 F4U-1A Corsair
Aviation Archive. War in the Pacific Collection . It finally occurred to my addled, aged, and ambling mind why Corgi was able to produce and eventually dispose of so many of its limited edition models: In the early years (and this model was made in 2004), they had virtually no competition in this scale! However, that said, this particular model is still available from certain online vendors.

This is a very nice version of the Corsair, and despite being a two-tone early-war version, it is very attractive. The bird-cage canopy is a standout, and the white landing gear struts and wheel wells offer good contrast. All in all, a worthwhile model to own.
