French F4U-7 corsair (actually GPM AU-1 repainted)

i have been building this slowly for awhile now and so far i can say this design by Rafal Ciesielski is very very good. worked on wheel wells and centre left wing. Also made wheel well messy to reflect the grease and grime from operational use.

I will make this model with cowling partially removed, one wing folded and one set of gun bay opened.

The biggies aren't my cup of tea, but I'm always in awe of these models and their builders.

This is really magnificent, Rasta!

All of your models are terrific, but the colors and markings of this 15 Flotille Corsair from the carrier La Fayette (former US Langley CVL-27) during the 1956 Suez campaign (Operation MUSKETEER) and your superb craftsmanship put this in a different realm.

I'm eager to see the next steps of your construction.

Don

Good looking plane there, I think he also designed some early halinski models if I recall correctly, this model looks great.

That has to be just what they looked like on the Vought assmbly line way back when. Really splendid work. Like Rata, I am into the smaller stuff but I have nothing but admiration at what you guys do with these big boys.

That is really turning out nice. That color combination is quite striking.
