....Of course I'll have to live till I'm 150 to get around to all these builds.

Hi, young fellow!
Looking at my stash (350+) I made a inquiry to the old man above for some extra time. Should at least be 290 .... Have got no answer yet ....

Will be following once again for sure. I'm planning on building all 3 of Tamiya's F4Us, even trying to upgrade some of the other variant kits out there. Of course I'll have to live till I'm 150 to get around to all these builds.

I'll follow along again. I've never built this kit. Had it once but let the kids take it and missed out.



Hi Russ , not the first time I have built this kit . Did the birdcage version many many moons ago . I have also built Tamiya's 32 scale birdcage , but no later version . I do have Tamiya's 48 scale F4U -1a and their 32 scale version .

If you get the chance to pick up another , do so

Richard,
I think you're putting way to much pressure on Terri for sure. Sunday by dinner time is more like it.

So far it's taken me a full day to unbox the T-33A, checkout the sprues, make paint notes, and actually start cleaning up the basic cockpit parts.
