Great work, Tx!
Really nice to see some restored Corsairs! Maybe the FHC bird?
Thank you for doing these repaints of currently airworthy Corsairs! I thought I would mention here that this Corsair is no longer owned by the Olympic Flight Museum. The aircraft was sold to Charles Somers in 2020, and has been based with his ever-growing collection of flying warbirds at McClellan Field in Sacramento, CA.
BTW, have you given any consideration to adding all of the factory stenciling and non-slip tape on the wings, as per the restoration?

Thanks for the compliment and for the intel. Good to know she's gone to a good home. As for the smaller Details. I would. But getting photos or images of those kinds of labels and stickers in good quality for reference material is very hard to find on the internet. And in getting Decals or stickers one can read on a model like this again. Unless you happen past an Airshow that's hosting this Aircraft and do a walkaround for all the smaller details and take photos for use like that? Going to the extent of making it 100% accurate is very hard.
Thank you for creating this but I'm wondering if you could double check the small Navy text on the vertical stabilizer (tail). The text seems to be mirrored/backwards and with an underlying overlap due to an alpha channel issue. (Note: The registration text below the elevators seems fine).
Currently using the latest beta service pack on the Blackbird/Milviz forums for reference. Version: 1.2.6_230502
Update: Thanks for the fix!
