"f4u corsair"
con-60
I loved putting this model together, it was realy fun because it was my first aircraft. The only thing that I found that was the only problem was that the joints connecting the wing are fragile and therefore it is best that the the wings remain in a stable position to prevent them from coming apart. But overall I loved this model and would rexommend it to anyone beginning to model planes.

"Pretty good for a Revel model"
cvanzant86
Pretty good model, looks great when painted dark sea blue. Pieces fit together with little effort for the most part. The only problem is the fold up wings. The pieces are too weak to properly support the wing so I just glued the wings into the down position. I think it looks better that way anyway. One great thing about this model is the landing gear. Many airplanes (especially Revel models) have landing gear that is weak or does not fit properly. This one has strong enough landing gear that is easily constructible and supports the plane well although I would advise gluing the rear landing gear into a set position.

 
"Awesome plane, good kit"
rockykeele (Tucson, AZ)
The Good: Reasonable price, fair amount of detail, good decals. The Bad: Moderate number of parts, flash on many parts, scale of pilot. For the price, this is a nice, simple kit, but don't expect the detail or number of parts you would get from a Hasegawa kit, for example. The kit does come with a center-line drop tank, two bombs and 10 under-wing 5 inch rockets. The pilot figure seems a bit too small for 1/48 scale. Overall, a fun kit with only a few minor issues.

 
"corsair model"
waynelyrice
you don't have to be very skilled to make this model look exteremely good. it is a fun and detailed model I had a blast building it .I used for a ww2 fighter setup I am trying to do. The decals were easy to aplly because of there large size and shape if you want a detailed and skill building project this is it.I would have liked to know some more things like rockets come with the model before I bought it weather than that it was a great model
