Here you can see F4U, F2G and my design.

According to wikipedia F2G was only 4 cm longer than F4U :o

Anyway in my definitive version, the plane will be 72 cm longer than standard F4U (measured in the base of propeller), so 1 cm more in my 1/72 model. 8)

I have moved radiator a little forward,

What if Zombi Fighters?



Why Allison 1710? It is what I have in my spares box, from an old Revell P-38 :icon_surprised:

This is just the beginning, they can loose more pieces of skin ... :icon_ninja:

'Stalin's Zero' is some absolutely inspired work!

I really like your P-40/P-51 combos too, favoring the P-40 fuselage with P-51 wings & tail but both are a feast for the eyes.

I’ve always wondered what a Corsair or Fury would look like with a big honk’n turboprop engine. Kind of like the Piper Enforcer conversion of the Mustang. Just throwing this figment of my imagination out there.

IMO top one is beautiful, and bottom one is extreme.

I'm quite partial to the Dora-Vetlro myself. Seems to embody sleekness!

Great stuff, Señor Ysi!

I keep thinking eliminate the "hot seat" and rear rotor, add stub wings with rocket launchers or missiles and it'd look very Luft-intimidating.

Whether it could actually fly like that I leave to the experts.

P.S. I like that radial engine Sturmovik. I've had plans to do something similar with a single-seat version in styrene for a while now.
