This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The revolutionary F4U Corsair was originally designed in 1938 in response to a US Navy request for a high speed carrier-based fighter. US Navy carrier trails of the plane were disappointing, however, and the plane was relegated to land-based role. It performed admirably from the ground and saw extensive use during the latter stages of WWII and later during the Korean War in service with both the Navy and the Marines.
The Corsair, which easily outperformed every other American fighter or its time, was armed with six 12.7mm wing-mounted machine guns and with its 2000-Hp Pratt & Whitney radial piston engine, was capable of 417mph.
