Hi guys!!!

This is my new F4U-5 "Corsair" from Revell in 1/48 scale. Built out of box. Painted with Revell Aqua Colors. The blue in the photos appears a bit lighter than in reality.
Everything is sealed with semi-gloss varnish. The two pilot figures are from Tamiya.

Cheers
Stefan

Though I'm no a fan of weathering I must admit, that it looks quite realistic here on a post WW 2 weary Corsair. Well done! The only critics I have is the missing look on the underside. But you never show us that ....
