    Very nice. Something odd about the gun sight though. Should be upright.

    It seems it depended on the kind of a gunsight attached. The Mk.VIII one could be fixed just in the way.

    Final paint completed. White diamonds masked and airbrushed. Post shade down with Model Master paints. Now time for gloss coat and decals :) 13932782_10209108488642232_5995753718780414967_n.jpg 13903419_10209108488322224_3264128701117253414_n.jpg 13907204_10209108489642257_5829588921189214274_n.jpg 13920638_10209108489562255_458955535166920975_n.jpg 13925198_10209108489362250_6763692202263585916_n.jpg 13934593_10209108489122244_7353498185591052860_n.jpg

    Nice Corsair! I like the tonal variation in the wing panels!
