It's stunning: Tamiya released their Corsair more than 25 years ago. About 1997 I build a model and remember that I asked myself the same question about the engine. I think last time I also kind of cheated.

Might have to do some cutting and gluing. The 2800 on the far left (Engines & Things?) is a later model with a bolted gear case as found on later P-47s, among others. If the diameter is right, you might take the gear case from the MD and graft it onto the (E&T?) one.

I was gonna say, look for an earlier model 2800. Look in the Quickboost line for something that would work.

Oh yeah, it does look like a Quickboost piece. I was just rummaging through an old kit and found a bolted case R2800 like the one above and it was an E&T, which I think is long defunct.

Because of the different position and angle of the cockpit opening (trapezoid and not rectangular) there was a unique sliding rails configuration.
