(Yet another....) 1/48 Tamiya Corsair (-1A)

Recommended Posts

I had two of these kits 20 years ago or so, got one maybe half finished, then I don't remember what happened. But this is my "first" Tamiya Corsair build.


So far, so good. Buttoning up the fuselage is about the 3 or 4 hour mark, not exactly sure. Interior surfaces primed with Mr.Surfacer 1500 (black), then thin coats of an interior green mix I used, again Mr. Color (roughly half zinc chromate yellow and a light interior green). Wash is Tamiya dark grey panel line wash. Seat belts are just painted masking tape.


With the engine, I sparyed Mr Color gloss black, the dumped most of the black paint, the added a couple of drops of Alclad II aluminum, then sprayed a couple of light spritzes.

Another hour or two's progress. Mr Surfacer 1500 as a preliminary gage on how much more filling and sanding will be needed before final prime coat and painting.
