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.
