Corsair Pics

While doing some research on Corsairs I came across this photo of a famous pilot and his plane. I couldn't believe the rough condition of the wing. I suppose lots of these warbirds took plenty of damage and probably had hasty repairs done to them. Hmmm...maybe I don't need to wet sand that wing after all!!....LOL

Cool pic. I think most of the rough wing skin you see is distortion (wrinkling) of the skin due to flight loads. The plane is probably fully fuelled, fully armed and maybe pulling a couple of g's in a climb. The wrinkles between the ribs and stringers are not permanent but the dents sure are!
While we're on the topic of rough wings, here's a shot of my 1/12 scale Corsair after the spar joint failed in flight. It happened up high so I had time to warn the other pilots...just missed a big Cap on final approach by inches as it spiralled down to a miracle landing, didn't even break the prop!
