Well folks, here we go - my first campaign!
I'm using the under 25% completion exemption. In fact, I stopped this build just so I could join this campaign. (I have never joined one before because the timeline has never worked out or I didn't think I would have time to complete a build within the timeline.) I have painted most of the cockpit and assembled some of it. Well under 25%
I'm building Tamiya's sublime 1/32nd scale F4U-1A
I've added the (am adding) the Brassin F4U Cockpit and Engine.
I'll be using Radu's USN harness
And last, but certainly not least - Masks made by your friend and mine, Mal Mayfield of Miracle Mask fame. (Thanks for cutting them Mal.)
I apologize for the quality of the photos. I don't own a macro lens (despite the number of blogs I have written) and I also use my Blackberry from time to time (for ease of use, it's paired with photobucket and uploads to my computer within minutes of being taken. No pesky file transfers.)
The detail of the Brassin sets is PHENOMENAL! I have never seen better or molding (printing?) so crisp. I have come to learn, however, that the instructions can Dragon you a bit and some of the fit can be challenging.
A full cowling and cowl flaps are included in the engine set. Exquisite detail.
And we're off to the races. I'll be starting a build log at some point soon as well and I'll x-post.
