USN WWII Vought F4U-1A Corsair Fighter model kit 1/32Revell Germany
Powered by a 2,000 hp engine and a massive 13' 4" (4 m) propeller, the F4U-1 Corsair was the fastest single-engine fighter of its era. This incredible speed was matched by supreme maneuverability and a total of six .50 caliber machine guns. All combined created a fighter with which the US Navy racked up a 11 to 1 kill ratio during WWII. Long after the war ended, the navy kept producing with 12,571 produced from 1942-1953.
