F4U-4 under the rear stab. I'm not aware of ANY V-166's registered - that was a prototype designation only.
Wonder how many folks know about the FG corsair, made by Goodyear? Pretty much the same bird except it had a updraft carburetor, on start up invariably dripped fuel on ground frequently starting a fire beneath the cowling. usually just blew out on rev up. otherwise someone had to be standing by with a extinguisher. Another annoying thing was that the electronics was mostly located behind the pilots protective armor plate which had to be removed for access to the gear, it was heavy.

Corsair / Whistling Death / Yes, certainly built a few of these models when I was a kid.
Beautiful looking airplane.
As a kid I had this, the Mustang, and the Lightning. I knew they were on the same side, but that didn't keep me from dog fighting them for hours. The imagination of a young boy.

I understand sponsorships, but I hate the Red Bull Logo and name on such an iconic plane.

Kid? I just finished an F4-1A kit in 1:32 that was wonderful. It was a terrific plane once they got it all figured out to land and take off from carriers. The F-35C had almost the same problem: too springy main gear that would bounce and not let it catch a wire. They solved that one too.

Myles Marcovitch - at the current retail prices of plastic scale aircraft model kits nowadays... and given the complexity of assembly and properly painting one... it's no longer a "kid's" hobby!

I agree with Jim Loughner, beautiful aircraft,hate the RB logo!

Excellent catch Andreas!! Even with Navy markings, reminds me of my round of golf with Gregory "Pappy" Boyington. Thank You, sir!
