    Hi There!

    Just finished my 1/32 Trumpeter F4U-1 Greg "Papy" Boyington Corsair.

    I scratched build the fuel tank section with milliput and added details as viewed thru the bottom window of the plane.

    The name Lulu Belle is debatable since I think it was only added for promotioal pictures of Greg Boyinton sitting at a Corsair, but I decided to add them just for fun along with all the Japanese Kill flags.

    The inside of the Cowling is by Aries.

    Have fun and Happy Holiday season to all.

    Very nice detailing on the engine/cowling area... I did this kit also, in the same guise, only it was Lt. Bill Case's "873" from VMF-214... Gotta love those flaps...

    Nice work.There's plenty of scope for detail at that scale, and the engine and cowl assemblies look good.

    Hi There LA2019!

    Thanks for your comments!

    I think I combined the Trumpeter kit and parts from a Resin one from Black Box?

    It was a fun build!!!!

    Thanks again!
