I did this kit right when it came out.Well,I tried and I wasn't very successful.I had a hard time fitting wings together evenly and at the same angle.Hellcat from the same author was much more to my liking.

I'll leave it as it is. Things may go wrong with this method.
It's old model so we shouldn't expect awesome detail like in new issued models.
Anyway, those specks can be treated as ''weathering effects''

After cutting out parts, you can try to soak them a bit with water using sponge. Of course, do not overwhelm. When they're half dried you can mold parts.

Ok, here's the progress with Corsair. Cockpit and engine imitation were taken from ModelCard's F4U.
