Well I’ve gone and done it. I glued the wing hinges on the trumpeter model together so they’re not moveable. While this isn’t a deal killer, I was really looking to have it folded. Don’t ask how it happened. Any ideas? I’m lost. Does anyone sell 1:32 scale Corsair wing hinges? Model: Trumpeter 1:32 F4U-1D
Ok, question... fading the paint... I want to give the paint scheme and decals an overall “faded” look. I read that you can lightly wet down a model, sprinkle it liberally with rock salt, then spray a “filter layer” lightly over that. Brush away the salt when it dries and it gives a faded look. Has anyone tried this? Is there a better way?
I'm having no luck trying to locate information about whether the Corsair -1D model had a ground power receptacle anywhere on the / close to underside of the aircraft. Trying to find a good connect/disconnect point for a gussied-up 1/32 scale 21st Century Toys version into which I've inserted a slot car motor to power the prop. If anyone knows, PLEASE help! Thanks
