Description

 

This model is based on Pend-Oreille Model Kit's 1/48 scale resin F2G-2.

When I saw the poor quality of this USD$50 kit, I kitbashed my Super-Corsair! Half of the fuselage, wings, tail and the details are from Tamiyas F4U-1. I use the very forward of the resin-fuselage from PO and modified/corrected the exhaust-channels.

Cockpit is from True Details detailed with scratchbuilt parts.

 

 

The forward cowl ring from the POMK kit has been corrected by using the front ring from Tamiya glued at a minor angle (the top edge is moved forward).

 

 

The most difficult problem was the 14' propeller. The POMK Blades are too short and have an inaccurate profile. I widened and lenghtened the blades with sheet, primed 3 times with primer and combined them with a spinner from Hi-Tech.

The wheels are from Hellers' F4U-7.

The masks for the cowling checks were prepared on my computer. Just before completion, I received the new article by Steeve Muth, so I can build the correct configuration of the lower 3 cooling flaps.
