"The Bent-Wing Bird"
jimwoodward1943 (Broken Arrow, OK)
Not much flashing -parts fit well - instructions could use some improvement especially the build of the engine and the manifold in the rear - other than that it was a fun build. I glued the wings into the down and fixed position - too much hassle to try to have folding wings

"Inexpensive 1/32 Corsair"
parisfrisby (Prescott Valley, AZ)
You can't beat this kit for the price. The details are a little sparse especially in the wheel wells. The panel lines are raised, but still look good. The tires have no detail at all, just plain plastic circles. The hing system on the wings works pretty good but anything is better than the Revell 1/48 version. The engine detail is nice as well as the cockpit (instrument decals). You could get aftermarket parts but that would drive the price too high. Again for the price its almost a sin not to purchase it. Its a fun build

"Good model, tricky assembly of wings"
As the information says, the wings on this one can be folded up. The mounting for this is a tad difficult, so don't rush. WAIT for the glue to really bond and dry or you will be doing this over and over and over. Same for the landing gear. That said, this is a big model that paints easy and the rest comes together easily. You won't be disappointed if you put the time in on this one. I gave it a Good rating and not excellent because of the wing mounting system for the folding wings.

"Best bang for the buck, but requires work"
Revell initiated their famous 1/32 warbird series in the '70s, and they were state of the art for the day... While it cannot compete with Tamiya's fantastic $150 Corsair, Revell's F4U holds up well, especially when considering its bargain basement price (a modeler can build a squadron of Revell kits for one Tamiya ;) ). The details reflect its 1970 release date, the kit has a bit of flash, but the fit is good, the engine is remarkable, and the shape is right. WIth some modeling skills and additional aftermarket parts and detailing, a stunning model can be the result... Several modeling websites have completed Revell Corsairs that are truly works of the modeler's art. Recommended as a challenge for experienced modelers to work their magic, or as a first big scale kit for newer hobbyists on a budget.
