    RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

    Hi Folks, I started the Corsair build a couple days ago and other than having missing parts it has gone together pretty well. My question is this. How is everyone figuring out where thier panel lines and such should go. Since it isn't to scale I can't find a decent decimal number to use.
    Thank you in advance.
    Oh and if you guy's want I can post all my pictures of the build.

    RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair


    Hi Mrrandyman

    The pnl lines as shown on the back of the manual is about the best I have found, and as you know this bird was mostly spot welded so a double row at each line is realy all you need to give the effect, and for size I would check in overon the 1/6 scale build under RC SCALE,

    And Please do post pic;s of your build

    RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

    Have drummed up some motivation to get my plane airborne finally. Am due to return from the sunny gulf coast this weekend and will see if I can get her up. Vacation is great but it sure does bite into a guys airplane season. Will post some shots of the guts of my bird when I go througgh the punch list that still exists (a short one at least). Will see if the 2.4 system and a moved throttle servo and switch get rid of my interference problem

    Hi folks
    Here are the first set of pictures of my current build. I hope they will help someone. Please let me know if you see any problems as I go along.
    I'm thinking of leaving the sheeting to the last untill I have all the radio gear, hatches and such located.

    RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

    Hi,

    That's only 3 day's work? Wow. That's great. Looks like you're doing a good job, too.

    Unfortunately, it seems like the advent of ARF's and their domination of the hobby seems to have chased off all the real builders. I hate to see threads pop up entitled "Blah Blah Cheap Totally Prefabbed ARF BUILD Thread" as though that's actually building. Some guys at least have the honesty to call them "Assembly" threads! The worst thing is that those threads seem to have more following (and the assembler seems to rate more accolades) than actual build threads. I know it's because there are fewer and fewer builders building kits...and a higher likelihood of someone wanting to see someone else working on the plane they're working on; but it still bums me out. So BRAVO for doing an actual BUILD!!

    RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

    Thank you for the support. I'm a hardcore builder. Always have been and always will.If they want to call them selves builders that's fine with me. I can tell the difference at the field. It is a shame though that the actual builders are dwindling but it seems to me that people are in such a hurry now and days. No one can stand still for a minute to really look at things.
    As long as there are kits to build and a supply of balsa I'll keep carving away.

    RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

    Relax,

    There will always be plans and wood. Thats all you need if you can't get a kit. Laser cutters aren't going anywhere in the next 20 years so if you have a plan of a Warbird you want to build whether it be per the plan size or blown up they can help. Pat at Laser Cut USA is the best kit cutter out there.

    Nice job so far,

    Mrrandyman

    Looks great [sm=thumbs_up.gif] I would sugest putting 1 pc of sheeting down each side to pravent twisting if you pull it from the board, and punch holes in every thing you can aft of the C/G area to keep from having to add nose wieght. back about page 50 or so I posted some pic of the tailwheel structure and if I do another I would do more

    Hope this helps

    Cheers Bob T

    RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

    Yes thank you for the info. I will be sure to lighten up the back structure and I will add some sheeting. I sure don't care for the rudder setup they show on the plans. It seems pretty sloppy in movement but I'm not sure what else a person could use without adding more weight.

    RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

    Hello:
    I'm new to your great build site. Been following for some time, but this is my first post here.
    I have a scale question for someone out their.
    I am building a Zorili GS Corsair 93" WS, etc. On the full scale bird, the right wing had a spoiler added after early manufacturing, around 42 or 43 to the -1A and all subsequent builds. This spoiler was added to assist in eliminating left wing tip stalling on landing.
    I have put my guess as to size of this on my build. I saw a full scale -1D at Oshkosh a couple years ago and was about 6" in width( works out to be about 1 1/4 " on model).
    My problem is the pice I built seems way to large depth wise. I guessed it was about 3" deep at the wing leading edge, which translated to around 1/2" on the build. Just looks way to big.
    Questiondoes anyone know the depth on that thing as measured from the leading edge of a full scale -1A so I can scale this thing more close to what is should be. I guessed it was 3" deep, which scaled out to 1/2".
    I think Corsair Jock had done some scale measurements a few years ago.
    Much thanks much for your help.

    PS
    Love the Corsair build world. Sign me up
    Also sorry if this is only a TFGS build

    Bob


    Looks like you are figuring out some of the scale inaccuracies of either drawings or wing chord or both maybe. Stuff like this always pops up in a scale build it seems when you start laying out panel lines hatches, exhaust fittings, etc. Whatever size you end up making them, might depend a lot on what you think looks best after checking some documents and measures. It is a good question you pose, and it's impressive you are detailing it out to that degree.

    Happy building...I wish I would have built the ziroli in the end...as that gull wing is a total space hog in the shop, I don't think I really save much room in storage than a ziroli would take up.

    If you folks want I can do a youtube on this build also if your all interested.
    I'm sure it will be like watching paint dry but perhaps it will help someone.
