I can help you out. We have one locally owned by Vintage Wings Canada.
And a well known local R/C builder took the time to build a scale version complete with folding wings which he could fold or deploy on the runway. He said he had about 400 hours into building & perfecting the wings.
A skill is developed through constant practice with a passion to improve, not bought.
Nice photos, thanks!

If anyone is ever in Adelaide near the airport there is a Corsair under "restoration" at classic jets museum. Worth a look.

I have wanted to see one of these for years and at Duxford last year I finally got the chance. As stunning to look at in real life as in the pictures and just a gorgeous plane to watch flying...
