Tamiya's 1/48 scale F4U-1A Corsair is available online from Squadron for only USD$25.99!
I have just completed my test shot of Tamiya's 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6.
The model has been built almost straight from the box. The only modifications are the inclusion of Eduard STEEL harness straps (a nice compromise between authenticity and ease of use), decals from Eagle Cals (Item No. EC-41) and the DF loop is bent from a staple, although the staple is from one of the bags in the kit so technically I suppose that IS out of the box.
If you are skeptical about the open and closed engine cowls, don't be. It all fits perfectly and works exactly as advertised. I can't tell the difference between kit panel lines and the join lines when the parts are in place. Ingenious design and amazing execution.
I'll be writing this one up in detail for Military Illustrated Modeller magazine Issue 81.
In summary though: Buy one. Build one.
Thanks to Tamiya Japan for the sample.
