About This Content
Probably the most recognised US Navy aircraft of WWII, due to its distinctive folding cranked-wing design, this Vought F4U Corsair has been built over the most accurate plans available, including original factory plans and drawings. This highly detailed model features a fully functioning virtual cockpit, intricate cowl flap mechanisms, oil cooler and intercooler doors, wing folding mechanics, tail hook, animated bomb and drop tank release and more.
An additional external model depicts the F4U-1B clipped-wing variant of the Corsair which was flown by the Royal Navy, who clipped the wings for easier storage in its cramped hangar decks and for better stall behaviour.
