Model itself was straight forward in assembly. Painting seem to show colors that were not in the guide. Internet helped fillin the gaps

"Disappointing"
donmarlyn
This is one of the worst models I have ever tried to build. Many of the holes requiring opening were non existent. Unless you are an avid modeler, with tools to reengineer the final product, this model isn't worth the extra time.

 
"Good Kit"
Rhodesian Infantry (USA)
No flash, simple to build, clear instructions, detailed. Only thing preventing 5 stars is the fact I like to hang models from ceiling to appear as flying. This configuration was not possible without modification, which I did. The pilot it came with was meant to stand on the wing and flaps are down for air brake effect and it does not come with landing gear option for the up position. But for a ground model it is perfect and even has folding wings option.

 
"Great plane"
mlchodroff
I started to use Tamiya models over others , some months ago I build the USS New Jersey by Tamiya the parts and quality made a great experience and better model. This Corsair F4U-1D will be part of my many WW2 aircraft , opening the box and seeing the parts and trees you can see it’s made much better and reviews from other builders say this is the higher quality model . The shipping and time from Hobbylinc was faster then they said and the item was packed very well and perfect. Thank you for my first great experience with you.

Information

Designed around the new Pratt & Whitney 2,000HP radial engine and tuning the largest propeller ever attached to a fighter plane, the Vought F4U Corsair became a legend in its own time. The F4U-1 was the first production version of the Corsair. It had a inverted gull-wing and a framed canopy with a flat top.

However many problems were found soon. For example, the port wing stall often gave the Corsair unstable landing. And another problem was poor visibility because of its long nose and framed canopy. Therefore F4U-1A: the cockpit was raised about seven inches, the framed canopy was replaced with a semi-bubble design canopy, and the taller tail wheel strut was equipped; was introduced. F4U-1D with clear vision canopy on frameless was introduced later for more visibility. Also the F4U-1D had two pylons under the center wing section that could carry the bombs up to 1,000 pounds and the napalm. Furthermore 5 inch rockets could be carried under each wing.

Therefore in 1944, the F4U-1D was formally deployed as the first carrier based aircraft of Corsair series. Beginning by placing the F4U-1D as Marine squadrons VMF-124 and VMF-213 aboard the ESSEX on the way to the Philippines, the F4U-1D was used for attacking Japan as the first operation from U.S. Navy in 1945. About 3,700 amounts of F4U-1D were produced, then it held an established position from U.S. Navy because of its ability and reliance.
