My vision is to do it the closest thing to the photo and make it all inside in scratch

 

 

 

Here are some pictures of the inside as I want it to be ( in scratch )

The first think to do is the landing gear in scratch, then I need to cut the fuselage from part of the wings and the front of the main body

 

 

 

Thanks

Important note: This project, due to its nature, will go slowly and you have to be patient.

 

My goal is to complete it by the end of this year. Thanks !!

 

Here are some of the drawings that I use

 

 

I will not publish all the steps and give some examples to get an idea of the process

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is designed to have mobility although in the end it is fixed in position out

 

 

 

 

Any questions, please, I am at your service.

 

Thank you!!

After seeing what you did with the U-boat, this one will be a museum piece as well.  Will be watching for updates on both

It's so much fun to watch your Works In Progress! You are a craftsman and a skilled modeler and seeing how you work is inspirational.

I guess I'm not the only one who thinks F4U Corsairs are the cat's pajamas .. but I do. So I'm looking forward to your posts in this thread.

Thanks and both projects will require some patience and time, and I plan to make significant progress for this year

And I'll be working sometimes on one and sometimes on another. Thank you!

Wow.  Just wow.

All that is missing is the smell of Skydrol, and the lue oil for the oleos.

Almost a shame that all that exquisite metal work needs covering up with white paint.
