1/48th Hasegawa F4U-4 from a very long time ago. Still around I think.

Love the weathering! The Corsair looks just right in those colours!  :thumbsup:


I agree, those colours definately suit it :wub:

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.


Looks suitably battered!  Good to see some photos Terry! :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.


I can see I'm going to be very happy with your new found photo posting ability! This is way cool! Corsair looks perfect like this.  :thumbsup:

Nice Corsair.  It looks well used. 

We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.



Sweet Job!!!!!!!!!!! Did You Know the RN was the First to show the Corsair was Suited to Carrier Use before the US Navy used it???????? Hope to see More Awesome work like This!!!!!!!!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :cheers:

Now that's just filthy..... looks like it just got back from an extended cruise AND combat. Don't recall seeing that one before, Terry. Very nice work.

On the other side of the nose it says "IPMS Stafford and IPMS Burton", as it was built for a display. My friend Dennis Gorman says it was just like the Sea Furies looked normally. They cleaned them up for photographs!! :party:
