NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
   This is a 1/48 Chance-Vought F4U-1D Corsair Plastic Model Kit from Academy
                    Plastics.  It's for experienced modelers.

The Corsair was primarily used as an offensive fighter and ground attack aircraft. Initial versions had poor handling on aircraft carriers, so they served with the Marines off land-based airstrips. The huge propeller needed to absorb the power from the Pratt & Whitney R2800 engine, which led to the inverted gull wing design for acceptable propellor clearance. The F4U-1D featured a larger frameless canopy for improved visibility, but was otherwise similar to the initial production F4U-1.

FEATURES: Detailed 1/48th scale plastic kit for static display. 133 parts in light grey and clear with fine recessed panel lines. Cockpit detail: seat cockpit tub, control stick and instrument panel decal. Detailed Pratt & Whitney R-2800 engine with two styles of propeller and open or closed cowl flaps. External stores include underwing rockets with zero-length launch rails, 2 styles of drop tank, and bombs. Optional parts provided for raised or lowered flaps.

MARKING OPTIONS: Single decal sheet with markings for 2 aircraft: 1: a/c #86 Maj Greg "Pappy" Boyington, VMF-214, US Marine Corps. 2: a/c #110, VF-84, USS Bunker Hill, US Navy, 1945. Airframe Colors: 1: 3-tone Navy Blue/Medium Blue/White camouflage scheme. 2: Overall Gloss Sea Blue w/Yellow cowl ring. Detail Colors: Black, White, Yellow, Yellow Green, Green, Flesh, Medium Blue, Sky Grey, Deck Tan, Buff, Olive Green, Red Brown, Blue, Red, Yellow, Gunmetal, Chrome Silver.
