"Not bad for an old mould. Actually good!"
jclemente1980 (Coimbra, Portugal)
The thing about this airplane is that it was the precursor of the corsair II. But in therms of model, it looks better than its son. This was meant to be a fast interceptor, which would raise the wing to get lower landing speed on the aircraft carrier. And even if the flaps are not shown deployed, this feature, raising the wing, it is possible to do. With some extra weapons it looks like a killer! Nice to be on the F collection.

"almost perfict"
pamason (Entiat, WA)
This model have a great dectale for a model of the scale. The parts fit well and inst sheet is good and color chart is good there are decals for three planes two u.s. and one french. The only bad part is the fit of the sidwinders and the number of decals that must be placed went biulding the u.s. planes if you have the hasg air to ground kit thare is a chart for bombs that can be on the hardpoints. It is a model for the med to exp biulder.

 
"Nice Kit"
Remington1858 (Colorado)
the only issue i had was with the canopy not fitting well

 
"nice little model"
wildbill101048
this kit is accurate and had good fits. I built the marine version. research revealed that VMF 312 was headquartered at Beaufort MCAS in South Carolina. I assume the bombs were Mk 82's, the instructions do not designate. missiles are sidewinders I believe. ok cockpit, good fit on canopies. be sure and put the star decals on BEFORE mounting missiles. if you want the refueling boom extended, you will have to cut the decal. when finished it will have the distinctive crusader squat which adds a proper profile. would recommend to one and all.
