This is going to be a very cool build journal to watch…………. This just happens to be my favorite airplane, and I can remember building several of these monster F4U’s as a kid.
Back then there was a TV show called “Blacksheep Squadron”…………..I would watch it once a week on TV with my Dad. The TV show was very loosely based on VMF-214. I mean it was so loosely based, the way one surviving Blacksheep member put it, “They got 3 things right……… The plane was the F4U Corsair, our Squadron designator was VMF-214, and “Pappy Boyington” was our Unit Commander.”
That pretty much sums the TV show up in a nutshell. But I watched it for the Corsairs and not the plot lines.
Looking forward to the next installment. Please keep us posted.
