Here are some new shots of my corsair. I sprayed a coat of future on and added the decals. This particular corsair will be that of Lt. Danny Cunningham's of VF17 the Jolly Rogers. I wanted to do Cunningham's Corsair because it was different than many of the Ira Kepford, Chico Freeman, Roger Hedrick and Tommy Blackburn Corsairs that I have often seen modeled. Cunningham's was rare in that it had split numbers as part of its aircraft as ID while the others I mentioned while having the larger Aircraft numbers did not have the Split numbers which were more common on the later F4U-1D Corsairs that were painted in all Navy Blue.
