That scheme looks great on the Corsair.You can't really blame Smer for the kit quality, that kit was one of a bunch of old Heller molds they reissued. With the other Corsair options out there, I'd say the kit is good for"What if", parts for kitbashing or a cheap built between more complex projects.
Quote from: Scotaidh on November 22, 2018, 06:11:44 AMVery nice. Not to hijack this thread (but I guess I'm kinda doing that - Sorry!)I've never been a fan of the Pacific Theatre markings on Commonwealth aircraft - the roundel seems ... lacking, I guess, without the red centre. (I've also never liked that British Corsairs had their wings clipped. I know why, I just don't like the look.)So, when I built my Corsair Mk IIC ('C' for cannon) I refused to clip the wings, and I looked through my decal box for alternative markings. I found some from WWI that I rather liked - a lot of white with a tiny wee red dot in the middle - so I used those on the fuselage. I guess that qualifies it as a Whif. Anyway, here's what it looks like.I had to hastily clear away the spider webs for the picture - it's been in place for about 8 years or so, and the wee web-spinners have been busy. Sorry for the hijack - back to Doug's great build.
