F4U-1D Corsair

by Damian Murphy


Chance-Vought F4U-1D Corsair


Trumpeter's 1/32 scale F4U-1D Corsair is available online from Squadron




This is the great 1/32 scale F4U-1D Corsair kit modified with Black Box’s Cockpit update kit.

I also modified the cowling flaps the kit cowling flaps which were incorrect as supplied. I made new ones with the correct gap angle. Also I added engine wiring and arming wires to the bombs. The flap connecting rods in the wing folds were replaced.



My Corsair was painted with Model Masters Acrylic paints and received a black enamel wash.
