Beautiful work as always, Miloslav! I don't believe Corsairs ever had the main wheels bays finished in exposed primer, however. As far as I'm aware, the primer was covered with the underside colour.

That's an interesting painting guide, Miloslav. What's its source?

That's what he sent me, the owner of this plane, Chuck Wahl.
It is now being restored. Colors are based on what they found on the plane.

 The model I built for him.

Thanks, Miloslav. I'm still not convinced that the wheel bays would be in exposed primer, but I can't fault you for doing it the way you did, based on the instructions you were given. It's still an excellent model!
