    RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

    All -

    I've been quietly watching all of this GREAT work in the background for a couple of years now, utilizing many of your fabulous tips and insights, and now that I have retired and moved to FL, I plan to FINALLY finish my TF Corsair. It's been at the point of sheeting completed for over a year now, I've got the tail doors cut and installed, but am having trouble with the operating mechanism. Looked at CIMARA's method and I think I'll be going with that. (Now if I can just rig a small L-bracket to mount those ball links...) Next will be the main doors. Plan to try my hand at glassing using water-based urethane and finishing with latex. Powering with a 53cc twin and hope to do scale exhaust stacks.

    Is it too late to join the Brotherhood? As a bribe (?) I've got lots of decent pictures of the Corsair hanging in the Udvar Hazy museum in DC...

    ;-)

    Hi Guys,
    I was scanning thru the pages so I could bookmark the thread,I can remember when this thread was on page 1, and for the longest time.I guess every thread has it time & place. I think it only to bad to see that we are on page 5. Sure would be nice to see more activity in the thread.
    Just drop in and let the guys know who's who and who's doing what to their birds. Just like to see some activity here.

    Ok George.

    To all Due to some med problems that have developed over the last 12 months or so, I just can't justify taking my 2 warbirds out. But the little flying I have done has been with a 20 year old beeter.

    As for the med problem there is some hope and with some therapy I may just get back in the game.

    cheers Bob T

    by the way i asked if it was a good idea to drill holes to lighten the weight an they said strait forward  NO unless i wanted to take care of the extra work it shouldn't need the holes an it was at mike barbees  shop in his basement

    Naaa it's just not enough guys building any more. and most young guys don't want to take the time to learn to build as you know this is not a beginners kit.

    I dob't know mike Barbees, but I would just say every ounce you save in the tail section is 6 ounces less weight in the nose, and with the lighter engines than a G-62 you will be supprised at the added dead wieght you will have to add to get the C/G rite.

    Please post pic's of your progress, and if you have questions ask.

    Cheers Bob T

    RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

    Glad to see this thread is still going. Haven't flown my Corsair at all this year for one reason or another. Anyway, as the previous post stated, it seems that ARF's are what people are using now. Anyway, I still follow this thread and pick up new ideas along the way.

    I'm in! I just picked up the kit and the Robart retracts. I have been reading thru the thread. I am going to use the Saito 450R3 as I already have it. I am about to start on the wing. So far a very good build.

    Regards,

    Dave

    Great start Dave!
    Be sure to post pictures as you build,
    Especially concerning your engine installation.
    We'd all love to watch you progress!

    I am with Scott on pictures but not just on the engine install, I would ask for pic's on all deviations from the kit, and yes it slowes you down but we all learn from it .

    Hi Guys, I don't really have anything to add of any value to the thread here, but just wanted to say thanks to those of you who've taken the time to post advice and photos. Here where my project stands at 5 weeks.

    Kit Mods: I've airfoiled the tail feathers and plan on having the outer wing panels removable much like the arf version.

    Hi George

    What brand of retracts do you have ?. If you have Robarts I have been told they will re fit or you can get the kit but I don't know that first hand
    Give them a call.

    Cheers Bob T
