F4U Corsair, Soviet,
« on: January 03, 2019, 09:42:04 am »
OK people, somebody recently posted an image of a Soviet operated F4U Corsair, possibly from on-line media.
Where is it please?
I am not a TWIT or a FACEBLOCKER, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

You should build a Soviet Barracuda to go with it.

Try dizzyfugu - Google threw up pictures by him, Jim.  See https://www.google.com/search?q=Soviet+F4U+Corsair&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiJ4OC3mdLfAhU5UxUIHQipBwkQ_AUIDigB&biw=1920&bih=938#imgrc=9YZI_uxt3eCN9M:

The original concept comes from PantherG (somewhere in his vast/long thread in the respective forum section); the Lend Lease F4U I built is actually based on one of two profile drawings - one was in ex USN colors, the other carried a more Soviet paint scheme like a late La-5/7, with two greys on the upper surfaces and blue undersides.
