VOUGHT F4U-1A CORSAIR

DESCRIPTION


  • With its 2,000hp engine and distinctive inverted gull wings, the F4U Corsair was an excellent fighter which served on the frontlines from WWII to the Korean War. This kit depicts the F4U-1A variant which first entered service in the summer of 1943 and was the mount of many famous U.S. Navy and Marine Corps aces. Characteristic features such as the taller seat, longer tailwheel, and improved canopy have all been accurately reproduced, and the wings may even be assembled in folded position. Parts for 1,000lb bombs, drop tanks, and two pilot figures, as well as two marking options are included.

 

  • Here's the version of the Corsair flown by Pappy Boyington and several other "bent-wing bird" aces. Tamiya's new F4U-1A kit is basically a cross between their two earlier issues, including the canopy of the latter, and propeller of the former, plus the other necessary detail changes, including two figures (one seated, one standing on the wing). Markings are included for VMF-111's famous #122 (see box art) and "Big Hog" of VF-17. Flaps are fixed down, canopy can be open or closed. Easily the finest Corsair kit that's ever been produced.
