I found the new livery I'm going to paint her in...

Vought V-166 F4U-4 Corsair (N713JT c/n 9297) "Korean War Hero"

Manufactured in 1945 under USN BuNo. 97143. In 1951 it flew combat missions in Korea, marked as A-416 with Naval Reserve Squadron VF884 aboard USS Boxer (CV21), and marked as H-308 with Naval Reserve Squadron VF653 aboard USS Valley Forge (CV45). It was withdrawn from service on July 5, 1956. From 1960 to 1970 it served with the Honduran AF as FAH-613. It was sold to the USA in 1970, registered as N96042.

In 1981 it was bought by Joseph "Joe" Tobul and his son James "Jim" Tobul, rebuild, and flown again on December 8, 1991, registered as N713JT. It was marked as JT-416, VF653, USS Valley Forge (left side) and JT-416, VF884, USS Boxer (right side). It crashed November 10, 2002, at Columbia, North Carolina, killing the pilot Joe Tobul.

FMS just sent me these photos they wanted added to the 1700MM Corsair product page in the German version of their catalog. Looks like we get our choice of grey or blue after all!

Nice...I still think I am going for the grey version, so I hope they will still offer it as well.

Besides the gear doors and the black on the prop hub, this looks exactly like the Durafly version.

Oh how I wish we'd see this size in foam.

Watch the end after the landing.
