Falconxlvi Posted May 11, 2020 Share Posted May 11, 2020 Model #2 for 2020 complete. Here is my 1:48 Tamiya F4U-1D modeled after the Boeing Museum’s FG-1D Corsair in Seattle, WA. This project kind of took on a life of it’s own. I started this project early last summer and got distracted by a few other projects along the way 😌. But, it’s finally done! Finish: Markings and insignia created with Maketar masks and MicroScale 45 ID numbers/letters. Archer fine transfers for placards and stencils. Paint is Mission Models Gloss Sea Blue (MMP-065) varnished with Tamiya X-22. Aftermarket: Vector cowl ring/exhaust flaps, EDUARD placards and steelbelts, Ultracast wheels, AK Lenses, Master 50 Caliber barrels, Quickboost gunsight Scratch: Wingfold hydraulic lines, navigation lights, fuel tank fuel filler cap, engine ignition wiring, landing gear bay wiring. Thanks for stopping by and all the encouragement along the way. The in-progress thread is located here and has better detail shots of the various sub-assemblies.
