Scale 1: 12 (1” = 1’)
By Tom Houle
My model, as built and marked, replicates an F4U-1D assigned to VF-84 aboard the U.S.S. Bunker Hill in February 1945. The overall color is glossy Sea Mist blue with insignia blue and white insignias and white squadron markings. The markings were taken directly from a four-color layout in Fighters of World War II. All marking and insignia patterns are shown full size on the plans if you wish to duplicate my color scheme.
