F4U Corsair ARF Kit

F4U Corsair Photo

This .40 - sized Corsair is 90% prebuilt - 100% impressive!

Even if you have no time for building, you can enjoy a classic warbird—it's the first-ever .40-sized Corsair ARF that's scale! All of the full-size fighter's unique contours have been accurately reproduced, and since the major sections are factory-built and covered, it can be flight-ready in just a few evenings.

  • Elevator and rudder control linkages are internally concealed to more faithfully reproduce the Corsair's scale lines

  • Standard fixed landing gear is included, but the model will accept 90° rotating retracts for added realism (Hobbico Mechanical 90° Rotating Retracts, HCAP4060, recommended)

  • The round cowl perfectly fits the fuselage, and, like all the plastic parts in the kit, comes pre-painted to match the plane's colors

  • Top-quality Great Planes hardware and a step-by-step, photo-illustrated instruction manual ease the completion process
