I've been thinking it's time I built a plane again. I was going to do the Tempest but have wanted to build my favourite prop plane and Ernie's hotel build sort of tipped the balance that way. Anyways, I dug through the stash and pulled out the most disheveled kit of the three. It disheveled as I had dumped a bunch of the leftover kit and AM buys from my other two Corsairs into the box. There's several sets of paint masks, some incomplete, leftover parts, Aires bits for a Trumpeter Corsair, rubber tires. One critical bit, the main spar is assembled in the folded position. As the plane I'm planning to do was built without a folding wing I had to swap that out along with the requisite sprue for an unfolded one. Here's the plane I'm planning to do: The weather beaten and touched up paint job has a certain appeal to me and will fit in nicely with my two other Corsairs.
