Vought F4U-1D Corsair
By skippykeesler July 7, 2015
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.

Best bang for the buck, but requires work
By jimmbbo February 22, 2016
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.

F-4U Corsair Birdcage
By ricmac50 August 14, 2015
I was impressed with the size of the model considering the price of the model, very reasonable for a 1:32 scale model. I did enjoy building and modifying the engine which I proceeded to make into a highly detailed engine. Few flashing parts but overall not bad and a few alignment issues but none that can't be resolved with a little work and patience. Model size is nice and makes for an easy assembly model. Overall model rates between a four and five star, so I'll ,go ahead and rate it a five.

Inexpensive 1/32 Corsair
By parisfrisby September 3, 2015
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
