If you guys are not in a huge rush I can probably make up a run of instrument panels to fit the TF Corsair. They are not as detailed as the IFLYTAILIES offering but they won't be near as expensive...

The Top Flite airplane is approximately 1:5.7 scale so still closer to 1/6 than to 1/5. A true 1/5 scale Corsair would have a span of 98.4 inches. It's a big airplane!

Drop Dave Schwirian at Scale Specialties a note regarding static scale props (and dummy radials if you need one) for your big Corsair. There ain't none better, IMHO.
