F4U-1A Corsair – Plastic model

Posted in plastic modeling by chrisau on October 22, 2008

Here’s another addition to my plastic models, the F4U-1A Corsair.Β  In fact, this is one of my favorites WW2 planes, besides the Mustang. What I really like of the Corsair is the ‘crooked’ wings, which make it look spectacular!! πŸ˜€

Well, I’ve just renewed my interest in building models recently and with the Zero fighter already in my collection, it’s time to get another one!

Here are the paints that I’ve bought for the project…haha…. A spray paint cost me around S$10 and mostly all are bought from Tamiya. Those smaller bottles costs around $S4.

Ok, here are the partially completed model (below and above). it actually took me about 1 month to reach this stage, thanks to my busy schedule!! 😦

And, yes….the completed model! Another feature of the plane is that there’s a motor embedded inside which turns the propeller, when you manually turned it.

My two collections of plastic models that i built recently – Mitsubishi Zero fighter and Corsair.

    Of course not la…claire. I bought enough toy cars and aeroplanes for him already..haha.
    These models are for decorative purposes only, not for playing. If it took me 2 months to build it (yes, with lots of patience and ‘calmness’) , once it drops to the floor, it will be destroyed in less than 5 secs… haha…


  3. Do you have a lot of plane models? Need some space to store and display them

    Thanks for commenting, BBO! I have built some gundams too but those are the simple and cheaper ones. I’m back to plastic models now which is more challenging and needs lot of patience. I just got a F15 Eagle yesterday. Will blog it once I’ve completed.
