Crippled Corsair

If I have to name one plane that I really love and admire, that would be the F4U Corsair, especially the wartime variants. Actually this plane got me into scale modelling. When I was young, I came across with Revell's antic 1:32 Corsair, [...]

Revell F4U-4 Corsair VMF-214 “Black Sheep” Squadron, off the USS Sicily (CVE-118) Korea 1951
