Description

Holding the distinction of having the longest production run of any U.S. piston-engine fighter (1942-1953), the F4U Corsair primarily saw service during World War II and the Korean War. Though it was built to be a carrier-based aircraft, it immediately had difficult landing. After the kinks were worked out, however, it quickly became the most capable fighter-bomber of the entire war. More than 12,000 units were produced, and the aircraft was not officially retired until 1979.

This 1/72 scale model — a replica of "White 18," an F4U-4 Corsair flown during the Korean War with the VMF-323 "Death Rattlers" stationed on the USS Badoeng Strait — features that aircraft's signature snake nose art, engraved panel lines, a free-spinning propeller, a detailed radial engine, a signature gull-wing design, a glazed canopy, a well-equipped cockpit, eight high-velocity wing-mounted rockets, two fuselage-mounted tanks, fixed landing gear, authentic markings, and a mid-flight display stand. Measures approximately 5½" long with a 6¼" wingspan.
