THIS IS MY FIRST STENCIL PROJECT, I WENT WITH THE VMF-213, THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A CHALLENGE AND WELL IT TURNED OUT GREAT!

i cheated a wee bit, i had my wife make the outlines on decal paper and used the wet back and masking tape/painters tape to hold the backing in place worked pretty good! its for sale on ebay, may lower the price. but if any forum member buys it, here or on ebay, i'll sell it for $300, i'll get more pics soon, and of the tomcat vf-2. my next corsair will be thuis scheme, i love this scheme, i hope we can get the bolt just rite.

Nice repaint of the Corsair, thatf14guy.

Love the 1/18 Corsair, paticularly the BBI ones.

My favourite however is this custom Royal Navy one.
