Am looking for detailed measuements for the F4U-1 - cowl diameter, main wheel diameter, wing rib ordinates or stations, fuselage and wing rib cross-sections and geometry - contour lines with measurements. Can anyone help?
My source of details usually comes from the really expensive plastic models. You need very close measurements and a scale factor. These are usually very well researched models as builders are meticulous. I build and fly giant scale Warbirds ....especially Corsairs. I'd like to build an F4U 5 variant. Mainly because the nose is longer so the motor weight is farther forward. You always need considerable weight to balance these so a bigger motor farther forward reduces useless weight replacing it with more power, so double edge gain..
