F4U Corsair

A giant-scale "Sweetheart."

F4U Corsair Giant Scale
Includes decals for markings shown. Pilot figure not included.

The F4U Corsair-or "Sweetheart of Okinawa"-remained in production from 1942 through 1952, longer than any other American fighter. For every one Corsair lost in Pacific combat, this agile warbird defeated eleven of the enemy. You'll enjoy equally winning performance from Top Flite's kit at the field-as well as easy giant-scale building, thanks to its Gold Edition advantages!

Corsair size relevance
  • Simplifies giant-scale assembly with CAD-engineered parts made of die-cut wood and heavy-duty ABS plastic.

  • Precisely interlocking construction produces a muscular scale airframe, complete with round fuselage and the distinctive, inverted gull-wing.

  • Fully balsa-sheeted exterior provides an ideal surface for scale finishing.

  • Performs well with glow engines including the SuperTigre® G-4500, and such gas power plants as the U.S. Engines 41 cc.

  • Many scale accessories available for outstanding realism.
