A Nice Corsair is always welcome - as to the cockpit parts normally it's easier to paint as much as possible as sub-assemblies before joining it all together, but it depends on the model. I always tend to paint the instrument panels at a minimum separately.

That's looking great Rob, and it shows how a cockpit decal can be effective, unlike the ones on my A-10! Keep up the good work and post more pics, as you know I've got a personal interest in this one!

Looking good - for pacific paint it depends a lot on just who's corsair it was and where it was based.
Navy ones on carriers stayed quite clean, but Marine ones operating off coral strips got very beaten up and faded a lot.
The markings from the box are for a carrier based one, so a light fading on the upper surfaces and some light wear is probably about right. If you think about it there isn't a lot loose on a carrier deck to create chips, and the fading is caused by light so if it spends 40% of it's time under the deck it will fade less than if it was always on deck.
At the end though, it's your model so weather it how you like

Sorry for the delay in replying to this, I only just thought of something today and it should have occured to me when you posted!
As I have the exact same kit in my stash ( in fact, it *is* my stash! ), if you want I can take some pictures to show you where the holes for the rockets need to be drilled, and that way you can have rockets again. It might be too late now, but let me know. Thanks...
