Vought F4U-1 Corsair

Vought F4U-1 Corsair

The Chance Vought F4U Corsair was an American fighter aircraft that saw service primarily in World War II and the Korean War. Demand for the aircraft soon overwhelmed Vought's manufacturing capability, resulting in production by Goodyear and Brewster: Goodyear-built Corsairs were designated FG and Brewster-built aircraft F3A. From the first prototype delivery to the U.S. Navy in 1940, to final delivery in 1953 to the French, 12,571 F4U Corsairs were manufactured by Vought,[1] in 16 separate models, in the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in U.S. history (1942–53).

This control line model of the Chance Vought F4U Corsair was designed by Dick Ealy and built by Ed Banta. The 22 inch wingspan model is powered by a.09 McCoy glow plug engine (or equivalent). This would be a good model to for the novice or beginner to build and fly. The fuselage construction is of box with elder formers to give the the rounded shape of the fuselage. The wing might be a problem for the novice model builder but the construction is pretty much straightforward and enough of a challenge that the novice could advance their knowledge of model building.

About the Plans Printing Service.

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

We can scale the Vought F4U-1 Corsair plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.
