Good looking build! The only suggestion I'd make on your next Corsair build is to apply the kill marks over the tape seal decal, or simply move the kill marks more under the cockpit and avoid the overlap all together. Or, was that the way it really was on the plane? I could see how it could happen in the field. Congrats!

Thanks for the FYI.  I cannot remember if this is how the tape was applied in rhe field.  I noticed for this Corsair version there where fabric surfaces on the wings.  Do you know if later F4Us replaced the fabric n the wing

s with metail?

The later -1D Corsairs that carried rockets had metal plating added under the wings to protect the fabric from the rocket exhausts. I think the -4s and later were all metal. However, I'm no expert so hopefully someone more knowledgeable will have a clearer answer for you.
