Part Two: F2G Corsair Cockpit.

April 5, 2020 · in Aviation · · 3 · 2.3K

My first F2G that I built in 1984/85 had a -1A Cockpit and radial engine. I got smart and did some research then went to Mesa, Arizona/USA in 1986 to see the only remaining F2G Corsair at Doug Champlin's aircraft museum. I took some photo's of the airplane, but was denied access to the cockpit. Doug had a local photographer that was a member of his museum and here are a few 3"x5" color prints of the cockpit and rear deck.

I now felt that I had enought photos to build an accurate cockpit. I already had photos of the engine, canopy, tail plane, wheel wells and the wing air inlets.

Part 3 will show the finished unpainted F2G Cockpit.

My coffee is getting cold, so I'll say good by for now. RJW!
