Very nice factory-fresh Gull-Wing bird!

John,
Corsairs in any scale are one of my favorite WWII props. Thanks for sharing your well built F4U-1 Birdcage.

My only suggestion to you is that a overall mat clear coat would be more representative of the real aircraft.

I finished this May of this year. Decals are the kits for Maj. Gregg Boyington's VMF-214 bird. I should have dirtied it up but just couldn't bring myself to hide that nice finish! Tri color scheme with salmon colored wheel wells.---John
