New book, 72 pages. Following on the heels of our remarkable Birdcage Corsair book, Classic Warships is pleased to announce F4U-1 Corsair, Volume 2, the eighth book in our Aircraft Pictorial series. Volume 2 covers the "raised cabin" versions of the F4U-1: the so-called "-1A," the -1C, and the -1D. Author Dana Bell spent two years researching this book, and his efforts have resulted in an entirely new technical history of the World War II Corsair. This heavily illustrated book provides a wealth of details for the modeler and restorer, and a fresh new understanding for the armchair historian and enthusiast. Contents: 113 photos and 20 drawings, most never before published - full production lists, including starting and ending serial numbers of major revisions - the revised story of post-war Reserve markings - a new explanation of the fixed-wing, land-based Corsair - details of the British carbon monoxide extraction system - the first details of the two different wingtips fitted to British Corsair: the short wingtips and the "short short" wingtips - details of the Mark 5 rocket projectile installation - photos of the stall warning system - closeups of the 20mm guns fitted to the F4U-1C - details of all three tail gear door installations - details of the field-installed camera mounts - details of the twin pylon installations of the -1D - details of the centerline stores installation, including both Brewster bomb racks - details of the rare pyrotechnic pistol installation - cockpit changes for the raised cabin installation - drawings and color call-outs for the Fleet Air Arm's camouflage - the story of the Corsair's many canopy and windscreen variations - images of the engine installation, including details of the water-injection system - the first published images of the FG-3 - the background of the Corsair's return to carrier operations - the interrelated stories of Brewster and Goodyear production.
