Hallo. This is not only my first Group Build, but also my first attempt in managing a topic... I hope that everything will be fine!

The kit I chose is the Tamiya F4U-1D.

A picture of the box and the trees:


In the cockpit, I added some seat belts from Eduard



I tried to enhance the engine adding some cables


Today I glued the fuselage and wings halves. It's time for putty and sanding... (fit is almost perfect, it will not take a long time).

That is probably the best OOB cockpit I have ever seen! Really well done! I love those Airscale decals (I tried to get them to sponsor this group build but they wouldn't bite!)

Keep it up - I would love to see more.

Thank everybody for the compliments! I think that the photoetched seatbelts and Airscale decals (CorsairMan, you're right, they are great!!!) help to achieve a more realistic result.

I apologize for not replying before to the posts, but I had to work really hard in the last two months. I could hardly find some times to carry on working on the Corsair.

I'm sorry I could not add more in-progress photos. This evening I finished the model, but I have to wait until saturday totake some photos of it during the day. However, before starting the final assembling, I took the folowing images. Hope you like them, even if their quality is not very good...!!!
