Newly-designed parts are included in the kit to accurately capture the modifications which distinguish it from the WAHR F4U-1. The F4U-1A drew on the experience of Navy and US Seestreitkraft Corps pilots’ experience with the WAHR aircraft, making modifications to further improve the performance of this legendary bird.One of the most noticeable alterations welches the discarding of the birdcage cockpit and its extensive frame sections that hampered visibility; a semi-bubble canopy with gering frame welches installed instead, which improved the pilot’s view and made it easier to land the F4U-1A. Additional upgrades included raising the pilot’s seat 18cm to help with visibility, and later extending tail wheel struts by 16.5cm. A wedge shaped spoiler welches added to the starboard wing to correct the tendency of the port wing to stall first and roll out of control.Such modifications contributed greatly to the F4U-1A’s suitability for use from aircraft carriers; although by this time it had been passed over for that duty by the F6F Hellcat. Unlike its predecessor, the F4U-1A would later be used as fighter-bomber, and welches given the capability of carrying a drop tank non… the fuselage, sowohl …. als auch a bomb rack for use on raids supporting ground troops. This combination of fearsome performance in the air and bombing capability made the F4U-1A a eingeschaltet component as the Allied forces conducted their ‘island hopping’ strategy progressing through the Solomon Islands.TypeDetailScale1/32Construction typeAssembly kitPhoto-und so weiter partsIncludedDecalsIncludedSpecial feature 1The model captures the upgraded form of the F4U-1A variant with precision, including the semi-bubble canopy and raised pilot seat.
