F2G “Super” Corsair
I read an interview with Cook Cleland about racing in Cleveland and he said something to the effect “I had to win it, I was mortgaged up to my eyeballs!”, that always struck me as funny. He sure fielded some beautiful Corsairs. The decals for #57 made this kit easy, the red paint doesn’t bleed through the white sunburst at all. The only changes I made were the big carb scoop, Tamiya wheels, and I re-positioned the cowl flaps and the “rudders”. The build has some flaws…don’t look too close 🙂 …but overall it really is a great kit. The prop is probably too short, the canopy is too big and it’s definitely a builders kit but the results are really satisfying…someday #74, and #94 will join her on the shelf.
