1/32 Corsair Tamiya
Posted by wpwar11 on Tuesday, March 8, 2022 4:33 AM

   Been forever since I posted something on this build.  Finally have it assembled and all the other bits completed.  Painted the primer on yesterday (not pictured) and ready for chipping colors to go down.  The gear strut, wheel, and doors were weathered with AK dust effects.  The propeller got black paint then salt technique grey.  It's a bit heavy as I probably made one to many passes with the grey.  I'm still reasonably happy with it.  Sponge chipping and silver pencils were used for chipping/scratches.

please comment with any helpul criticism.  This is going to be a gift for my brother.  I started last August in hopes for completion for his December birthday.  Maybe I'll make December this year?

Your Corsair progress is moving along and your weathered prop looks very good.  Seeing your build has convinced me to stop slugging along with these old 60s & 70s 1/32 scale aircraft kits that require a ton of time and filler and start on some quality Tamiya kits that are in the stash.  "Life is to short for "crappy" kits"

I couldn't agree more Mr. Tom.  I like To spend bench time painting and detailing assemblies instead of fixing a flawed kit.  It's a little pricey but this thing is a treat to work on.  Thanks for the compliment too.  

Cheers,

Paul

Looks great from where I'm sitting.  I don't think the prop is overdone in terms of your weathering.  And yeah, I think you can make the December birth date.
