New Tamiya Birdcage Airplane Model Kit - Whats in the Kit?

13 December 2013 by Rod Carruthers
The latest addition to our Aircraft models is this gorgeous Corsair by Tamiya. The F4U-1 Corsair was a truly unique aircraft, with a powerful 2,000hp engine and a massive 4 metre propeller, not to mention the highly characteristic inverted gull-wings. In October of 1940, it was the first American fighter to achieve a speed of 400mph (nearly 640kph). Initial production models of the aircraft featured a striking canopy called the "Birdcage". The aircraft took part in operations from February 1943, and with its powerful 12.7mm machine guns proved to be a formidable opponent for the Japanese Zero Fighters. In order to capture the aircraft as accurately as possible, Tamiya designers not only inspected, measured and examined the real aircraft at five different museums across North America, they were also given access to Northrop-Grumman's blueprints. The result is a highly detailed and precise 1/32 scale model of the F4U-1 Corsair . Limited edition clear cowl parts are included in the export version that we are selling. This allows for appreciation of the exquisite detail on the P&W engine Instantly-recognizable inverted gull-wing features excellent attention to detail. Main landing gears and tail wheel can be assembled in deployed or retracted positions. Clear...
