Football War Corsair Anyone?

Recommended Posts

What are the major issues with the Hobbycraft/Trumpy Corsair, or should I not ask?

What kit would be a suitable replacement for it?

What are the major flaws? It's not Tamiya.

Get the Tamiya kit.

Trumpeter has problems with some engine details, cowl tapers instead of having cylindrical shape, weird spaces between the cowl cooling flaps, cockpit simplified, problems with shape and details at exhaust openings and surrounding details, wings have multiple problems including dodgy hinged flaps, bad shapes to wheel well doors, well detail, and poorly done fabric texture on outer wing panels. That is off the top of my head. I am sure there is more, but I start babbling after getting that far...

Buy a really good jack knife and 2 two foot long 2x4's  and start whittling now, and you'd be miles ahead of the Trump Corsair.  Trust me, I've tried to fix it.
