1/72 US Navy Fighter Vought F6U-1 Pirate (Early)

by  Admiral
Product Description
This item is an injection-plastic jet aircraft model kit.   Click here for sizing chart.

New from Czech maker Admiral is this model of the Vought F6U-1 Pirate. This was Vought's first jet fighter, and unfortunately a complete failure!  It did however earn the title of first US Navy jet with an afterburner, which was added on to the basic design in an attempt to improve the original design's abyssmal performance.  In that it succeeded - performance went from "abyssmal" to just "bad".


Still this looks to be a very nice kit of a very bad airplane, with recessed panel lines, a detailed one-piece resin cockpit tub (seat molded in place) and photoetched detail parts.  Markings are provided for two early-production aircraft (without the auxiliary vertical fins on the horizontal stabilizers): XF6U-1 "532" and F6U-1 BuNo. 122483.
