"f4u corsair"
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.

"Good but flimsy wings"
This is a great looking model with decals that really look good, was fun putting it together for the most part, I had to glue the landing gear in place as I couldn't for the life of me get them to go together the way the manual specified. The wings folding to simulate its carrier based role is a great idea, unfortunately they aren't held together very well, it feels like they could use another mechanism to help the wings fold without them feeling like they will pull apart. I'd recommend this to someone with a reasonable amount of experience.

"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

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.
