The Corsair is finished

Updated: Dec 4, 2018

Wow, this thing took a couple of months to complete once I got back on it. I have to admit that it's not completely finished. I ordered some E-Z Line from an internet hobby shop so that I can add the wire aerials to it, but it hasn't arrived because I think they may have lost my order. I'm kinda stuck until it arrives. You probably wouldn't have know if I hadn't told you.

I decided not to place the cowling covers on it (they are finished, though) because that engine looks so cool like that.

I really didn't know how this thing was going to turn until I started painting it. I knew it was going to be done as a RNZAF version with the angry duck graphic, but I had no clue how I was going to accomplish the weathering. I used the the 1/144 Revell Ekranoplan as an experiment to see how well Mission Models Paints worked with the salt technique, so I decided to go that route. In the end I ended up combining that with hairspray, then just plain water to get the chipping. A future post will show a tutorial on how to do that.
