Does anyone make a 1/32 F4U-5/5N conversion?

I'd like to convert my Trumpeter -4 to a -5 or -5N (optimally my Tamiya -1D if possible). I'm wondering if there's a conversion out there I could pick up. Thanks for the help! :)

I hope we will be able to find what we need sooner than later. Fingers crossed. (I know Biggtim is working on remastering a -2 night fighter conversion so maybe someone will come up with the ones we want too.)

Yes, indeed I am. The list of things to master is growing quickly! I will add this to it.

With the -1C, I think its more about the wing panels (top and bottom) and the gun shrouds, than the barrels.

I think 20mm Hispano barrels in 1/32 should be readily available from somewhere!

Here's the progress on the F4U-2 Radome, so far.

Before (original AMS version):

Now onto the rest of it...
