Grey Matter Figures | GMALB3203 F4U-1A Corsair Accessory Bay

Reviewed by Iain Ogilvie

Handed to us at the IPMS UK Scale Modelworld event at Telford, this new set provides a set of beautifully cast parts to create/detail the accessory bay behind the engine on the Tamiya F4U-1A Corsair.

Mastered by our own, very talented, Loic Bridot these parts are specific to the -1A model - another set is available for -1 airframes - largely similar - but with the earlier, smaller, oil tank.

In addition to the internal details, the set provides replacement fuselage door panels to replace those areas that will need removing to expose the accessory bay - a nice touch that makes use of this set simple and very effective.

All components are beautifully cast - with minimal clean-up required. Instructions are provided as colour photo's on two sheets of A4 paper.

Designed for the Tamiya kits, this set should be equally at home on the Trumpeter kits.

Very highly recommended!
