With reference to post 54 above, the F4U depicted on the EagleCals decal sheet was flown by Kepford and is dated Jan 31st, 1944. He crashed the Corsair at Piva Yoke after receiving combat damage.
Yes, it does help and with the account of the battle that took place when he used water injection to evade pursuing zero's, this airframe is not the one since the combat in question took place, according to a source I read, on February 19th, 1944. However, I think with a little detective work, I can uncover the bureau number of said aircraft and can most likely duplicate it using the vast majority of the Eagle Cals "kepford" sheet (which I already have). As an added bonus, the EagleCals sheet gives generic bureau numbers with which one can make another aircraft. Nice touch peeps!
