F2G Super Corsair Racer Kit Bash
November 27, 2012 in Aviation
This was one of my first forays into AMS and kit bashing. I started with a Special Hobbies 1/48 F2G Racer, and added the wings from an Academy 1/48 F4U-1A, because I wanted the flaps down, and I wasn’t about to chop up a Tamiya kit. I do realize that the intakes are incorrect, as well as the outer wing panels not having enough dihedral, but I like the final result. I included a picture of the engine to show all the wiring, exhaust plumbing and valve push rods I added, because it is completely hidden on the completed model. I have a 20 page booklet , with pictures, I created in the process of building this kit. I can send a copy to any interested party.
