This is my Vought F4U-1A Corsair from Tamiya. As usual, it´s a great quality kit to build, parts fit very well, and don´t need any fix. It was built out of the box, with Eduard PE interior details.

I know that is a well-known classic color scheme, but is very significative have an old Jolly Rogers Corsair in my collection. So, I choose this scheme to paint. Paints used was a Mr. Color set for WWII US Naval Aircraft. After gloss coat and decals, a washing with Tamiya Accent panel lines was made. After this a weathering with grey pastel chalk and matte coat finish the model.

After all, this is an amazing classic Warbird.
