Definitely a believeable one; that wing looks made for floats and 'twould be easy to stress.

Fantastic Corsair  :o       Good for around 500mph and middle east use today.    Exactly kind of plane for my kit-bash air force. 
Use for combined strikes flying with Slowy Jets.

Imagine flying clean and light for an air show !

Yes. I posted some pix of it on the other site ages ago. I'll have to get it out of storage and put some pix up.

It'll have to be a USMC shore-based bird. The view over the nose is terrible!

I am thinking in a Jet Corsair.
Is there any aerodynamical reason for the wings to have that special configuration?
Would it have sense in a tricycle jet version?
Is it a better option for attack missions (remember Stuka)?

Thanks.
