Just finished Special Hobby's 1/48 F2G (actually I have a couple of small items to attend to). I would say that its a pretty good kit to build if you take your time and dry fit everything.
Thanks for looking

Special doesn't describe the work you've done on this kit.
Beautiful workmanship and clean paint work sure do show!
That makes two beautiful F2G's kits I've seen done now.
Thanks for posting!

Beautiful F2G! What paint did you use for the red?

I've got one in my stash, but it won't look THAT good.

I used Tamiya Mica red TS-39 from the rattle can
Gorgeous! Can I ask you something?
|May 29 2012, 10:29 PM |
Are those the kit decals? I am afraid to use them because they may not be opaque enough. Also, what red did you use, its amazing.

They are the kit decals and they seem to cover just fine,but I coated them with decal sealer because I heard they are brittle. Also I trimmed off all the extra carrier film on the wing decals to make it easier.
I would highly recommend sealing the decals first just to be sure.
Now that's a beauty!

I'm not much on race planes, but that... That's a beauty.
Besides, its a Corsair!
