F4U-1D Corsair, White 167, 57803, LCDR Roger R. Hedrick, VF-84, USS Bunker Hill, February 1945
Aviation Archive. A very attractive model with an excellent overall wheathered color and realistic leading-edge wear on the cowling, and on the wing and tail leading edges. The wear marks are probably the best I've seen on a Corgi model (the weathering on Corgi's Zeros is generally awful).

In addition, there are painted representations of engine exhaust carbon deposits, and painted cordite deposits behind the cartridge ejection ports under the wings. Effective representations of weathering marks are painted on the belly just behind the cowling.

All in all, this is the best Corgi Corsair I've seen.
