Re: Topic of the week #1 - Tomcats

Sadly, a type I never saw fly, up close at least, having had very few encounters with them, the best of which was in the static park at Yeovilton 96. It was quite the surprise seeing so much US Navy hardware on the deck at the Photocall! Some poor scans of even poorer images taken by my 11 year old ...

Re: Tamiya 1/72 Corsair II

Thank you, for the chipping I carefully applied some masking fluid using a piece sponge on top of the base colours, effectively drybrushing it on so as to keep the 'chips' small and random. After unmasking I wasn't too happy with the walkways so I further enhanced the effect here in the same way but...

In keeping with my naval theme for the year, I've finished it in the older and very smart German Navy colours with the help of a old Model Decal sheet.
