F4U-4 Corsair, VMF-212, USMC, Korean War Mahogany Model

Hand-Painted Model has a 10.25" Length and 13" Wingspan

Craftsmen with over 30 years of experience gave life to this meticulously hand-carved mahogany wood desktop model. Scaled from an exact blueprint, this work of art was lavishly hand-painted with great concern for details and accuracy. A wood base and a brief history plate go with this desktop model.

The F4U-4 is the last variant of the F4U to be produced during WWII. It entered service four months before the end of hostilities. It had the dual-stage, supercharged R-2800-18W engine which produced 2,100 hp (1,566 kW) of power.

Believed to be the finest all around fighter of WWII, the F4U-4 arrived in combat early in 1945. It remained in service in the Korean War, where along with the F4U-5, it earned a sterling reputation for delivering ordnance with great accuracy. It could carry up to four 1,000 lb. bombs along with eight 5 inch rockets. Reportedly, it was not unusual to rig the F4U-4 with as much as 6,000 lbs of ordnance. With the robust structure of the Corsair, it did not operate from carrier decks, but exclusively from shore bases.

6× 0.50 in (12.7 mm) M2 Browning machine guns, 400 rounds per gun or
4× 20mm AN/M2 cannons
