    Here is my Tamiya scale F4U-1A Corsair built straight from the box. This is still a great kit nearly 20 years after its release.

This will be the third Tamiya Corsair I have built which says straight away how much I rate this kit. There are full build reviews in SMN of my Birdcage and F4U-1A builds for you to have a look at. I decided to do this a little differently to the previous builds with regards to kit options. This one will have the wings folded and the flaps up.
