Flyzone Corsair....with a little paint

Hey guys,

Just finished my Flyzone Corsair and wanted to share some pics.

It took 3 tail wheel retracts before I got one that would work. I vacuformed the gear doors and as much as I would've liked to add a tail hook, the design of the stabilizer didn't allow it. I also added flaps, made a semi scale radial engine and corrected the vertical stabilizer, rudder, and tail cone to a more scale look.

I applied flite metal to the canopy and added the antenna masts. The airframe was then airbrushed using latex paint and weathered with various acrylics and chalk.

Haven't flown her yet as I am in the middle of radios at the moment, but I used my old radio to slow the retracts and bought a servo slower from hobby king for one retract so I could stagger them when retracted.


Think that's about it, enjoy the pics

Lovely looking work. Best of luck with the maiden. If she flies half as good as she looks you have a keeper.

Thanks guys,

I have downloaded the videos of this one flying and am encouraged. Seems like a solid airframe. I hope I can get it in the air this season.

Looks fantastic! Just the right amount of weathering (it's so easy to overdo it).

SVX -

Very nice..!! Lots of work on those flaps and the recessed motor. Really pays off for you. Getting that 'weathered blue jeans look' isn't easy or these factories would learn how, lol..!

Everything inside my head screams "don't fly it" because it looks so good!!.... but for me a plane should be flown in most cases
