    Greetings to all,
    The Corsair will be my contribution to the groupbuild.

    In case you don´t already know it, Hobby Boss got the wings on their F4U-5s wrong. The kits have the fabric covered wings of the -4 version, not the all metal covered wings of the -5. Maybe you don´t care, but if you want to build a correct -5 you have to do some filling sanding and scribing.

    Cheers, Reinhard

    Thank for that one. I did not know that. I received it about two years ago and I thought that this 3 years period is perfect for me to contribute. Each of my projects takes me something about pregnancy (9 month or longer) due to little time for a hobby.
    Thanks again.

    Hi Lukasz @dalixan!
    This is a great choice!
    Taking into account Reinhard’s advices, a bit of filling/sanding/rescribing is all that it takes to address the “fabric effect situation”.
    But should you wish to “leave-as-is”, again, no harm done.
    Translating what we say here in my country: “a many will see, a few will notice”.
    So, either way is ok!
    Waiting for your progress, my friend, this is going to be super!

    Hello Lukasz @dalixan
    Welcome to our Korean War group build. The Corsair is my all time favorite, so I too shall be following your build………….. You picked as good one !! Should you run into any problems along the way during your build, please let us know, as I have this kit in my stash and have plans to build it later as part of the Korean War GB. On the other side of this, if you happen to like anything please mention that too.
