I know all of you want to have a actual copy of the Corsair but we all have to be pratical also.
Yes, I want a 1/6 Corsair that looks like a REAL, full scale, Corsair. To me, the most noticeable parts (excluding the overall outline) are the wings, gear, and cockpit. I agree that we must take liberties when we have to and there has certainly been a lot of discussion regarding the wings and gear, but I'm challenging you all to make it work
I guess I'm just stubborn, stupid, or both, but it's not clicking why we can't do it. I don't like that word "CAN'T"!
We are building scaled down versions of a real plane so if a 32" x 8" wheel fits in the full scale wing, at 1/6 scale a 5.33" x 1.33" wheel should fit in our wing.
Keep in mind that we started with Royal plans and Matt views but it is up to us, our collective creative influences that will overcome these obstacles. Many of you have already contributed with tremendous insight and ingenuity that have lead the group forward with this building endeavor.
Instead of saying it won't work, I would like to hear something like, "in order to get it to work we will need to do this...." and then each builder can decide if they want to take that road or not.
