Hi guys, I managed to get my hands on a Top Flite Corsair kit and am very keen to start building. I have been reading through quite a bit of the posts on here and there really is a lot of good info. I am planning on modelling mine after a F4U-5NL. Can somebody maybe help me out with regards to the major differences between the other versions of Corsairs and the 5NL?
As far as I can pick up on the actual aircraft:
1) there are 2 scoops on the side of the cowl( 4 and 8 o'clock)
2) towards the back of the cowl it seems to flatten out a bit( is the fuse also flat)
3) exhuast exit positions
4) an all metal wing skin
I do not plan on making the model Top Gun quality but would like to give it a bit more of a scale appearance than the standard kit. I attached a pic of the full size I want to model.
Thanks in the mean time and goodluck to everybody still busy with their builds.
