This is very early progress, 2 days of work!

want to tell me what you think and what i've done wrong this time? Are there really supposed to be yellow strips on top of the wing? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

well here it is!

Hi I16fan,

Starting to look quite sweet! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

However, the stripes should be somewhat like invasion stripes, the space betreen them should be black.

{EDIT} As you can see, they're at the bottom of the wing as well!

I happen to have kit of this particular plane and have scanned the boxart and instructions for you. I *should* have the decals somewhere too as I did not build this version. The decals might provide a close up of the insignia. Could look it up if you like.

Teh other pics are als of F4U-7, taken in 2003 at La Ferté Alais airshow. Yes I know, I need a new scanner... could scan the much larger @ work if you'd like to make this scheme as well.
(for the insignia, looks like a winged skull or something)
Can scan the other things much larger as well, if you like. Just let me know.

I look forward to the final result, even if I'm not French! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif (Dutch had SeaFuries)

Good luck!

Other (obvious) comments:

- just noted the different style of the text
- missing anti-glare on the nose
- fuselage insignia looks too large, compared to both kit instructions and my photo's.
- wing insignia and stripes should be moved more towards the wingtip
- and my scans are of 15F.20 and not 15F.17, which is the plane you made the skin of. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Just my ‚"ö¨0.02...
