Chance Vought F4U Corsair
About this creation

















This is my lego F4U corsair...i am very very happy with the way it came out although i think there could be some improvements, still I like the way it came out. I would also like too thank the moc page builder "The Pmiaki", because his F4U inspired me too build mine.........although I didnt want to copy his design........anyway the biggest feature this plane has.......wait a minute do I even need to say it?........ya I think I do.......it has folding wings!!!.........and let me tell you this, if I hadn’t been able to make the folding wings I would not have even attempted to build this moc.....literally........so please review I really want to know what you think thanks..........ONE LAST THING! i didnt make up the name "Grim Reaper" there was a model of an f4u that i had, that had that name........so i decided to call this one the same thing....also i ment to make the prop have 4 blades.....oh ya thought you might like too know the f4u corsair is one of my favorite planes.........but of corse i like the f-16 and b-17 better....:)




A Brief History of the F4U Corsair


The Chance Vought F4U Corsair was an American fighter aircraft that saw service in World War II and the Korean War (and in isolated local conflicts). Goodyear-built Corsairs were designated FG and Brewster-built aircraft F3A. The Corsair served in some air forces until the 1960s, following the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in U.S. history (1942–1952). During World War II, it was the fighter the Japanese feared the most. The U.S. Navy counted an 11:1 kill ratio for every F4U shot down.

This is pretty impressive. Would be better if the bricks were a darker blue though.

forgot that only the the later models of the corsair have 4 propellers. the ones in ww2 where mostly 3. but some 4

wow that is cool. just 1 thing. i think the wing folds down to steep at the body. but i love how u use bricks sideways for the wing. check out mine to see what i am talking about with the wings. but overall the corsair is great. and i like u used blue. i used black.

One of the best corsairs I have seen. I have problem building the body, but my biggest problem is constructing where the wing's fold so even when down for flight they do not become unattatched due to weight of the wings (not sure if that made sense).

very nice am a big fan of this plane myself. if you want a challenge then try building a p-61 black widow

Very good!! Could you provide me with some instructions? not step-by-step, but maybe "unbuild" it a little a little so I can make my own, I promise I won´t steal your idea.

The colour scheme matches your Corsair very well and gives a good contrast to your Zero, which I like, too. My MOCs somehow always tend to be in grey. Clever, how you constructed the gulled wings.

Self colored? Who Cares?! I'd go so far as to say you should try to submit this as well as your other WWII models to the LEGO Company!! AWESOME MOC!

hey, not bad!^^ it sure is a good construction, but i really dislike self-coloured bricks (especially when the colouring isnt well done -.-) though its a nice creation i can only give you 4/5 (try not to use bricks u have to cripple next time plz)

Thanks Ralph...i have too agree with when i say that i think there could be some changes...and like John pointed out the wings are a little short but actually its more that the camera angle makes them look shorter anyway thanks too everyone for revewing-----David

You did an excellent Corsair. This is one of my favorite planes from world war 2 and the best you´ve made...i like the small touches of SNOT and the working wings...Great Job!!!!! P.S. I´ve did another (third) version of my F-16, can you check it ?.....Bruno

Wow. My favorite plane immortalized in LEGO. I think I might love you...(Jk)

The wing design is a smart solution to a tricky wing shape. I built an F-86 Sabre with the same technique you used for the forward part of the fuselage, but I never took any pictures of it. Maybe I should rebuild it...

The Corsair is a very difficult aircraft to create so I think you did an excellent job here. Decals and workable folding wings are very nice.

The wings are obviously too short. All the rest is good. Well done. I think you're improving your MOCs. Keep goin' on !

Very accurate model, David. I have to correct Nick, the F4U-4 version had a four blade propeller with a 2350HP Pratt and Whitney R-2800-8 Engine. So, this Corsair is accurate.

A beautiful model. I like the extra painted details, such as the "Grim Reaper". Looks great next to the Zero (how can too killing machines look so pretty?) Personally, my fave WW2 Yank carrier fighter is the Grumman F6F!

That is beautiful design. Although the propeller has four blades instead of three, I think that the way you did it is fine. The shape is perfect, especially the tail. The decals are very creative and the folding wings are better than some of the folding wings I've seen. Overall, you made a great effort and were rewarded for it.
