      Out of stock
     
  Excellent model from the WW11 Warbirds series 2 of Vought Corsair Mk 1V of 1841 Sqn Fleet Air Arm, as flown by Lt Robert Hampton "Hammy" Gray against the Japanese. These excellent value models come with a display stand to show the aircraft "in flight". The perfect low-budget way to start off your Aviation Archive collection! Already getting harder to find.

Designed to meet a US Navy requirement for a single-seat carrier based fighter, the F4U was first flown on May 29th, 1940. This versatile aircraft saw service with both the Navy and Marine Corps in WW II and in the Korean War. During its lifetime, the Corsair underwent numerous improvements such as a lengthened fuselage, a high visibility bubble-top canopy and folding inverted gull wings that provided clearance for a large propeller. Its performance advantage, 400 mph capability, the ability to withstand punishment and six .50 Browning machine guns made the F4U a devastating weapon against aircraft, ground targets and ships.

The solid metal wing features oil cooler vents, machine gun ports on the leading edge and a pair of removable external fuel tanks mounted below. The all-metal horizontal stabilizers and rudder feature simulated fabric stretched control surfaces. The landing gear is robust in design and installs quickly and easily for ground display.
