Tamiya's 1/32 scale
Chance-Vought F4U-1D Corsair

by Brett Green

Chance-Vought F4U-1D Corsair

Meng's 1/48 scale F-35A Lightning II is available online from Squadron for USD$59.99




I have just finished Tamiya's brand new 1/32 scale F4U-1D Corsair as a Goodyear -built FG-1D. 



I used Eduard's BRASSIN cockpit, cowling set and wheels, fabric harness and Zoom photo-etch for the instrument panel. You can see some photos of the cockpit posted a few weeks ago on HyperScale.

The kit engine was used, just adding the ignition harness from lengths of copper wire.



I have also installed Grey Matter's open equipment bay. Decals are one of the kit options. 



Tamiya's 1:32 scale F4U-1D is a great kit. It was a delight to build although you do need to stay focussed and follow the instructions carefully. 



This model will be the centrepiece of the forthcoming book, "How To Build Tamiya's 1:32 F4U-1A and F4U-1D Corsair", which should be available at IPMS UK's ScaleModelworld in November.
