Restoration Project: Corsair F4U-1

Restoration Project: Corsair F4U-1

This is great news; a good friend of mine has just acquired the wreckage remains of a Corsair F4u-1.


The long-term plan is to restore this Corsair to its original specification as a standing exhibit. It would be wonderful to restore to flying condition but the projected cost as it stands is quite overwhelming and to achieve flight status would probably double that.




We will be setting up a dedicated blog and website to record progress on this restoration. Part one of the project is to develop a master lines plan which will be used to design the jigs required to rebuild the fuselage and wings.

Any contributions to the project, regardless of how small will be greatly appreciated.
