This is the new Tamiya Vought F4U-1 Corsair Birdcage 1/32 Scale Electric Airplane.
The F4U-1 Corsair was a truly unique aircraft, with a massive 4m propeller and a powerful 2,000hp engine, not to mention its highly characteristic inverted gull-wings. In October of 1940, the F4U-1 Corsair was the first American fighter to achieve a speed of 400mph (around 640kph). Initial production models of the Corsair featured a striking canopy called the "Birdcage". The aircraft took part in operations from February 1943, and with its powerful 12.7mm machine guns proved to be a formidable opponent for the Japanese Zero Fighters.
In order to capture the aircraft as accurately as possible, Tamiya engineers and designers not only measured, inspected, and examined the real aircraft at five different museums across North America, but they were also given access to Northrop-Grumman's blueprints. The result is a precise and highly detailed 1/32 scale model of the F4U-1 Corsair.
