I've said it before, but I'd really like to see the reconstruction of the XF4U-1 Corsair, complete in its overall silver, red, yellow, & blue paint scheme. I'm not sure if the original drawings for the prototype still exist, but it would make for a great walk around lesson in immediate pre-war technology to have one available on the tarmac. From the little "bobmlet" bays in each outer wing panel to the forward juxtaposed cockpit, it would make a super display next to the production versions on the aishow circuit. It might be slim pickings finding that early version of the Double Wasp though!
