    subject, Corsair Mk II, JT634, 13-7/P, 1834 FAA Sqn, HMS Victorious
    kit, Tamiya F4U-1D
    scale, 1/48
    class, 3

    i brush painted this model with vallejo acrylics for the upper surfaces and humbrol enamels for the under surfaces.
    i also used Techmod decals and clipped the wingtips to convert the kit to represent a Corsair II of the Fleet Air Arm
