"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.

"Again, with the folded wings!"
This is my 3rd revell carrier based plane (although the Corsair saw most action from land bases in WWII) that is supposed to have its wings fold up, but, it just wont hold! (the other two were revell's hellcat and avenger) So, I had to glue them AFTER going through all of the trouble of following the directions for fold up wings! Anyway, I didnt use the full complement of this kit's powerplant because i wanted to make it a WWII Corsair, and this kit is for a Korean war Corsair. I had extra MARINE decals from another kit that I used, and it looks great! Just, still frustrated by the wing issues! I dont know, maybe Tamiya or Hasegawa do it better?? Nonetheless, its still a very good kit and looks great in my ever enlarging pacific squadron!

Very cool, good paint job but one extremely major flaw... Folding wings do not stay together. I have never had so much trouble with a model and I have been modeling for 7 years. I must have tried to glue those wings on 20 times only to have them fall off. I commend anyone who successfully attached those darn wings.

"corsair model"
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
