Vought Brewster Corsair F4U-4 Marines Model Details
The U.S. Navys Corsair flew its first combat mission of World War II on February 13, 1943, from a land base on Guadalcanal. Although it was expressly designed for shipboard operations, the F4U Corsair, built by Chance Vought, spent most of its wartime career confined to land bases. Not until the end of 1944 did the F4U make its first operational sorties from American carriers in the Pacific theater. Pilots who flew the Corsair claimed it to be the best single-seat fighter of the Second World War. Corsairs also enjoyed a distinguished postwar career in Korea. They carried more of a payload than jet and could stay longer on station. During the first ten months of the Korean fighting, Corsairs were used for 90% of all ground-support missions by Navy and Marine pilots.
On one occasion over Korea, Marine pilot Capt. JesseFolmar was credited with downing of a MIG-15 jet fighter. The F4U-4 was powered by a Pratt and Whitney R-2800-18W engine driving a 13ft. 2in. diameter propeller. It was armed with four 20mm cannon and eight 5 in. rockets or two 1,000 lb. bombs. Drop tanks were used to extend range and were mounted on the center section of the wing. The Corsair was the first U.S. fighter of any type to exceed a speed of 400 m.p.h. in level flight and gained the distinction of being the last propeller driven fighter built in the United States. The Revell/Mongram 1/48 scale model scene on this site depicts two different types of F4U-4 of Marine Squadrons VMF 312 and VMF 323 which flew in the Korean War
