Nice Chevron, Brett - I like the way you render your reds - the lighting looks very realistic.
I'm a fan of the Chance Vought Corsair F4U, probably because my father served in the RNZAF 30SU Servicing Unit (Corsairs), serving on Espirito Santo, Guadalcanal, Bouganville, Green (Nissan) Island & Jacquinot Bay. There were 237 F4U-1s and 127 F4U-1Ds used by the RNZAF during the Second World War. I'm also rather impressed by the noise of its 2,000 hp 18-cylinder Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp radial engine - just magnificent.
Brett & I ordered a 1/18th scale model of an F4U each recently - they can't be far away Brett. I will then have two 1/18th scale Corsairs (the first is here), whilst Brett's will join his 1/18th scale Mustang P51D. This is my rendering of the Corsair:
One of my photographs of RNZAF's only surviving Corsair is used on the 'State Symbols of USA' website (here).
I attempted to photograph the final versions of RM30 & the Phantom & the beginnings of the Falcon commission tonight but the flash wouldn't behave itself so I'll do it properly on Saturday.
