This is a Hasegawa, 1/48 F4U-7 Corsair, in French markings. I built it for the Suez campaign.
A very nice model, but I had to get my dad to help me with some parts as it was a bit complicated in places and i couldn't quite work out where some parts went.
My build thread can be found on the British Bulldogs site here
Hope you like it.
Courtney

My entry this month is the Revell Monograms 1/72nd Starfury mk1 from the TV show Babylon 5 in the paint scheme of Commander Susan Ivanova. the kit was built out of the box and painted with Humbrol paints and metalcote steel and gunmetal for the engines and mechanical parts.







Enjoy and good luck everyone.

This is the Monogram Pro Modeller series 1/48 F-86D Dog Sabre.
Built OOB and painted in Alclad 2 polished aluminium, with the nose painted with Xtracrylixs Night black and Tamiya olive drab for the anti glare.
A very subtle pin wash of Payne's Grey oils for the weathering.
An absolute joy to build with no major problems. If you see one, buy it.
Andy
