Vought F4U-1A Corsair in the superb markings of "Daphne C" of the VMF-213, as flown by ace pilot James N Cupp. 1/72 scale. Displays superbly, has to be seen to be appreciated and now hard to find. Boxes may have the odd light scuff, crease or score line but nothing that detracts.

Designed to meet a US Navy requirement for a single-seat carrier based fighter, the F4U was first flown on May 29th, 1940. This versatile aircraft saw service with both the Navy and Marine Corps in WW II and in the Korean War. During its lifetime, the Corsair underwent numerous improvements such as a lengthened fuselage, a high visibility bubble-top canopy and folding inverted gull wings that provided clearance for a large propeller. Its performance advantage, 400 mph capability, the ability to withstand punishment and six .50 Browning machine guns made the F4U a devastating weapon against aircraft, ground targets and ships.
