1/32 Corsair Questions
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, March 4, 2003 8:35 AM
Hi Guys.

Getting ready to build the 1/32 corsair kit from Revell that I've had stashed for a few years in my closet. I was wondering which cockpit set would be a better buy? The Black Box or the Verlinden?

Also, I noticed a "Future Release" on another web site for a 1/32 Corsair from Trumpeter. Anybody know anything about this?
Thanks.

You may want to pick up a copy of Verlinden Publications "Modeling, Detailing, Painting, Weathering WWII Aircraft Vol. III". It has a brief article with some excellent photos of the Verlinden set. It looks pretty good. I don't know anything about the Black Box set though. Here's a link to the review of the Black Box set. What I don't see are the classic pedal troughs

As for the Trumpeter... hard to say. Hopefully they'll do a better job than they did on the F4F, although they did recall that one. Guessing, I would say it will be a more detailed kit than the Revell and include recessed lines. Stay tuned!

Here's another article about the Revell kit with a Black Box cockpit set. I still don't see the pedal troughs though.

  If you would listen to everybody about the inaccuracies, most of the kits on your shelf would not have been built Too Close For Guns, Switching To Finger

Corsair, Hmm, think I have some blueprints around here somewhere. Also read in a book (Hell in the Heavens by Capt. John M Foster USMCR) that VF-17 was using shorter than standard props from one of the Grumman cats. I,ll hunt up those prints if you are interested.
