A finely engineered kit for the expert to sink their teeth into. Options galore for aircraft markings and configurations (folded or extended wings etc). Well supported by multiple online forums if you wish to pimp your model and take it to the next level.

Description

Tamiya 1/32: Vought F4U-1A Corsair Bubble Canopy – Model Kit

This is a highly detailed model recreating the F4U-1A variant of the highly popular Corsair model. Newly-designed parts are included in the kit to accurately capture the modifications which distinguish it from the original F4U-1. The F4U-1A drew on the experience of Navy and US Marine Corps pilots' experience with the original aircraft, making modifications to further improve the performance of this legendary bird.

Features:

  • The model captures the upgraded form of the F4U-1A variant with precision, including the semi-bubble canopy and raised pilot seat. This required newly-designed cockpit interior parts. Details such as new instrumentation panel and console designs are also depicted.
  • Clear engine cowling parts are included. (Note: Only for the US market)
  • Modelers can choose whether to assemble the model with its distinctive inverted gull wings extended or folded away.
  • Flaps and elevators can also be depicted in open or closed positions.
  • Starboard wing spoiler is recreated.
  • Includes 2 types of tail landing gear wheel to enable depiction of elongated strut.
  • Comes with parts depicting drop tank and 500lb bomb.
  • 2 figures depict pilot in seated or standing position.
  • The complex Pratt & Whitney R-2800 engine is faithfully depicted in all its glory, including early variant distributor. Removable 2-piece engine cowl allows the engine to be viewed.
  • Includes 3 sets of markings and painting guide. Recreate U.S. Navy or Marine Corps unit aircraft.
