Very interested in watching your progress on this model.

ESM seems to always underestimate the weight of their kits. Like your Corsair, the ESM Hawker Typhoon is listed around the 14.5-15lbs, but anyone who has built the model has a flying weight of between 18-20lbs.
The good news is the added weight doesn't affect the flying characteristics of the model. Hopefully this will be tue for the Corsair also.

Cheers,
Peter
