First Look

True Details is one of many brand names produced and sold by Squadron Mail Order. In this release, they've developed a nice looking replacement set cast in gray resin for the recent HobbyBoss 1/48 F4U-4 (Late) Corsair kit.

F4U-4 Propeller and Cowling Detail Set

The set provides a completely new cowling finely cast to correct the profile of the kit cowling as well as a replacement propeller with hub and blades cast separately. These blades also correct the shape of the propeller paddle blades as depicted in the kit.

My sincere thanks to Squadron Mail Order for this review sample!
