589308 Corgi   A-7E Corsair - VA-86 Sidewinders AJ400, US Navy 1978 £
      Out of stock
  Fantastic Century Wings model of the Vought A-7E Corsair of VA-86 "Sidewinders" AJ400, US Navy on the carrier USS Nimitz in 1978. Derived from the F-8 Crusader fighter and fondly nicknamed "SLUF" (meaning "Short Little Ugly Fella)the Corsair served faithfully with US Navy carrier borne attack squadrons for 3 decades. Limited Edition of 2000 pieces worldwide, of which only approx 200 have come to the UK. Highly detailed and accurate, the 1/72 scale Corsair features completed landing gear sub-assemblies that snap quickly into place, eliminating the need to attach individual gear doors and struts that are found on similar diecast models. They also feature realistic panel lines, antennas, access panels and surface details, pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals, opening canopies revealing detailed cockpit interiors, selected moveable control surfaces, optional extended/retracted landing gear, presentation stand to display the aircraft "in flight", detailed removeable pilot, and authentic interchangeable ordnance loads complete with placards. Sold out everywhere; we believe we are now the last retailer to have this model in stock. This is the most desirable of all the US Navy Corsairs with the multi-coloured diamonds on the fin.
