Undoubtedly, World War II's most colorful Marine Corps ace was Gregory "Pappy" Boyington, whose hard-drinking, hard-living "Black Sheep Squadron" fought their way to fame in less than three months, piling up a record 197 planes destroyed or damaged, troop transports and supply ships sunk, and ground installations destroyed.

Pappy's plane was the formidable F4U Corsair with its unique bent wing, the result of a marriage between the most powerful engine ever installed in a piston-engined fighter and one of the world's biggest propellers. The new GWS semi-scale F4U Corsair ARF offers stable flight characteristics and a powerful gear-driven EPS350C motor system to provide plenty of outdoor aerobatic action. It's easy to put together too. Just a couple of evenings are all you'll need to assemble this prepainted, all-injected molded foam aircraft.
