Default RE: 40 Size Corsair Kits

Jemco/ Marks Models used to make a foam wing version many years ago. Very nice and scale. Later, same company (under the name of DynaFlite by then) pioneered 'FunScale warbirds with the P-51, then went on to produce the FIRST FunScale 40 size Corsair. Midwest also made one. Of the three, I would recommend the original Jemco foam wing version. Check the RCU classified: one guy has one for $100, which is a very reasonble price. If this will be your first warbird, one of the funscale versions might be better for you. Picture below is of my DynaFlite FunScle 40 Corsair, which is still flying after 7 years and 1000 flights. Power is Saito .50 (.56 was not avaible when I began construction). The secret to it's longivity (7 years is a LONG time for me anyways) is it's great flying characteristics. It weighs about 5 1/4 lbs, and the .50 is more than enogh power. Cowl is a Great Planes cowl, plans call for flat sided. Cowl is avaible from Tower for about $10.
PS, mine is the one in front.
