Basically it’s a 1989 model kit by Otaki Which is another nostalgia build for me. I wanted to give it a little bit more character by adding a couple of photo etched parts but then the age of the kit started to show the cracks on the fuselage even on the wings so I had to stop and just go back to the basics of building it straight out of the box and it didn’t turn out so bad basically the whole kit was fun. And Basically the reason why I chose the Otaki kit What is for a practice build on a scheduled build log for a pair of corsairs that will be arriving soon so if I can pull off or put this nostalgia bird all together and create something beautiful I’ll be able to do more with the upcoming build.
