"... very playable if you are getting this for a child. Very sturdy plane, even the landing gear can take a hard landing. I must admit, it is fun to "swoosh" the plane around." ~ Ross H., customer
American fighter plane produced between 1942 and 1953 (12,571 were manufactured). At first, it proved unsuitable as the carrier-borne aircraft it was designed to be because of landing problems and was subsequently used from land bases by the US Marine Corps. When carrier landing issues were subsequently overcome by the Royal Navy, it quickly became the most capable carrier-based fighter-bomber of World War II and later served almost exclusively as a fighter-bomber throughout the Korean War and during the French colonial wars in Indochina and Algeria.
This unique brick plane has rotating flaps, retractable landing gear, cockpit with figure, rotating propeller and folding wings.
