"Interesting kit with operating features but need a lot of work to make it look good. You need lots of patience for this one."
wyee (Virginia)
My kit sat in my closet for decades before I decided to build it. It looked good but requires a lot of patience and inventiveness. I used this kit as a test bed to experiment and gain experience with unfamiliar techniques. I liked kits that have operating features and this one have folding wings and retractable landing gears/doors. This was a plus but also a minus. On the minus die, the operating features required precise fits and robust mechanics. Unfortunately this kit had very poor fit in a number of places. The wings don't fit well and the hinges could be easily broken. The gear mechanics worked well but the doors were extremely poor fit and looked horrible when closed. The wind screen and canopy pieces were too small for the frame and required fabricating new ones. Overall, the pluses were price/value and operating features and the negatives were the poor fits and awkward folding wings.

"Corsair 1/48 scale F4U"
ehsilly
This F4U Corsair was pretty easy; parts fit together well although there is some flange trimming needed. Plastic is strong and not flimsy. Directions are clear except for decal placement, confusion as to what number go on which plane so be aware. Only other problem is the wings; I glued them on, forget the up and down hinging. Model is real nice when completed. Fits right in with my other prop fighters.

 
"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.

 
"Revell 1/48 scale F4U4 Cosair"
skippykeesler (Edwardsville ILL)
This kit has been around for quite awhile,but it remains one of my favorite Corsair kits.It goes tighter fairly well and has decent detail.I especially like the price. With a little work and some scratch building skills it produces a fine looking model,at half the price of other corsair kits.The decal sheet is good and go on well.I would recommend this kit,as for the wing attach issues I ethier bulid mine with extended wings or folded,I do not try to make them operational as I have never been able to get them to stay on they always fall off.If I build it with wings folded I use plastic card and make the ribs where the wings fold,sealing the open areas.All in all I think this kit produces a good looking model,ans would recommend it to any experienced modeler.
