Guillow F4U-4 Corsair
The Guillow F4U-4 Corsair!
Nicknamed the Sweetheart of Okinawa by the U.S. Marines and Whistling Death by the Japanese, the Corsair performed effectively in two wars - the Pacific theater in World War 2, and Korea in the early 1950s.
- Wing Span: 30-3/4"
- 1/16 Scale
The first production Corsair flew on June 25, 1942 at a time when the Japanese offensive seemed irresistible. It was not until late that year, with the delivery of the first Corsair squadrons into the hands of the US Marines on Guadalcanal and the Solomon Islands, that the tide of air combat was permanently turned in favor of the Allied Forces. To the British Navy in the early 1944 goes credit for introducing the Corsair to carrier service. Nine months later, the US Navy cleared the way for the Corsair to become the mainstay of its mighty carrier fleet.
