Vought F4U-1A Corsair Fighter Aircraft

In June 1942, the F4U-1 production models made their maiden flight. However, due to their restricted forward field of view, and because of a propeller wash effect caused them to stall left wing first during low speed landings, they first were used as land based fighters. Succeeding the F4U-1 in the summer of 1943 was the F4U-1A, which was equipped with an extended rear wheel landing gear shaft, a slightly modified glazed canopy, and a small triangular strip of metal bolted to the right leading edge of the wing to equalize the stall and avoid the roll to the left at touch-down.

"Corsair F4U-1a"
ek19333
I generally enjoyed making this kit. As a novice builder, I liked the straight forward instructions and assembly involved. There were some rough spots with the wings not comfortably fitting in regards to the fuselage, but it was overcome with a dabbling in application of putty and some sanding. After making a couple of Japanese planes, I was struck at just how much the Corsair dwarfed the former. This kit also includes a staggering amount of decals for all three different versions you have the option of making.

"Corsair excellence"
Jeff
Another great model for the price. Tamiya rarely fails at putting forth a good product and this version of the Corsair is no exception. The fit was excellent going together with no problem and a minimum amount of putty being used. The wing joints need some extra care and attention to get them to set properly but that was the biggest issue I had. As always, a good look at the instruction sheet before beginning will allow the builder to rejig the assembly order in order to avoid finishing issues. A pretty good selection of stuff is available to be hung underneath and the decal sheet is excellent. Cheers, Jeff

 
"Great model kit"
Matthew M.
This is a perfect addition to all the WWII planes used in the Pacific theater it went together real well as all Tamiya brand they are builder friendly so no need for hand fitting or grinding and filing down like Revell yeah been there done that but overall nice detail you can't ever go wrong with Tamiya .

 
"Fantastic F4U-1D kit"
jimmbbo
On opening the kit, the first impression is of the fine details, scribed panel lines and overall quality that has become Tamiya's hallmark. The overall parts count is higher than ancient Monogram F4U of the '70s, due to the great amount of detail Tamiya has provided. What a difference 40 years makes! Following the well-written instructions results in an easily assembled and very detailed model. The parts fit is excellent, and no putty was required. If the folded wing version is desired, the outer wing panels should be left off till final assembly, as with the outer panels glued onto the folding mechanism, the wing fold spar that connects the outer panels to the inner panels would be easy to break. The finished model is simply a gem, and sets the standard for 1/48 Corsair models.
