All of them have a photo of a Corsair, but the kit inside is a Zero as stamped on the box end. The Consolidated flying solids were excellent kits and highly prefabricated. The were 100% solid (no tissue) U-control models designed for 1/2 A size engines.

The quality of the work is outstanding, straight and true to the plans. There is no other assembly. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
