Description Extended Information
 
Hobby Master HA8212A USMC Chance-Vought F4U-1D Corsair Fighter - Lt. Dean Caswell, VMF-221, USS Bunker Hill (CV-17), 1945 (1:48 Scale) "Why should we have a navy at all? There are no enemies for it to fight except apparently the Army Air Force."
- General Carl Spaatz, Commander of the US 8th Army Air Force, after WWII

Its gull-wing shape made it instantly recognizable. Its characteristic sound while in an attack dive led the Japanese to call it "The Whistling Death." Combined with its high speed, agility and toughness, the Vought F4U Corsair was one of the finest fighters ever built. Originally thought to be too powerful to fly from a carrier, the Corsair weaved a path of destruction in battle after battle during WWII, totally outclassing the much-feared Zero. The last of the great piston-engine fighters, the Corsair went on to become an important component of the US naval air power during the Korean War. Even while it was being replaced by jet aircraft, pilots flying this tough warbird were credited with downing a few MiG-15 jet fighters.

Pictured here is a 1:48 scale replica of a USMC Chance-Vought F4U-1D Corsair Fighter that was piloted by Lt. Dean Caswell, who was attached to VMF-221, then embarked upon the USS Bunker Hill (CV-17), during 1945. Pre-order! Ship Date: October 2014.
