Choppa Nutta Yeah I was thinking that engine is absurdly large !! :)
Don't think I've seen a bubble top Corsair before....
Also something funky going on with the "Rudders"..... yes, that's a plural ;)
I wonder that's for ? some kind of anti torque trim device ? maybe ?
Anyhow cool project and great colour scheme :)

Jean Pierre CULIS-FERY @Choppa Nutta: This version was originaly built to fight against Kamikaze plane at low altitude. Only 10 were built and no one see combat operation. The engine is the P&W R4360 (28 cylinder, and 3000 horesepower. For the tail you are right it's an anti torque device. Afterwar these plane were sell as racer and several had sucess in national's airace. In 1999 Bob Odegaard take back this plane and another F2G (blue 72) to flight condition. Sadly i will lost his live in the second plane. the "modern" 57 is my subjet and have the particularity to have a second seat. This is the last F2G to fly. Best regards.
