Corsair kit was used to recreate the F4U-1D flown by RCN Lt. "Hammy Grey",
The only modification to the kit was clipping the wing tips to
conform with the RN Fleet Air Arm version.
Lt Grey, a Canadian, was killed on the last day of WW2 while attacking a
Japanese ship in harbour. Even though his aircraft was severely
damaged, Grey pressed home the attack, sinking the ship.
