Hello this the tamiya F4U-1D with moto tug of VMF-217 serving on board USS Franklin in 1945.  I made this great kit back in 2009.

The Tamiya kit is very nicely detailed and was overall a very good fit and hardly needed any filling and sanding, I used Model Master, Tamiya and Vallejo paints on this bird and I enjoyed making this kit as everything fit together perfectly and I'm still thinking of making this one into a diorama :)

I hope you enjoyed looking at this Corsair and you will see more of my work soon. :)
Thanks for looking.
