"Ok detail, ok fit, TONS of flash"
Jim M. (Charlotte, NC)
If you don't mind endless hours of scraping and filing, this kit is surely for you. There was SO much flash on everything I almost stopped halfway through and tossed the whole thing in the trash. The parts fitment even after careful trimming of parts is okay at best. The wings are supposed to be able to fold up or lay down with this strange hinge mechanism they cooked up, but good luck ever getting it to line up right when it's done. There's so much wing weight hanging on such a small hinge that it'll never quite sit right. Also, if you want the wings to be even when they fold up, you're on your own. The parts for this mechanism don't line up well at all and need to be trimmed here and there until they fit. If you plan on having moving wings, make sure you have plenty of medium C/A glue and a bottle of accelerator handy! Unfortunately, the cons far outweigh the pros on this one. The raised panel lines and insane number of rivets combined with all the flash and the horrible wing setup make this one a no-go for me. The only good thing I can say about this kit is that the cockpit has more detail than a typical Revell kit.

"Vought F4U-1D Corsair"
skippykeesler (Wood River Ill)
This is a re-issues of Revell's 1/32 scale Corsair. It offers a nicely detailed engine. Cockpit detail is somewhat lacking, but there are aftermarket photo-etch cockpit detail sets that will vastly improve the appearance of the cockpit. Vereldin offeres an excellent resin replacement cockpit. The wheel well detail is sparse,but can be recetifed with a little scratch building.There is little flash on the sprues, and overall fit is good. The kit can be displayed with the wings folded or extended. If you choose to display them folded, you will have to scratch build the wing fold area, hyd. lines control linkages etc. I plan on replacing my kits struts and wheels with aftermarket ones, as the kit ones a somewhat lacking in detail, but is nothing which is impossible to improve, either by scratch building additional details on the kit gear or replacing them with aftermarket metal gear.Overall this is a nice kit, especially the price. I would recommend this kit.

 
"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

 
"Good model, tricky assembly of wings"
kandj172
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.
