F4U-4 Corsair 1/48 Revell Kit 5248

Well here she is.....a couple of goofs...but I love the look. 

Nice kit. Fit was good. Detail was a bit lacking. All the movable parts were a mixed bag. They normally are on a Corsair kit. 

I will say this...the Testor Model Master paints....well...they don't like my air brush. Everytime I use them(thinned/flow enhancer/etc) they gum it up. Grrrrr...lol

Nice build. Haven't seen a retracting gear build in a while. They're great for dogfighting with pigeons. Hehe

That’s a great rendition of a classic kit!

Thanks! 

I did make a few mistakes....but not bad for my 4th model back in like 25 years...also new with a air brush. 

I was really wanting to make it Pappy's Plane....I'm a HUGE Corsair fan. I was doing some research when I found out something that I really didn't know. When Pappy's VMF-214 were flying in the Pacific, they really didn't have "assigned" planes. I read where they would just pile into a jeep and jump out and get in whatever plane was available. I don't know how much truth there is in that, but I do know that Pappy was "photographed" in planes....whether or not those were they actual ones....I don't know.
