Title:  TopDrawings 73, Chance Vought F4U Corsair

Author: Maciej Noszczak

Publisher:  Kagero

ISBN:  978-83-66148-21-5

Number 73 in the TopDrawings series from Kagero, with both 1/48 and 1/72 scale drawings of a good number of variants. As is usual with the series, there are some excellent colour profiles in the centre pages and on the back cover. Tuckes into the book as a separate sheet with the 1/48 plan views and another separate page of an excellent painting of a US Navy Corsair in action, ideal to pop in a clip frame and hang on your wall.

The plans highlight the slight differences between the different marks, and I for one learnt something new, with the different shape to the tip of the main wings on the later versions, including some used by the Royal Navy. One of these, a Corsair Mk 2 with the Fleet Air Arm, 757Sqn, on HMS Unicorn in July 1944 is the subject of the excellent colour artwork on the centre pages of the book itself.

Another good addition to this series from Kagero.
