character Skipper, who talks about flying with the VF-17 "Jolly Wrenches". I found some decals for VF-17's -1A's, so I think I'm going to use those. This build is more for my wife than me, as she is the one who really loves the sight and sound of Skipper. I'm going to be taking her up to Everett this summer, where Paul Allen's FHCAM has a real Corsair in his collection and let her watch it fly. Anyway, thank you for the answer. I appreciate it. Good luck on your continued Mustang build. I've got a Stang in the stash too, so I'm watching that one with interest as well. Aaron ps. where did you buy your paints for your Corsair build at, and what kind were they again?
  9. Hello all I ordered the Big Sin set for the F4U-1D and (accidentally) bought the F4U-1A on E-bay. I have the decals, masking set, etc. for the -1D all ready for the build, but if I decided to replace the decals and the masking set for the -1A version, rather then selling/trading for the -1D, and still use the Big Sin cockpit and engine sets, would I be grossly inaccurate? How much of a difference is there between the two cockpits, especially in 1/32 scale? If there are any big, noticeable differences, what are they? Any help is appreciated. Thank you. Aaron
  10. Hello all I just grabbed one of these from Spruebrothers today, and a wondering what denotes an early-production B-17G, and what A/M markings that currently exist could be used on the HK kit. Any suggestions? My knowledge on Flying Fortresses is pretty limited, so whatever you guys can tell me is welcome. I would kind of rather do a camo version vs BMF, but am open to those as well. Aaron
