WHISTLING DEATH - F4U Corsair

$39.00 USD

Best known for its gull wings, the F4U Corsair was iconic for its role in the Pacific Theatre during World War II. There’s dispute about the accuracy and claims of the Japanese calling this plane the “Whistling Death”, but the result of the nickname was due to the wing-root inlets for feeding air to the engine. And…if DEATH is not the word you wish to describe it, the F4U has been called “The Sweetheart” on occasion.

Artist's comment: Everyone knows the Corsair due to those gull wings. I found this to be a great way to decided on the propeller's position. I rarely ever seen the Corsair in any other color palette than blue, but it is part of its iconic character. Also, the horizontal stabilizer just so happens to be hidden from view behind the top two propeller blades. So, no, I wasn't being lazy on that detail.
