Quote from: frank2056 on January 16, 2022, 11:45:54 AMAccording to Wikipedia, the Wright R-1820 Cyclone in the Buffalo had a diameter: 54.25 in (1,378 mm) vs 52.8 in (1,342 mm) for the Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp in the Corsair... so it's probably a minor scale difference/loose cowl.The main question is what'll happen to the rest of the airframe when you give it an engine with twice the performance...
Quote from: Dizzyfugu on January 17, 2022, 12:51:15 AMI pimped a Buffalo in a similar fashion a while ago: it received a new engine (a planned R-2600 turned out to be too long), a different tail and slightly longer wings (all with square tips), a fuselage plug behind the cockpit and an F4U "bubble canopy".1:72 Brewster 'Bison' Mk. Ic, aircraft 'FA-S/A-51-41' of 82 Squadron, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF); Morotai/New Guinea, August 1944 (Whif/Matchbox kit conversion) by Dizzyfugu, on Flickr
