F4U Wheel Well Detail Pics

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Was down at Pima today, and took the opportunity to shoot the wheel well to document all the hydraulic plumbing therein.  This is an F4U-4, but the wheel wells are the same as the -1/1A/1D.  Note that there is a missing canvas cover over the opening on the inboard side, which on the other side is painted GSB as well.  Note that the hydraulic lines leading to the door actuators are missing here.

Now if Tamiya will just release a -4 Corsair!   

 

Ain't gonna happen.   But once Paul Fisher is back up and operational, I'm going to dance on his chest until he does a conversion for the Tamiya -1D :)  That's the main reason I went down there today was to top up the detail pics of the -4 in anticipation of that.

Great photos, Jennings!!!

Thanks!

 

If he does this, I'm sure I'll get a SEVERAL copies.  I love the -4 and -5 Corsairs.

Take Care,

Jim

That will be the first Fisher production in my modeling arsenal!
