The F4U Corsair is a carrier-based fighter aircraft manufactured by Chance Vought in 16 separate models. F4U Corsair served as fighter bombers in the Central Pacific and the Philippines. The F4U Corsair quickly became the most capable carrier-based fighter-bomber of World War II. This specific F4U Corsair model is the F4U-5NL Nite Corsair variant. The new design increased the F4U-4 Corsair's overall performance and incorporated many Corsair pilots' suggestions. It was also a winterized version; the aircraft was fitted with rubber de-icing boots on the leading edge of the wings and tail.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
