After the Corsair, I wanted a straightforward, not too involved build to end the year. I was really enjoying 1/32 props, and was looking for a low parts count and something that would fit well. Hasegawa’s Kurfurst fit the bill on that point. Overall though, this was a “were they even trying?”.
Tamiya’s big Corsair has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the best, if not the best, plastic model kits ever created. There’s little point in me doing a review of the sprues or construction, so I’m just going to walk you through my approach to painting it.
