F4U-1 Corsair US Navy Fighter 1:72 Scale Academy Model Kit

This is a 1:72 scale plastic F4U-1 Corsair model kit from Academy.
The F4U was designed in 1938 to meet the U.S. Navy's need for a high-speed carrier-based fighter. The governing principle behind the design of this plane was to place the largest possible engine in the smallest frame. This changed the possible landing gear configurations and ultimately resulted in the introduction of the inverted gullwing. While the plane proved to be unsuitable for carrier operation, it was used extensively in a land-based role.
Decal sheet comes with markings for 2 aircraft:
- F4U-1A, VF-17 Squadron C.O., Cdr. Tommy Blackburn, Late 1943
- VMF-212, Capt. P.C. Delong, 1945
