Description: Rubber-powered balsa wood kit that really flies! Wingspan 46cm KIT CONTENTS: Four balsa sheets with precise laser cut parts and strip wood. PVA glue for building the wooden frames. One 150mm diameter plastic propeller. One pre-bent motor hook and shaft. Three low friction plastic nose bushings - one for the propeller and two for the undercarriage wheels. One vacuum formed canopy. Piano wire for the main undercarriage and tail wheel legs. One motor peg (cocktail stick or toothpick). Rubber motor strip. Tissue to cover the model. Parts reference sheet (W), full size summary plan sheet (X), scheme diagram sheet (Y) and scheme markings (Z) printed on lightweight paper. YOUR KIT: This kit is designed for you to build a traditionally constructed, rubber powered, free flight model of a Corsair operated by VMF-216, a fighter squadron of the U.S. Marines Corps - nicknamed the 'Bulldogs". Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of 'stick and tissue', that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin. The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing. Power is provided by rubber strip motor that is wound up before flight. Free flight means just that - once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or 'trimmed'. This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding. Typically for a small model and in the spirit of the traditional kits, profiles are simplified and adjusted from the original and a relatively large propeller is used. This is done so that the model is light and stable enough to fly on its own, is simple in construction and can work with the rubber motor. These adjustments have been done with care and sensitivity so that the shape and spirit of the original aircraft is preserved as much as possible. Also in the spirit of the traditional kits, additional items required to build the model are things that can be found in the kitchen drawer or are easily available on the high street. The Deluxe Materials Balsa Kit Glue Deal (sold separately) Contains: Super Phatic Glue 50ml: Highly penetrating yellow aliphatic glue with wicking action. Dries to 50% of its weight so ideal for lightweight models. Tissue Paste 50ml: A specially developed tissue paste used for sticking tissue paper to model aircraft. Eze Dope 250ml: Traditional modellers tissue shrinking dope. A safe, non-toxic alternative to the traditional flammable dope liquid. Its safe non-flammable formula has little odour and brushes are water-washable. (Please note: this deal includes only the glues mentioned. The Balsa Kit must be purchased separately.).

    Brand: Guillows

     

    Description: Guillow's Giant Scale Balsa Wood Vought F4U-4 Corsair Flying Model kit Wingspan: 768mm Scale: 1:16 To the British Navy in the early 1944 goes credit for introducing the Corsair to carrier service. Nicknamed the 'Sweetheart of Okinawa" by the U.S. Marines and 'Whistling Death" by the Japanese, the Corsair performed effectively in two years- the Pacific conflict of World War 2 and the Korean engagement of the early 1950's. 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 U.S. Marines on Guadalcanal and the Solomon Islands, that the tide of air combat was permanently turned in favour of the Allied Forces. Kit Contains: A complete set of beautiful decals Scale WW2 plastic wheels Light plastic nose cowl Propeller hub and spinner Exhaust ports Wing air scoops Two bombs with pylons - one able to be dropped Landing gear struts Tail wheel structure and dowels for wing rockets Clear bubble canopy Two colour cockpit interior layout Large wide blade wood prop 6 feet of rubber band thread Light silkspan Cleanly die-cut balsa parts Clay for balancing model Reinforced wire gear plus generous quantities of strip stock For U-Control installation, this kit contains a plywood firewall, tip guide, bellcrank base and control line handle, also push rod wire, bellcrank, elevator horn, hinge material, nylon flying line and all balsa tail surfaces.

  • Tamiya 1/32 Scale Vought F4U-1 Corsair Birdcage US Marine Corp Model Kit

    Price: £109.99

    Brand: Tamiya

     

    Description: Tamiya Vought F4U-1 Corsair Birdcage US Marine Corp 1:32 Scale The Corsair was originally developed by the American company Vought in response to a proposal in February 1938 for a carrier fighter aircraft by the U.S. Navy. Designed to surpass even land-based fighters, it featured a 2,000hp engine and massive 4-metre propeller and - most memorably - a unique inverted gull wing. This first version of the Corsair (which means pirate) was given the nickname birdcage due to the large frame sections used in the canopy structure. Thrown into front line action from February 1943 onwards, the aircraft took part in the U.S. military's counter-offensive which was based in the Solomon Islands; it was mainly used by the U.S. Marine Corps and used an advantage in speed and armor over the Japanese Zero fighter to prove a valuable weapon in the arsenal of the U.S. military. About this model: Plastic model assembly kit of the F4U-1 Corsair. 1:32 scale. Fuselage length: 318mm, Wingspan: 390mm. Features faithful recreations of fuselage, unique inverted gull wing and large propeller, and more. Inverted gull wing can be assembled in folded or extended position as the modeler chooses; details on the inside of the fold joint are also captured accurately. Choose between up or down elevators and flaps. Two-part engine cowls can be removed from the model, even after completion. Select retracted or deployed main landing gears and tail wheel. Includes two figures depicting the pilot, one seated and one standing. Comes with 3 sets of markings to depict U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps aircraft. The set includes a full-color, 12-page booklet detailing the history of the Corsair line of aircraft.

  • Trumpeter 1/32 Scale F4U-1D Corsair Model Kit

    Price: £49.49

    Brand: Trumpeter

     

    Description: Trumpeter 1/32 Scale F4U-1D Corsair Model Kit The revolutionary design of the F4U Corsair was created in 1938 in response to the request of the US Navy to design a high-speed fighter stationed on board aircraft carriers. Chance Vought took on the challenge, with the goal of fitting the most powerful of the available engines (i. e. the Pratt-Whitney Double Wasp engine) into the smallest possible airframe. The key was to place the clunky landing gear in the inverted, crooked wings that became the hallmark of the aircraft. The flight of the prototype took place on May 29, 1940, and the US Navy received its first serial Corsair on July 31, 1942. However, tests carried out by the US Navy on aircraft carriers revealed some flaws in the design, which meant that the first production series of the aircraft went to squadrons of the Marine Corps and operated from land bases. The first unit received by the F-4 was the VMF-124 at Gudalcanal. It quickly turned out that the new machine definitely surpasses all enemy machines and, in several respects, also the F-6 Hellcat. At the same time, however, it was very difficult to pilot and required great attention when landing. Interestingly, only up to 20% of Corsair missions took off from the decks of aircraft carriers, and throughout almost the entire war they remained primarily a machine of the Marine Corps. After the end of World War II, the F-4 Corsair remained in the line and took part in the Korean War (1950-1953). Paints and glue are required to complete this model kit. Not included. Available separately. Deluxe Materials Plastic Magic Cement 40ml (AD83): Plastic Magic Cement is a thin, liquid plastic cement with a 10-15 sec adjustment time & non-clog action. It is non-toxic, non-flammable, has minimal odour and almost zero emissions when compared to competitors.
