Whoa, the turboprop Corsair looks like the spitting image of the J2 Skyly from Sky Crawlers. Jolly nice job!  :thumbsup:
Cheers,

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

What is that little notch in the top of the cowling which is a bit behind the intake ? I though I had a 'miss-cast' part when you look at the resin cowling I have.

Just noticed,  Sabre tanks too.

The Australian one was done at about the same time as the Cavalier one.

Just got a F4U-5 kit that features those stub rocket launchers as underwing pylons. My question is, what else other that rockets can I hang from these? Could the stubs carry, say, a 250lb Mk.81 bomb or a 65 gal napalm tank, or only rockets?

     I can't remember what it is for, but it's an air inlet. I think it's for the oil cooler. we had a couple of Grumman Gulfstream I's based at my airport over the years. I'll try to check with one of the mechs. I might even still have a manual lying around. I can assure you it's an air inlet tho.
