1/72 Warplanes
Corgi United States

F4U-1D - USMC Corsair - VMF-312 - Okinawa, 1945
Aviation Archive. War in the Pacific - The Battle of Okinawa. The gloss finish on this model is both odd and unrealistic. In the pictures the airplane sort of glows, especially when there are flat-painted models in the background. Don't understand why Corgi used a gloss finish, and a better fiinish might have been midnight blue semi-gloss to represent a factory fresh Corsair. Anyway, generally, the Corgi Corsair is a classic, with perhaps the best landing gear ensemble and pilot figure of any of the first generation range. This version is still very collectable, perhaps especially more so because of the unusual gloss paint job.
