Hi all. I present to your attention my new model - F4U-1A CORSAIR from Revell. The plane of the famous pilot Lt. Cdr. John T. “Tommy” Blackburn (VF Squadron, US Navy, Ondongo, Nov.1943)
For me, this model is experimental. I tried to implement my personal improvements and modifications (I used 3Dmax for development and printed on an Anycubic Рhoton Mono X 6k 3D printer).
First of all, the Pratt & Whitney R-2800-18W engine was completely designed.
In addition, the engine compartment has been completely redesigned. I made the lids open.
In addition, I almost completely redesigned the cockpit (pilot seat, seat belts, cockpit interior), as well as the wings of the landing gear nacelles (they are completely uninteresting at Revell - just plastic rectangles, without detailing), I also inserted exhaust pipes (I used copper pipes).
In addition, I completely cut off the outer paneling and applied the inner one.
It was an interesting job.
From the aftermarket I used Tamiya dashboard and Halberd Models wheels, painted – Mr.Color
Well, here is the result:
