Guess the PSS Plane Name Game

This is a famous plane and my co-worker , Phillip Otto is working flat out to have it ready next weekend.
Glen, if you can tell me before anyone else dose I buy you a beer at Volkies next weekend.

Hi Piet,
Can I also win a beer, I would guess with that low cockpit, and big round nose , it would be a racer with a big radial, probably one of the later GEEBEE racers?

Piet Rheeders said...

Hi Mike,

You have 2 Guesses left. So only the first correct answer will get that cold beer.

Okay Piet, my best guess for a beer is a Chance Vought F4U Corsair
How did I do? - Did I win a beer?

Glen said...

If the Corsair is not the right answer, my next best guess is a Hughes H-1 Racer. How am I doing?

Evan Shaw said...

I recon it's the Corsair.
I need that beer!

Hi Piet,
As it is far from complete and you gave me 3 guesses.
It's a radial for sure, but maybe the cowling and canopy are off.
So it could be Harvard (Texan).

Piet Rheeders said...

Hi Glen your second guess was right
So the beer goes your way.

Hughes H-1 Racer

Glen said...

Yeah baby, we have a winner. That cold beer is going to taste so sweet, it may even lead to a few more! Thanks Piet.
PS - Hows the Rockwell coming along?
