Postage Stamp - 1/100 F4U Corsair VF-84 #167 “Wolf Gang”

The F4U Corsair was a naval fighter aircraft with a production lifespan that covered World War II and the Korean War. In both conflicts, it was deployed to great effect by the US Navy and Marine Corps. The F4U had a maximum speed of 417 mph / 671 kph and carried six .50 caliber machine guns or four 20-mm cannons, as well as a pair of 2000 lb. bombs and six rockets.

This model is a replica of F4U aircraft #167, which was assigned to the VF-84 “Wolf Gang”, the US Navy’s first day-fighter Corsair squadron. They were under the command of air ace Roger Hedrick and based on the USS Bunker Hill as part of Task Force 58. The primary mission of these VH-84s was ground support, combat air patrol over targets in Japan, and defense against kamikaze attacks.

This diecast metal airplane model comes in 1:100 scale with plastic stand and is approximately 4 inches (10.2cm) long with a 4 3/4 inch (12cm) wingspan.
