  1. Don't know the exact dimensions to help you out as not my area of knowledge, but a quick Google search, eg: "Don Gentiles Spitfire Mk Vb MDT markings", shows an out of production Aeromaster, The Eagle Squadron, decal sheet with Gentiles mount, MD*T which also has RAF roundels included to compare sizes. The sheet number is 48-364(A/B). Hope this is of some help to you. The same Google search brings up mad pics, models, profiles also. Alfonso
  2. Gentlemen, Ladies, LSPers, From what I've gathered over many years for an F4U-1 and some Early -1"A" -"Salmon" ( with Indian red paste in the chromate base to achieve the shade color/tone)- on everything as a secondary primer coat in interior and exterior application. Fuselage, tail sections, outer wing panels, cowling interiors. This is excluded in... - Cockpit- dull dark green/interior green derivative of a Vought/Brewster/Goodyear application and variations based on paint stocks and manufacture at the time. Excluded are from "Salmon" are the tops/ bottoms of the wing center section, parts of forward fuselage, eg: accessory section covers and sometimes tail gear wheel bay, colors explained below. -"Yellow" zinc chromate primer- exterior of center wing section throughout production. At times the tail gear bay and engine accessory section depending on production block time frame saw "Yellow" zinc chromate in these areas. But later became standard on F4U-1"A" production. There's more to this but these are basics. If not clear, as I know most times I really suck at typing my thoughts, lmk and I'll do my best to clarify. Alfonso Corsair fanatic

  10. IIRC, and may be wrong, they were ”cut down” T-28 props. Don’t recall the wingtip tanks but wanna say, and probably wrong as heck, or "close" to right, or left but T-33ish wing tip tanks?? Alfonso
