    Well while waiting to see what 1/32 decals come out for the 1/32 F4U-1A decided to get another 1/48 Tamiya Corsair going. These kits are just amazing . On to the build :)

    Got the wings painted and weathered. Few little touch out. Then time to gloss coat for decals. Just have landing gear , gear doors and prop to paint . Made a perfect tool to hold the the wings out of cloths pins. So i know have a tool to use on other Corsair builds :)
