Go for it, Miroslav! A master builder arrives with a Corsair! I'll be watching with interest.

Miloslav,

     I'm pulling up my chair  :popcorn: ​, and I'll be taking notes as I have both the Tamiya's F4U-1, & -1A. plus I'll be buying the -1D as well. I already have one question, why the Eduard Brassin Engine?

As open cowling, Eduard's engine is better and more detailed.

Worse is the seedy Gray Matter Figures. The partition between the cockpit and Engine Accessory bay is much smaller. It has to be rebuilt or made new. Also, side covers are not good. Straight streaks are bent.

Miloslav,

  Thanks for the explanation. Can't wait to see how you go about detailing these areas.
