Aircraft Pictorial 08: F4U Corsair, Vol. 2.

Aircraft Pictorial 08: F4U Corsair, Vol. 2.
Following on the heels of our remarkable Birdcage Corsair book, Classic Warships is pleased to announce F4U-1 Corsair, Volume 2, the eighth book in our Aircraft Pictorial series. Volume 2 covers the "raised cabin" versions of the F4U-1: the so-called "-1A," the -1C, and the -1D. Author Dana Bell spent two years researching this book, and his efforts have resulted in an entirely new technical history of the World War II Corsair. This heavily illustrated book provides a wealth of details for the modeler and restorer, and a fresh new understanding for the armchair historian and enthusiast.
