Another plastic addition that I found at TRU for $39.99. Like I said before, the detail is unreal! Just about everything moves: rudder, prop, tail, flaps, heat exhaust, canopy, landing gear...The c*ckpit is almost is well done. Also as you can see, the wings fold up like the real thing.
Cool Corsair!! How do the wings lock in place? I made a model of that when I was a kid. Is that paricular one taken from an particular aricraft carrier? If I recall right, the gull wing was to help keep the plane stable But my memory about could be a little foggy. :confused Bringing things forward a few decades, I really like the carrier-borne Vigilante which was a bomber.
Felix, I don't know anything about the 1:1 that this represents but it has 10 "kills" on the side. I imagine that it was carrier based. The wind go out and have sliding hinge. It has tabs and bosses for them to remain in place. It is fragile and won't take much "playing with them.
Souky, I wonder if that Avenger is 'scratch built'? I did not know that they were out. I have also fantisized about pumping lead out of the twin-50's out back! :giggle Isn't there a 'belly' turret also? About the only other place that I would had found myself back then would had been in the tail of a B-17. :giggle
