Recommended Posts

The F4U Corsair was first deployed in 1943.  Because of the long nose, which made forward visibility for carrier landings a problem, Corsairs were given to the US Marine Corps.  The Marines did a pretty good job with the Corsair, getting an 11 to 1 kill ratio.  Corsairs were used as a ground attack and air support aircraft and continued like this into Korea. 

HobbyFan is a Taiwanese company which produces several lines of models.  AFV Club has armor in 1/35 scale, but also 1/350 and 1/700 ships and aircraft in 1/32, 1/48, 1/72 and 1/144.
