"Where to start"
TheYoungModeler
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

"Not a bad kit"
polockman (Lagro, IN)
This is an average kit. The instructions are pretty straight forward and the parts are designed well enough to give a good fitl. Like in several other reviews, I too had issues with attaching the folding wing tips - but I think I found what the issue is. In step 5 of the Instructions, they show part #'s 20 and 18 being attached upside down. I think if you put the offset on those 2 parts facing down instead of up; the wing tips will fit on nicely. Unfortunately, I had glued them on already as shown, so I was unable to check my theory. If you purchase this kit, tape those pieces on like I suggested first and see if the wing tips will match up then.

 
"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.

 
"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.
