Newest Member of Tamiya's 1/72 Scale Corsair Lineup
Featuring an elegant inverted gull wing design and powered by a massive 2000hp engine, the rugged Corsair served on the front lines with distinction during both World War II and the Korean War. Following the initial production F4U-1 variant, the F4U-1A made its debut in the summer of 1943. Taking lessons learned from the battlefield, improvements such as a bubble canopy and ability to carry heavy ordinance loads were incorporated to provide the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps with a formidable fighter.
