Default RE: 1/4 Scale F4U-1A Don Smith Plans Build

2 items,
The engine should be set back in the cowl quite a ways, look at some corsairs from a 3/4 front view to get the idea,
and 2 the colors as molded are correct. Gloss gray Crankcase with Gloss Black cylinders. the weathering should look like oil staining and chipped paint to be authentic. Pushrod tubes, unless you're doing a pristine show airplane, should be painted the same color as the cylinders.

Have fun It'll be great!
