Looking for a free Corsair

    Hello all!
    As some of you may have noticed I have not been building much lately. Two reasons for this - lack of time and feel its time for a change. I love card modeling but I want to try something new for a bit. I want to take a stab at doing a recolor. I plat IL2 Sturmovik 1946 and I have my own livery for my corsair. I want to try and do a recolor so I would like to find a freebie to try it out. Fiddlers Green has a decent one for purchase and failing being able to find a free download I will purchase this one. Penny saved is a penny earned though. Heck who knows - if the recolor goes well maybe Chip (pretty sure thats his name) will add it to the corsairs that come with the purchase.

    Sooooo to make a long post just a bit longer, anyone know of a freebie out there?
    Thanks!
    Chris

    Chris,

    Kancho offers a free download Corsair in 1/72. I didn't build it since I'm a fan of modern a/c only but the quality seems to be okay for this small scale.

    Cheers, Old Rutz

    Darn, no pics :( I do so like a pic. I have never been disappointed with one of his models though. I will likely go that route - any pics would be appreciated if anyone has built one of them - otherwise thanks for pointing me right! I cant believe I didnt look at dewaynes site myself..... Feel free to smack me now!

    Ohhhhh man - choices choices - he has one as 1:33 Vought F4U-1A_1 plus two at 1:50 a F4U-4 and F4U-1D The D is actually the model I fly in game so I will prolly go that route - or maybe get them all and pick after that - I have no willpower.... Darn thing is in new zealand livery though ;) no matter if I am recoloring though! HAH!

    Well, he did state that he was looking for a free one!

    If it wasn't for that fact, I would recommend Will's Corsair!

    That is a nice one! If the model came in electronic format I would consider it. Thanks Dragos :D

    Barry,
    That is the very plane I am going to attempt to recolor. Is there any chance I could get a few more pics? straight on front, from back, each side, top and bottom? If you dont want to post them here you can mail them to me cgutzmer@gmail.com
    Just when you have time - dont go out of your way :D
    Thanks
    Chris

    Chris,

    Just a suggestion buddy, but I would edit your e-mail address a little so the bots and spiders don't pick it up.
