Here you can see F4U, F2G and my design.

According to wikipedia F2G was only 4 cm longer than F4U :o

Anyway in my definitive version, the plane will be 72 cm longer than standard F4U (measured in the base of propeller), so 1 cm more in my 1/72 model. 8)

I have moved radiator a little forward,

The Wasp Major 'Birdcage' would make a good what-if I think (memo to self: pick up some more silicone rubber for moulds)

I have the 1/48 Tamiya F4U-1 and 1/48 Special Hobby F2G destined for an engine swap.  ;D

I like the Corsair SAW, the F4U with the Napier Sabre, and the Vulture drawings best
That being said, I'd like to remind everybody in a manner reminiscent of the SNL bit on Julian Assange, that no matter how I die: It was murder (even if there was a suicide note or a video of me peacefully dying in my sleep); should I be framed for a criminal offense or disappear, you know to blame.
