Description

Oxford Diecast Aviation Series Model

Vought F4U-1 Corsair 2nd Lt. Donald L. Balch, VMF-221, USMC, 1943

1:72 Scale.  Length: 5.5.  Wingspan: 6.75



Donald L. Balch was a US Marine Corps pilot during World War II. While serving with VMF-221 he was credited with five aerial victories, two at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands and three while assigned to the USS Bunker Hill.

The F4U Corsair was a carrier-capable fighter aircraft that saw service primarily in World War II and the Korean War. It paired a lightweight fuselage with a powerful engine and large propeller. The Corsair served in smaller air forces until the 1960s, following the longest production run of any piston-engine fighter in US history (19421952). Some Japanese pilots regarded the F4U Corsair as the most formidable American fighter aircraft of World War II.


Oxford presents a range of value priced, high quality, die-cast model airplanes. Every model is crafted using specifications of the original aircraft.

This model of an F4U Corsair features:

  • Diecast metal construction with some plastic parts
  • Realistic panel lines
  • Detailed cockpit
  • Historically accurate markings
  • Fixed non-rotating propellers
  • Display stand



  • Category: Oxford Diecast 1:72 Military Aircraft Models
