1/48 scale F4U-1A Corsair is available online from Squadron.com
This Corsair is Tamiya's 1/48th scale version straight from the box.
I used Gunze H54 and H56 for the upper surfaces and Tamiya Flat White
for the underside. The heavily weathered look was created with oil
washes. I lightened some of the upper panels with Gunze Gray to simulate
My vision was a South Pacific scene so I needed some palm trees.
Verlinden makes some expensive but fantastic replicas fashioned in resin
and brass. The crew was Verlinden as well. The celluclay base is covered
with sand and dirt while the foliage is sawdust.
I'd like to thank everyone who participates in Hyperscale. You guys
have been extremely helpful. This is my first modeling effort after
reading, learning, and buying the items suggested on this site. Thanks
