The Corsair flies again thanks to Retro 51!
Here’s the newest member of Retro 51’s Antique Metalsmith series honoring the classic aircraft of WWII. The Vought F4U Corsair was the first American-made flyer to reach 400 miles per hour in level flight. Its distinctive features made it a favorite for outperforming the Japanese during World War II. The solid metal Corsair Tornado has acid etched “rivets” along the barrel; the body is printed with the plane’s markings and trimmed with gunmetal accents.
