Corsair landing light location, photographs?


Recommended Posts

Can anyone point me to a good photograph of the landing light (sometimes referred to as the "approach light") on the -1D Corsair wing leading edge? It should be on the left wing just inboard of the guns. The 1/48 Tamiya kit has the incorrect earlier circular landing light on the wing underside that I need to fill and replace with the above. The kit has a small rectangular panel that looks like it's in the right place but I'd like to confirm.

 

On a similar note, where was the gun camera window located? There appears to be another similar rectangular panel I can open up on the right side, so if that's supposed to be the gun camera I can open that up too while I'm at it, but I would like some confirmation.

 

Thanks
