Vought F4U-5N Corsair, Lindberg, 1/48
« on: December 01, 2018, 06:29:29 PM »
Hello mates,

Here is a very old kit from Lindberg (Copyright date 1952 Inside the fuselage) that I first built between 1956 and 1960.

I present you the "motorized" version that I never got when I was a teenager and that I found without instructions ans decals...
Here is the result.

Markings are probably not very accurate but could have likely existed.

Artwork by Ray Gaedke :


With this kit, not only the plane must be built but also the electric motor :





Some pictures have been retouched to hide electric wires.

I think that the oldest kit here is the Vought F7U-1 Cutlass also by Lindberg :
