Plane Type: Propeller; Plane Name: XF5U-1 Flying Pancake; Scale: 1/72; Kit Manufacturer: Hasegawa
As threatened many months ago, here is the Vought XF5U, made from the Hasegawa kit.
I think I got the focus just about right (i.e. to hide the flaws) and only three images, largely owing to the fact that if I did more, you'd only see bits like the mess I made of the underside decal (both cutting and positioning are very poor) and of the clear nose.
I'd like to thank Mark, who sent me a scan of the instrument sheet, which clarified a few things for me. Everything is going up these days, petrol in the UK is costing more and more and modelling standards are going up as well. This is my shout for the underdog, the modeller who tries but still botches.
