Comments from Chris Crowx regarding the Hasegawa 1/48 F4U-5N Corsair. It is fine and the only issues I can think of are there is a mould seam on the fuselage just ahead of the cockpit that needs a bit of cleanup. No big deal but be careful as it is near some other detail that you don't want to lose. I also recall a spreader bar in the forward fuselage just ahead of the wing that helped fit there a bit. Overall it fits very well and is a lovely kit. I would suggest that a bit of detail added to the cockpit sidewalls would be nice as they are bare above the consoles and the cockpit painting instructions are suspect in the cockpit.
