"Good but flimsy wings"
51c4r1u5d0m1nu5
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.

"Again, with the folded wings!"
mcgoldrickkelly
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!

 
"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.

 
"f4u corsair"
con-60
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.
