It looks great if I may say, but IIRC the Corsair has just 3 blades on the propeller ;) . Keep it up
Thanks 4 the coments....
Mystikos :: agreed some Corsair variants do only have 3 blades. some also have 4. See reference image. also I chose 4 as I want to do a Spitfire after this and it has 3, therefor giving the final image and animation some contrast.
Earlier versions had 3-blade prop and a strut canopy, later had 4-blade and bubbletop.
Awesome subject. Letīs see more.

Yes listen to Dan: he knows everything.
And I mean everything
A little update....I had a real problem with the canopy. It will look a heap better after a good material/texture is applied.
I think I am ready for materials.......
Consider modeling the canopy struts separately instead of bumpmapping them, they will look much more realistic.
That pitot tube looks like a plain cylinder, must be detailed. Widening the tires may help too.
Your right Dan . I was getting lazy and it was getting late when I cheated with the pitot tube. I will also add some detail into the canopy. I dont know why but the canopy seeems to be the hardest part for me on this project. 8-)
I needed a distraction from modelling so I tried my hand at texturing for the first time (Well 1st time I seriously tried to texture something). The fusalage texture is a little bent out of shape and I am trying to figure out the best way to fix it.
I havent done the underside yet. I used a FS2000 texture as a guide. I will post the link as soon as I find it again.
The site where I found a FS2000 skin, which I used as a reference is http://www.aluminumcloud.com/
Its far from perfect but I have learnt alot from this little project. I will be keen to do some more in the new year. 8-)
