After a bit of a brake from modelling (no real valid reason!) i've finished my first for 2012.
It's my take on a well worn RNZAF F4U of #25 SQN, Los Negros Island Jan 45. I used the old Arii 1/48 kit straight out of the box & only added decals from the AeroMaster RNZAF in WW2 sheet & the wheels are from the Academy kit. Painted with gunze paints.
Wow, that's the old Arii kit?! That's a fantastic result from that old chestnut!

I can't recall the last time I saw one of these built- seeing how yours came out, I may have to pick up one at the next show I go to, just to bash it together and get it on the shelf. It certainly looks the part, and your careful paint and weathering really makes it stand out!

Just wondering... Is the drop tank 90 degrees out?
We stole the eagle from the Air Force, the anchor from the Navy, and the rope from the Army.
On the seventh day while God rested, we overran his perimeter, stole the globe, and we've been running the whole show ever since.
