  1. This was a "Out of Box" project. This kit I will recommend as not a difficult build but loaded with nice items such as Missiles nice interior,Great Decals. This is my first attempt at a F-14 and their interesting "wear" schemes. Kit decals were by Cartograf and worked very well. Paint was Vallejo for most part with Gunze used for the Cockpit exterior section. Final finish was Testors "Dull-Coat" decanted. A friend of mine with aircraft photography said dirty and flat is accurate. Most photos I found verify this. Thanks for Looking Comments Welcome Regards Bill

  5. Thanks Gil Amazing the difference in looks,folded VS straight. I believe weathering requires artistic talents I am challenged to obtain. I envy your skill in this area.Reason I tend to build clean. cheers Bill
  6. Thank You Randall I suggest taking one of those Corsair kits and spend a few days..This is a fall together kit and you will enjoy the build. Cheers Bill
  7. This aircraft was flown by Marines in Ground support for Army in 1945 in Philippines. This is the 1/48th Tamiya kit Gil mentions in his build below. Great Kit and a nice relief for some well engineered model. Some basic stuff, Testors Spray Gloss Blue(Decanted),Mr Hobby Semi-Gloss (Decanted), Eduard Seatbelts, filled step in starboard dropped Flap. Only color was Green in a couple of places. Uschi fine line used for Antennas Thanks for Looking Comments Welcome Cheers Bill

  9. Thanks Guys Tamiya Corsair already started. Decals from F√ľndekal newest sheet with "F4U & FG Corsairs part 2 ""Whistling Death" VMF -211 Markings from 1945.Obtained at Phoenix Nationals Cheers Bill
  10. This is my next to last build for the VMF(A) -211. I had custom markings created for this aircraft as it belonged to the Commander. I loved the RAM Decals from WOLFPACK...These were absolutely perfect This was a very well engineered model and defects were self induced. I didn't have the heart to load up the wings with racks. So I left her stealthy. I have completed the Wildcat,Skyraider,Skyhawk,Harrier,and the F-35B. The CF markings are a Little large on the tail but not detracting. Last project for this group is the F4U-1D Corsair. Start Tonight Thanks for Looking Comments are always welcome Cheers Bill
  11. Thank You Dick Cheers Bill
  12. Thank You Guys for your Positive comments Bill
  13. I wanted a little bit of a challenge after a Tamiya 1/72nd P-51 I got exactly what I asked for. Challenges Vallejo Olive Drab and Tamiya rattle-can Camel Yellow colors were the only simple items. The basic parts all had flash,All need some sort of work Struts needed trimming and pins inserted for support. Landing Gear parts were all needing trimmed and adjusted and I think I still missed the mark. Rigging was all steel wire to simulate the metal braces I will say the resin engine cylinders needed minimal cutting. I did add Albion tubing and copper plug wires Tons of stuff but just posted Final results Cheers Bill
  14. Thanks Gil That is Xtracrylic PRU Blue. Just a change from OD/Neutral gray. Upcoming P-47 will be OD/NG Cheers
  15. I reversed the props after other feedback
