    My new book on F4U-1 Corsair family cockpits

    My new book is now in from the printer - it's a guide to the many revisions to the F4U-1 family's cockpits. I wrote this as a limited-edition book for the true Corsair enthusiast (hence the "Rivet Counter" series title). It's 72 glossy pages, full color throughout - all of which explains the...

    Vought F4U-1C, any blueprints or photographs that show the upper wing surface?

    Afternoon folks, I'm planning on building an F4U-1C model. The biggest issue I'm facing is the lack of good documentation online about this plane. As far as I can find, there are no solid images or better yet blueprints of the upper wing. I'd like to be able to find out the exact size for the...

    F4U-1A Corsair! From Tamiya kit in 1/32

    HI, as I mentioned already in a previous post, in late January I started considering to build a WW2 carrier based warbird. First I thought to the F6F but available kits didn't convinced me enough, so I choose the F4U and purchased the above kit. Once I had it in my hands, I realized that the -1A...

    1/48 Tamiya F4U-1 Bird Cage Corsair

    Now I've called the Bf-109B as finished I have started on the next kit - Tamiya's Bird Cage Corsair. I won't go into too much about the kit - it is quite well represented by other members. I have decided to bling it up a little bit with a QuickBoost engine and some selected bits from the Eduard...

    New Orleans Air Sea and Land Festival 2018

    This little event, which started out as just a static display of a few warbirds, has gradually morphed into a full fledged airshow. This year for the first time I brought a nice camera and got some decent photos. There were several interesting Warbirds flying this year including a P-63...

    A terrible doubt regarding F4U Corsair BuNo

    Hello, I have a doubt regarding F4U BuNo 17472... F4U-1 "Birdcage" or F4U-1A ?????? :shock: On Joe Baugher website the serie 17456 => 18121 are F4U-1A Corsair, therefore, BuNo 17472 is a F4U-1A. But we often see a F4U-1 "Birdcage" Corsair BuNo 17590 "white 590" flown by A. R. Conant from...

    Spot weld construction

    I understand that the F4U and B-26 Marauder construction involved a lot of spot-welding in place of rivets. Was it any more difficult repair battle damage (replace aluminum sheeting, etc.) on spot-welded areas than rivets? At least with rivets, if you have to drill out the rivets you can see...

    F4U Corsair quandary...

    I'm building a 1/4 scale RC F4U Corsair. The majority of the structural building is just about complete, and now I'm at the point where I need to decide which aircraft I will be replicating. I've initially had my heart set on the paint scheme which shows white or gray on the bottom with a dark...

    I've got lots of pictures of my favorite plane, the F4U Corsair, but I'm looking for an exact head-on profile--don't care what model . I want to up-size it and paint it on my pickup truck tailgate. If you have one, can you email it to [email protected]. (you'll note that my email address...
