The Corsair, single place Navy fighter, was the last propeller-driven
fighter made in the U.S. Unique in appearance with its inverted
gull wing shape, it was designed for carrier operation but was
flown from Pacific airstrips by Marine Corps pilots and enjoyed
a distinguished postwar career in Korea.Model Features: Corsair
F4U-4.-Rotating propeller, bay doors open and close, retractable
landing gear, movable tail hook.-Meticulously recreated with a
detailed cockpit with separate pilot figure.-Waterslide decals

All new mold for 2013!
F4U-1C F4U-1D Corsair VF-17 Jolly Rogers
Vought F4U 1/2 Bird Cage Corsair
Detailed scale assembly model kit of the Chance Vought F4U Corsair,
a single-seat carrier and land based fighter of the United States
NAVY and Marine Corps.The Corsair was a formidable fighter aircraft
as it was both fast and maneuverable, thanks in large to its Pratt
& Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp radial (capable of speeds up
to 400mph) and advanced aerodynamics. The F4U was universally
feared by Japanese pilots, and by the end of World War II, the
Corsair had accumulated an impressive 11:1 kill ratio in air-to-air
engagements. This scale model kit depicts the F4U-1, the first
production version of the Corsair with "bird cage" canopy,
and the kit features: Detailed cockpit and instrument panels.
Separate flaps can be optionally positioned in up or down position.
Parts to construct optional folded wings. Detailed undercarriage.
Detailed engine with optional open or closed flaps. Optional parts
to construct F4U-2 night-fighter version. 1 pilot figure. Decals
with 4 sets of markings.
Corsair with Moto-Tug
This kit is perfect for designing the ultimate U.S. Navy Scene
Diorama. Aircraft Tug or Moto-Tug tractors, as they were nicknamed,
were manufactured by Ford. The Ferguson Company modified these
vehicles for ease of application in the U.S. Navy by lowering
clearance, and reducing wheel diameter to make it more compact.
A protective panel was also added. The double-tire version of
this vehicle was the BNO-40, the single-tire version was the BNO-25.
Tow bars from Moto Tugs would attach to the rear landing gear
or main landing gear struts. These vehicles were active in towing
U.S. Naval planes to runways and hangers. The kit will feature
all new parts for recreation of rockets on outer section of wing,
perfect for displaying in wing-folded position. In addition to
the standing pilot figure of the previous kit, a pilot figure
to be assembled leaning out of the cockpit (checking towing) will
be included. This kit reproduces the double-wheel version of the
Moto-Tug with minimal parts for ease of assembly. Currently, decals
for the replication of three different planes are planned to be
included in this kit. Driver figure as well as two types of tow
bars (main landing gear strut type and rear landing gear strut
type) for Moto-Tug will also be included.

F4U Corsair (FAA) Military Aircraft
The very successful Royal Navy Corsairs all had 41cm clipped from
their wing-tips which enabled below-deck storage on the Royal
Navy carriers which were smaller than the American carriers for
which the Corsair was originally designed.
