Thanks for the kind words. Right now, I don't want to sell any of my P-47s.

The F4U so far. Saito 120, Robart 615s, cockpit kit and flaps. What's a good way to sand this wing? I used the shoe shine trick on the fuselage and it worked great. Doesn't work so well on the wing though.

Default shoe shine

Shoe shine method: full sheet of sand paper held by both ends and worked across the object as you would when you shine your shoes with a cloth.

Default Sanding a Corsair Wing

Devo: Go to an automotive paint supply store like Wesco in Renton and get a 3M soft pad. It is rigid foam rubber on one sideand softer foam on the other and use the stickey back sand paper. The foam block will keep you from installing the finger grooves that really look bad once you start to apply primer and paint. It's flexible enough to go around all those nice curves easily. I have two of them on my bench at all times. They work great.

I just use scraps of foam, and use elmers to glue to atach the paper to them. any size and shape I need, and peels off fairly easily. i'm partial to 3m "sandblaster" sandpaper. does what it says on the lable.

Any chance we can keep this thread directed towards the original post, which is showing Pics of Corsairs? If you must add 'how to's, could you please edit your post (with pics) and place the 'how tos' there? I'm subscribed to this post and it's getting annoying getting a notice every time someone has a building method question.
Also, when you post your pics, a description of your project would be appreciated: what kit is it from (or scratch built), what engine, wingspan, etc.

Default TF CORSAIR for Sale

Lo, All.

I fly RC Sailplanes mostly but a little power. A year or so ago, I "inherited" a TF F4u which was completly built, but not covered.
It was done with .6 glass cloth and has been primered, only.
The control surfaces (ailerons, flap, rudder and elevator) have been covered with monokote bu the previous owner. I decide to glass it. though and dis so and then primered it. I intended to finish and fly the bird but other priorities prevail. So, I'm thinking about selling it. The package include the plane, a new, Webra 60, 3-blade prop, robard pneumatic retracs with tank, valve, etc. gas tank, wheels, etc plus a pint PPG DELTRON 2-part paint computer-matched to the blue monokote. (with catalast, recucer, etc ... about $100 worth of paint alone)
All this is NEW equipment. So, though I hate to, I've pretty much decided to let this go. There's only so much time and a LOT of choices. I'd like to get a feeling on what you guys think this might be worth on the market? Thanks in advance.

I'm sorry... I may have stared the deviations from the original purpose of this thread in post #3 when I posted a picture of my unfinished Corsair. But the intention there was only to get the ball rolling.

I agree with CorsairJock. Let's keep this thread a thread of pictures and descriptions of Corsairs. Tips and questions would be much better off on a new thread.


Thanks

Default Battle Proven

Thought I would share a nice flying Top Flite Corsair, owned by Ed Red. Moki 2.10 for power, once it broke in, flies like a bat.

Default Down & Dirty Fly By

Saito .72 is running absolutely fantastic now, purring like a kitten at idle and growling like a tiger at full throttle, so I feel comfortable again with the low and slow fly bys.
This, again, is a Top Flite Gold Edition 1/8 scale Corsair with Robart retracts and RoboStruts, Saito .72GK (look closely, it blends well with yellow cowl), weighs 8 lbs, 10 oz minus fuel First flight were on May 6, 2003. This pic was taken on a very overcast May 9.

Default PICA Corsair

Pica 1/8 Corsair. Not flown yet. Comes in around 9.5 lbs due to the pound of weight to balance it. I have an OS 61 SF in it now but not sure if that's enough now. CJ retracts, full flaps, cowl since modified with flaps to aid in cooling. Maybe this weekend it'll fly but the gods may be against me again, weatherwise. . .
