The Vought F4U-1 Bird Cage first production model now joins the 1/72 War Birds Collection. This variant of 60752 Vought F4U-1D features new parts to depict the Bird Cage corsair's frame-like canopy and other unique features. Model includes high quality Cartograf decals for 4 sets of markings depicting planes serving with U.S. Navy and Marine Corps fighter squadrons.

In 1938, the U.S. Navy issued a call for a new high-speed and high-altitude capable single-seat carrier based fighter plane to replace the Grumman F2F/F3F biplane. The Vought aircraft company rose to the challenge with their F4U Corsair, which mounted a massive 2,000hp engine and was fitted with the largest propeller yet used on a fighter. It was instantly recognizable for its inverted gull wings, which were designed to enable short and sturdy landing gears, while still providing enough clearance for the propeller. The F4U was the first U.S. fighter to exceed 400mph (644km/h) in level flight and was one of the most successful American planes introduced during WWII. The first production model F4U-1 was nicknamed "Bird Cage" for its frame-like cockpit canopy, and was deployed to U.S. Navy and Marine Corps squadrons in the Pacific as a land and carrier based fighter.

Kit represents first production model F4U-1, including intricate detailing of the frame-like cockpit canopy that earned this plane the nickname, Bird Cage
New parts depict canopy, propeller, short tail wheel and wing trailing flap without access step
High quality Cartograf decals for 4 different markings of U.S. Navy and Marine Corps planes, including aircraft from the well-known VMF-214 Black Sheep and VF-17 Jolly Rogers squadrons
