This 4-view drawing for the Chance Vought F4U-1 Corsair were scanned from my purchased copy of the October 1968 American
Aircraft Modeler magazine. Plans for this fine model were drawn by Mr. Björn Karlström. All copyrights (if any) are
"The Vought F4U Corsair was a carrier-capable fighter aircraft that saw service primarily in World War II and the
Korean War. Demand for the aircraft soon overwhelmed Vought's manufacturing capability, resulting in production by
Goodyear and Brewster: Goodyear-built Corsairs were designated FG and Brewster-built aircraft F3A. From the first
prototype delivery to the U.S. Navy in 1940, to final delivery in 1953 to the French, 12,571 F4U Corsairs were manufactured
by Vought, in 16 separate models, in the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in U.S. history (1942–1953)" -

on this great airplane.
Here's my Sterling F4U-1 Corsair C/L model.

The AMA Plans Service offers a
full-size version of many of the plans show here at a very reasonable cost. They
will scale the plans any size for you. It is always best to buy printed plans because
my scanner versions often have distortions that can cause parts to fit poorly. Purchasing
plans also help to support the operation of the
Academy of Model Aeronautics - the #1
advocate for model aviation throughout the world. If the AMA no longer has this
plan on file, I will be glad to send you my higher resolution version.
