Indeed.  For comparison, the real world trainer version can be seen back at Reply #30.

Two-seat profile looks awesome, but I think vertical stabilizer augmentation might be desirable (from both aaerodynamic and aesthetic viewpoints)

Yes, both increased vertical tail height and the addition of a dorsal fin would seem indicated.  Ideally, a blend of the two in aesthetic harmony.

I'm normally a tolerant man, but nope, that's just not right.

Not right at all.

^ Seconded!  :smiley:
Maybe a design with end-plates for the horizontal tail?
Which would move it further towards the Fairchild Brigand from Crimson Skies.

Here's a comparison of the standard F4U R-2800 installation and the R-4360 installation
of the F4U-1 WM testbed.



Note that the length from the firewall to the front of the cowling is pretty much the same,
the installation used a standard cowling with a new section added to the rear.
