The Corsair was regarded as one of the most formidable American Fighters of the second world war, racking up a kill ratio over the Japanese.
Early versions of the Corsair had some teething issues with carrier landings, though later versions were well sorted. In addition to being a fighter, it was deployed also in ground attack roles and even night fighter duties with the aid of added radar equipment.

However its difficult carrier landing performance rendered the Corsair unsuitable for Navy use until the carrier landing issues were overcome when used by the British Fleet Air Arm. The Corsair thus came to and retained prominence in its area of greatest deployment: land based use by the U. The role of the dominant U. The Corsair served to a lesser degree in the U.
As well as the U. Navy counted an kill ratio with the F4U Corsair. After the carrier landing issues had been tackled it quickly became the most capable carrier-based fighter-bomber of World War II. The Corsair served almost exclusively as a fighter-bomber throughout the Korean War and during the French colonial wars in Indochina and Algeria.

The designation F4U-1A does not appear in lists of Corsair Bureau Numbers and was not officially used, being applied post-war to differentiate mid-to-late production F4U-1s from the early production variant. Mid-to-late production Corsairs incorporated a new, taller and wider clear-view canopy with only two frames, along with a simplified clear view windscreen; the new canopy design meant that the Plexiglas rear-view windows could be omitted. In addition to these changes the clear view panels under the cockpit were also omitted.
F4U-1s supplied to the USMC lacked arrester hooks and had a pneumatic tail wheel, instead of the smaller diameter solid rubber type used for carrier operations. There are some small fiddly parts and some previous modelling experience would help you Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Daniel24 from Ace plane.https://ropannynelfarm.tk
ESM F4U Corsair Color F 74" Wingspan Model ARF
Recently got back into model planes. Would recommend this cool model to anyone.
Rated 4 out of 5 by trog from great value Goes together very nicely, some detail is missing but this is obviously an older tooling kit. My 1st attempt at scratch building on wheel wells! Kit has the option to build wings folded but both "hinges" broke quite early in the build. For the price this is a great kit, I added a couple of aftermarket detail bits and its coming together really nicely! Rated 5 out of 5 by Colin from tricky build a lovely plane when finished, folding wings a bit tricky but worth the time Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by pete from exactly what i was looking for I have made this model of the f4u corsair before but it wasn't the revel kit.
