Slight Seconds Vought F4U Corsair
At VMC, absolute quality is highly important to us.
We thoroughly check each sheet of cut parts for unwanted artefacts from the laser cutting process and occasionally we find rejects.
What's wrong with them? Sometimes there is a slightly burned edge, sometimes the laser hasn't fully cut through a part.
It's all very trivial for the average modeller who can fashion the odd part from the balsa sheet offcuts.
It doesn't feel right to simply waste these parts by throwing them away, so instead we are offering them to those of you out there who don't mind having a few questionable parts and would rather have a big discount.
