"Revell-Monogram Kit of F4U-4....Not bad."
davezz4 (Schaumburg, IL)
I bought this to hang from the ceiling. I built it without the moveable options. The kit itself is OK. Fit was about average for a Revell. The instructions were typical as well. I removed the wing tank mounts and made my own exhaust. I also used aftermarket decals to represent VF-17 from the USS Bunker Hill. Very happy with the end results. If you build it out of the box, It is just an average kit. With a little time and attention it can be made to look pretty good. I would recommend this kit since the cost is low and it can be made to look very good.

"worth the trouble, great bargain!"
first i want to say how much i love the results of this build. but phew, what a delicate, tedious,sometimes frustrating build it was! plan on re-doing the wing hinge pivot points a couple times to make them fold. even though there are positive locating pins to position them inside the wing halves, they locate them in the wrong spot, and i resorted to prying the wing halves apart and moving them a couple times. also quite a bit of filing and shaping was necessary to allow the folding section to clear the center section adequately to fold without binding. the retractable landing gear required a lot of test fitting to decide which direction to assemble the various parts correctly. i don't have the stomach to try and retract them, for fear of breaking them off, but i think they are put together right, and they look great. that pretty much sums up this kit: when it's done, it looks great! but what a time putting it together. i'm very proud of the results. i would recommend this kit to rather experienced modelers, because it actually is challenging to build, and would(and probably has) frustrate inexperienced builders without considerable patience. overall, though, an inexpensive, convincing model of a great piece of aviation history, and a nice addition to my collection of 1/48 scale warbirds. recommend only to experienced builders.

"Where to start"
I am a fan of the corsair and the Black Sheep Squadron but this model kit let me down a bit the fuselage was great it look nice not much detail but enough for a Beginner modeler, but I would not recommend this to a beginner modeler for quite a few reasons 1. the instruction were alright but were not clear on some parts of the model as the wings which is another pain with this model I feel the wings were not thought out for this model they seem sloppy and a pain together I barely got them together my self (Lots of Glue was used) I tip my hat to anyone who got them on without a problem if you love corsairs I would stay away from this model but if you like a challenge give it a go

"Good Possibilities"
I've read many reviews that bash this model and especially the outer wings. I agree with most of them, especially if you are looking to build this one in a weekend. My approach is a much longer timeframe, I spend the time to get the best results a kit can deliver. This one is one of those kits. Yes you need to sand, fill, trim, fit and spend some time getting things lined up and working. But the end result can be a beautiful bird. Not quite the detail of today's model kits but I do get a lot of positive feedback on this one in my collection. Let's face it, the gull wings make this one instantly recognizable and if you have patience, it can be a very good model, especially for the money. I would recommend building this one if you are a patient builder. A true American classic fighter.
