I will represent the Corsair of Fernado Soto Henriquez, an Hondurian pilot that obtained 3 kills again Salvadorian aircrafts during the "soccer war"

Some modifications will be needed of course. The antenna on the right side of the fuselage in front of the cockpit have to be removed. I  have placed a piece of Evergreen inside the half fuselage and fille the hole of the antenna with Squadron Green putty.
The wings are assembled and needed for lot of Squadron and Vallejo putty. For the wheel traps I used Tamiya putty... to fill ejection holes that were really misplaced...

I've removed the fixations of the canopy; too big and too visible. Sanding was necessary so the canopy became opaque. With Tamiya Compound and then a bath of Klir, things are much better now.
I've also made some ameliorations and used Mr Surfacer to fill little defaults in the Squadron putty

Today I've painted the propeller, the engine and details of the cockpit interior: seatbelts on seat; instruments; etc...

Thank you  :))

Gloss varnish and Tamiya panel Liner applied then matt varnish. Some weathering still needed.
For the instrument panel, I've used some instrument decals I own. No search of authenticity but just to obtain a nice result...
