1/48 Tamiya F4U-1A Corsair

The sale of my Tamiya Corsair, detailed with the Aires set left a noticeable void in my display area and I felt obliged to fill it in with a similar model.

Changes that I made in the second "Big Hog" included many modifications and omissions of "details" to facilitate the building process without loosing the overall realistic effect. In addition, I applied subtle weathering, which I think, corresponds better with the actual appearance of these aircraft that served in the Pacific. 

Enjoy the photos.
