  1. There seems to be a misconception with that Corsair and the story that floats around regarding Frazer's encounter, which occurred on 22 June 1945. In the photo above, that FG-1D (88441) of VMF-113, piloted by 1Lt. Hunchar, was involved in a ground incident on 4 July 1945 with an FG-1D (88339) also of VMF-113, piloted by 2Lt. Harke. The WO entry provides these details: "On 4 July Hunchar in 88441 was rolling out after landing when he was hit from behind by 2Lt Harke in 88399 who had landed too fast and close. Both aircraft were damaged beyond repair." Also note the drop tanks still in place, which are usually dropped in combat. https://ww2aircraft.net/forum/threads/battle-damaged-aircraft-of-ww2.15431/page-37
  2. But, he is a Hero on the left and this too shall be swept under the rug.

  4. Resurrecting this thread to see if anyone converted to the LED setup on their cars and if Dapper really did make an LED conversion for us. I have looked on their site and have been unable to find anything on them.
  5. Find a shop that will give you a good price and let them do it on their rack
  6. Out of all these Candidates.... And this is the best they can do....
  7. I am really surprised some Museum here in the U.S. hasn't gone after one of these birds. Or at leas the one that wasn't totally destroyed
  8. I am going the retractable belt route on mine. I had the regular style belts and they can be a pain trying not to get them caught in the door or sitting on them when getting in the car. Some folks go with Racing Belts for that cool factor, but they become a pain after a while.
