A Vought F4U-1A Corsair fighter lands on a Bougainville airfield in February 1944. Two other F4U-1As are parked on the metal mat in foreground, one with me sitting in the shade under the wing. Mount Bagano, and active volcano, is smoking in the distance at left.”
Finished Hasegawa F4U-4. It’s an old kit, so a lot of raised panel scribing went down, a lot of prep, but the moulds are nice. A little bit of silvering on the decals, but not too bad. I wish Tamiya made a good Navy Blue spray, cuz the Testors with the right color, sprays kinda like crap.
F4U-5 from VF-21 is ready for loading on Board the carrier, naval base Norfolk, VA, April 1949. In Norfolk, adjoining the airbase and naval base, so the plane could be easily taken from the airport to the pier.
