Tamiya 1/72 Vought F4U-1A Corsair
The Tamiya 1/72 Vought F4U-1A Corsair from our 1/72 scale aircraft model kits range accurately recreates the real-life US carrier-borne fighter aircraft flown during World War II. This plastic model kit requires paint and glue to complete.
Introduced into service in 1942, the Vought F4U-1 featured inverted gull wings and a massive 2,000hp engine spinning the largest propeller mounted on a fighter at the time. While the fighter's performance and toughness was quite impressive, deficiencies such as inadequate forward visibility, restricted all-round visibility due to the early frame-like canopy, and the tendency for the left and right wings to stall at different speeds led to various improvements being added throughout production, eventually resulting in the F4U-1A version. These improvements included a longer tailwheel leg for better forward visibility, a new canopy for better all-round visibility, and an almost unnoticeable 15cm Stall strip fixed to the leading edge of the right wing to ensure both wings would stall at the same speed.
