So my brother was out at his local field and a guy there had a used Parkzone Corsair that needed a little bit of love. Parkzone is releasing an upgraded version of the Corsair named the F4U-1A, which is flap and retract ready (optional via kits) has a Brushless Power 15 motor, has cool fuel tanks you can mount on the wing, and also features a new airfoil. So...he was willing to sell my brother his Corsair cheap, which my brother then gave to me. Free plane!
This blog is less about building a modding, as the Corsair didn't need much in the way of cosmetic work. I just had to shave a few rough places, sand some others gently and replace the gear mounting plates. All easily done. The real purpose of this blog is to detail a custom paint job using really simple methods. The techniques here don't require fancy equipment, compressors, complicated instructions or much in the way of art skills. If you can use a paintbrush, you're one step closer to having your own custom paint job. It's that easy.

I have been heavy into the process of constructing the Dynam T-28 Trojan, including modifications to various parts and the addition of custom decals and a custom paint scheme.
The purpose of this little inter-web blurb will be to share my ideas and creativity with others in the hopes they might find inspiration to do the same with their own various planes, as well as guiding more inexperienced builders and pilots on the How-To's for adding modifications to the Dynam T-28 or overall general maintanence for foam rc aircraft.
I will be updating this blog periodically with new entries and hopefully break down the entire build / paint / mod process step by step, with photos to show you everything clearly and cleanly for your reference, as well as documenting my progress. At the moment, I am nearing the final stages of the painting process, but fear not intrepid pilot! I will back log everything from the start of this project so you dont miss a thing.
So, keep posted because more will follow very soon. Check out the comments below to follow this build...
