    Not the best work I have ever done, but it good enough for government work. I added Cross hairs to the Gun Site for my Corsair

    I finished the Instrument panel , with a clear circular gun sight, and the two side panels I may split the Canopy and have an open cockpit, might even go as far as to make it a sliding Canopy MAYBE LOL!!!! That's all I am doing Tonight, not the best, but it is close enough for government work

    Thanks Mike I appreciate the nice comment Sir. Mike I have been meaning to ask you about Decal Dennis, How is he doing these Days ??
    P.S. the work on the Corsair continues I taped off the bottom to add the Flat Whit you see on many of the F4U-1A's, Then back to adding more of the Warning and access labels. :way_to_go:

  6. Dennis is doing just fine. He's working with me today here at the pawnshop. He's been doing a lot of 3D printing these days.

    I have never installed so many warning, and access labels (decals) on any other plane like this F4U-1A Corsair EVER, there are over 90 some nomenclature decals that I have put on and I still have more to install. Then on to the weathering to finish

    I just finished the bottom of the Corsair. I added exhaust trails and gun smoke, still need to add the weathering on the bottom of the wing. That will finish what I am going to do on the bottom. All this has been a first for me. I use to think why spend all that time doing all this, the minute you start flying the plane you can not see it any way LOL!!!! The last two weeks has either been to cold, Temps Below Zero with wind chills of -15 to -35 or way to windy to fly. Our weather has warmed up, but now the winds have howling 20 to 30 gust over 40 for the last three days
