Never going to finish this one in time for the deadline, but i think its the right place to start, so here goes:

waiting for some parts for my corsair, so i put it on hold.

i have been reseraching the F3D for quite a while and got the tigger vac, so no turning back now. this is what you get:

last, but not least the references. i collected a lot of pics, but wartime photos are scarce. the restos of the doorguards and museum planes have to be used with a grain of salt, most are later electronic warfare aircraft just painted black.

the books (all very necessairy):

havent built a full airplane vac in large scale (only 72 and armor), so this will be quite a challenge

i want to do WF-17, because it has mission marks and was used on a Mig 15 kill. i dont know the number of the aircraft, as its very hard to find these out. i made an excel sheet with all known planes, their names, mission marks and stars as well as numbers if they are availible. here is the pic:

can anyone read the names? these are not the pilot names (these are known - no pilot names were painted on the aircraft), they seem the be the crewchiefs
