Tutorial: BUILDING HASEGAWA'S F4U-4 CORSAIR


   This corsair was painted with Tamiya acrylics and Model Master enamels. The color and markings represent an aircraft of the USMC VMF-225 Squadron in 1947 where my father was a mechanic on these great aircraft.

   The model was built mostly out of the box with few modifications. The spinning propeller is a disk of clear plastic with the "blurred" propeller airbrushed on.
