The Corsair82: 82% F4U-1A Corsair

Shop Pic 01

After two attempts at building the Corsair replica, I decided to start from the begining. I needed a shop that had the room for the project and the tools required to build it. It will also house the finished aircraft.

I started by building what resembles a covered bridge. The front and rear walls (missing in this picture) are not structural. I got all of the materials at a building supply store that was going out of buisness. That saved me more than 50%. I also built it myself, (with the help of friends,) saving the cost of a contractor.
