    Beautiful work, as ever, Clave !

    I can say this, it is strange to sit in a Corsair, with one's posterior all of 11 feet off the ground: I sat in one in a museum here in NZ, a couple of decades ago.

    Kind Regards, Uyraell.

    Thanks!

    They had huge props I believe, which led to the whole 'bent wing' idea in the first place... I can't image what a nightmare they would be for take-off and landing, with that massive nose and the torque-effect from that prop...

    From memory, the prop on a Corsair is 13 foot 1 and 1|2 inches in diameter, compared to 11 ft 10 and 5|8ths of an inch on a Thunderbolt.
    This makes the Corsair prop one of the largest to enter service for single-seaters.

    Additional thought regarding my last post:
    There *would have been* huge torque-effect from the crankshaft and prop on the Corsair had it not been for one little design curiosity.

    The vertical fin is actually offset at an angle of about 5+1|2 degrees (leading edge of fin to left) from straight along the thrust-line (IIRC), precisely to counteract the torque to which you refer. {It should also be remembered: the use of contraprops on some aircraft types was another method of counteracting/minimising torque-effect. Witness the contraprop Spitfires, late Seafires, and Fairey Gannet, Westland Wyvern.}
    From memory, in the FG1 and FG2 that offset could be adjusted on the ground to a maximum of 7 degrees. In scale models, the difference is not sufficient to be notice-able for a static model, and is only barely perceptible in a flying scale model.

    The addition of the stall-strip to the leading edge of the left wing, to enable the Corsair to operate from a carrier deck is the final refinement to the above anti-torque design, which could not have been anticipated on the drawing board.

    Respectful Regards, Uyraell.

    Love the VMF-214 of Maj.Greg Boyington.As a kid I watched the series "Black Sheep Squadron" I even built a model by Revell based on the series,no paint just put it together with glue.At 9-10 years old it was my first model built.I hung it from my ceiling with fishing line.

    Thanks for posting these Clave, somehow I missed these! This has always been one of my favorite planes.

    Hi redeerude, I watched this series also each week with my dad when I was a kid. I had a Corsair model too, it was already dark blue plastic like the color of the planes so I never did paint mine, just added the decals. But, I think my first models put together were Star Wars fighters: X-wing, and Darth Vaders TIE fighter. I even had the VIPER fighter and Cylon fighter from the original Battlestar Galatica series too.
