It looks fantastic! I hope I understood that properly. Two models in one box! I wonder what the price is?

Indeed:  two complete 1/48 F4U models, that is, one F4U-1A and one F4U-2. So a 2-in-1 kit.

Features of the kit:

1. Wings can be built to fold and unfold positions.

2. Overall detailed rivets and lines in skin replicated.

3. Accurate engine appearance and external details replicated.

4.  Instrument panel parts without details for modelers to use aftermarket 3D decals easily.

5. Optional positions for separated rudder control surface, flaps and ailerons.

6.  Exhaust pipes goes with different engine models included.

9.  Bomb bay can be built open, with gun and belt provided for your preference. 

10. Rich details of landing gear and wheel well.

11. Finely printed decals included for 4 painting schemes

12. Fine PE included.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

I'm hoping, given the wording here, they're talking about a/the "gun bay/s", not a "bomb bay".

Missed the weapons sets & the Iron Dome earlier. They look very tempting! 8)

But, if the Iron Dome costs anything like the various Patriot systems, that will be staying on the store shelves for someone else to buy. ::)

Iím pretty sure they mean gun bays but the Corsair did have bomb bays in the wings for anti aircraft bombs, meant to be drop on enemy aircraft formations. Such was a theory back in the 30s that didnít last long once the war started. The wings on the Corsair barely changed over the years so IIRC the bomb bays were always there.
