There's a Corsair only sheet in the works in 32nd I believe.

Oops, there was talk about 1/32 a few months ago.

Since the big blowup and exodus from "The other site" I no longer buy anything from that decal maker. B)

The "ignore" function is nice, if you get my drift :D

Actually Tim I don't get your drift. There's no one on this site I would "ignore". ;)

Wow, that would be cool John, the same reason I bought the ZM boxing of the Mustang K with English markings and also wanted to do a ZM kit :book:

I have been trying to make up my mind on exactly WHICH -1 to build. Initially I thought I'd do "De Fabe" but I have several that are in very similar schemes. I MAY stick with that one but I AM considering one of the RN birds instead. We will see. ;)

As a aside, I feel like Tamiya will release a RN -1D or -1A at some point. The kit has the mid-fuselage vents that were, as far as I know, only on RN a/c. All they would have to do I think is add new wing tips and decals.

I believe that RN seatbelts are on the PE fret too. 

Considering Robert Hampton Gray is the only Allied soldier honoured with a monument placed by the Japanese and that he flew a Corsair, that would be great if they did.

Yeah that would be cool, he grew up here in Nelson, my mom and dad knew his parents very well..... all sorts of stuff named after him here, not to get too far off topic, but his brother was the first nelson boy killed in the war, and he was the last......

Now I’m not a huge Corsair fan, but I could seriously get into an FAA bird.

I'm considering it for a -1D build at a later date. Overall GSB, etc.
