Jerry Bates' first release of 2017 is the F4U Corsair modelled at 1/5.5th scale and 89 inch wingspan.

The Belair Parts Set includes laser cut parts from Jerry's original CAD files and includes Corsair gull wing wing spars, wing ribs, elevator and tail cores, tail and fin ribs, formers, fuselage formers and bulkheads, plus fuselage jigs, tailplane spars plus many smaller items. 

The parts set will save hours of tedious cutting and parts are etched with their plan numbers for easy identification.
