  • Thank you for the compliments. The next bird that I do I will post videos of the weathering techniques. You can find a lot of good stuff on YouTube. Just search for weathering techniques on model airplanes.

    • Pleasant days everyone. I've been away for a few (TDY), but, now I'm back on the grid and playing catch up for all I've missed these past few weeks. Good to be back.

My thoughts on the paint scheme are that this bird was stationed on one of the South Pacific Islands and made it through the war but the salt water and constant rain left it pretty worn. And the insignias are mostly just what came with the plane so Its kind of a mix. Not trying to win any "scale" awards here.
        That's some impressive work there. However, the more I look, the more something appears out of place.

        Then it hit me ...


        Where's the duct tape??? Nice Job

          I've been out of the click here for a little since the hurricane and got a chance to get on the forum and then I seen your Awesome work and was "Blown" away by it. That is some awesome work. Thank You for sharing and welcome to Squawk.

            Wow , I'd hate to see what it would look like if you were really trying to win some awards.
            This will win , no problem.

                    Well this Corsair Nut says "WOW!! STELLAR JOB!"

                    Utterly fantastic Aces...Wow. Never seen that amount of weathering on a Corsair (and for the right reasons)...That could win a static display.
