High Planes Chance Vought F4U-5 Corsair Decals & Accessories Plus Pack 1:72
The Chance Vought F4U-5 Corsair was an evolution in the successful wartime Corsair family. It was fitted with the more powerful Pratt & Whitney R-2800-32W engine, redesigned cowl, cockpit and control surfaces and a powerful four 20mm cannon armament. The F4U-5 was fitted with AN/APS-6 or AN/APS-19 airborne intercept radar on the outer starboard wing.
The F4U-5N entered service with the US Marines too late for WWII but served in Korea. The cold conditions led to the development of the F4U-5NL with de-icing boots on the leading surfaces. Production continued until 1951 and they were exported to Argentina and Honduras. The Argentinian aircraft flew from the ‘Independencia’ [ex HMS & HMCS Warrior] until1965 while the Honduran examples stayed in service long enough to fly in the 1969 “Soccer War” with El Salvador.
This High Planes detail set includes vac form canopy, resin & white metal detail parts for the F4U-5 Corsair, including a new propellor, landing gear, bomb braces and canon.
