    WAB is working very badly… in fact, it's working so bad that I'm going to stop this thread and direct anyone who is interested in following to the parallel thread that I've been posting to for the...
  2. f4U-1A Finished!

    With the addition of the antenna and prop, this baby is ready for the flight line.

    Rather than attempt to get the latest pictures on this forum, which gave me fits last night, here's the line to...

    I'm getting an "Internal Server Error" when I click "Advanced" so I can add pics. Something is still very wrong with WAB's site.

    Meanwhile, Gun, I love getting your input. I got a lot done today...
  4. F4U-1A Decaling

    WAB is still running very clunky. It's taking a long time to load. I attempted to upload images yesterday, but no luck. Meanwhile work continues. I'm almost done putting on a myriad of decals and...
  5. F4U-1A Painted

    Milestone Day!

    First up was to paint the wings. The Life Color Intermediate and Sea Blues are not as "bluesy" as the Tamiya color sheet, but look pretty realistic based upon photos of the real...

    Well…that test sort of worked although none of my previous images showed up in the picture upload window.

    Yesterday I weathered the bottom and painted all the hydraulics.

    Again, I've had trouble with this site. My entire post from last night is not here. I'm having trouble getting pictures uploaded. Am I the only one experiencing this?

    Skipping ahead as a test,...
  8. f4U-1A Bottom Completion

    Well I'm back after a nice visit with my son and family in State College, PA. He's building a custom home and we were able to see it almost finished (move in is Dec 14). It was a massive undertaking...
  9. Weathering Discussion Cont.

    I can't imagine any active-duty Tomcat ever looking so shabby. I've never seen a picture of a prototype that looked like that. Would it even be airworthy? I like them to look more like this:

  10. F4U-1A Main Gear Build

    Gun… further on the weathering discussion. Lots of guys like to make a big deal about panel lines with pre-and post-shading, line enhancement, lightening panel centers, etc. But, after watching a...
  11. I don't weather very much. I'm going to add it...

    I don't weather very much. I'm going to add it where it would typically be difficult to be pristine, but am not a fan of making models looks like beat up prototypes. I've been studying prototype pics...
  12. F4U-1A Wing Center Section Completion

    Once again, WAB seems to have suffered a server problem for two days. I wasn't able to load anything. So today's post will be a summary of what's been going on.

    I decided to detail the wheel wells...
  13. F4U-1A Wing Center Section Inner Details

    Building in the inner details of the wings is a lot of fun. First I did some dirtying up of the oil cooler intakes. I again used the Tamiya Black Panel Line wash.

    That dirty front lip...
  14. F4U-1A Wing Center Section

    Today was mostly a painting day. It started with the wing center section bottom which has white, Interior Green and Intermediate Blue painting. I painted the white first and then masked and painted...
  15. F4U-1A Engine Install, Horizontal Stab and Tail Gear (Part B)

    Next up was the tail strut and wheel. It's a lovely affair with lots of parts, great detail and good engineering. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have glued it in yet since it complicates masking...
  16. F4U-1A Engine Install, Horizontal Stab and Tail Gear (Part A)

    The cowls are split top and bottom, so I'll leave the top clear and the bottom painted. The clear parts have a slightly frosted texture which tamiya has included on all the skin parts to give it a...

    Be really careful. It's hard to build models well when you're missing body parts.
  18. Sorry to hear about your upcoming hiatus. Is it...

    Sorry to hear about your upcoming hiatus. Is it due to the hurricanes?
  19. F4U-1A Fuze joined and Engine Built

    Where did the forum go for the last few days? I kept trying to post and was getting little to no response. I was halfway into a post, but then the pictures locked up. I've done a bunch of stuff since...
  20. F4U-1A Cockpit Completed

    Since there was an actual owner of a TBM Avenger on the WAB during that last plane built, is there anyone out there that owns a Corsair?

    I finished up what makes up the cockpit today.

    It...
