COBI WACO CG-4 History:

The WACO CG-4, affectionately known as the “Hadrian,” stands as a symbol of Allied ingenuity and bravery during World War II. Designed as a military glider, the CG-4 played a crucial role in airborne operations, particularly during the D-Day invasion of Normandy. These gliders were used to transport troops, equipment, and supplies behind enemy lines, providing vital support to ground forces and helping to secure key objectives during the largest amphibious assault in history.

To commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day and honor the legacy of the WACO CG-4, COBI has introduced a new LEGO compatible set, Model 5755. With meticulous attention to detail and authentic markings, this set faithfully recreates the iconic glider, allowing builders to relive the historic events of June 6, 1944, and pay tribute to the courage of the soldiers who participated in the operation. Featuring a scale model of the CG-4, complete with LEGO compatible pieces and easy-to-follow instructions, this set offers both educational value and a rewarding building experience for enthusiasts of all ages.

The WACO CG-4 glider played a vital role in numerous airborne operations throughout World War II, including Operation Market Garden and the Rhine crossing. Despite being unarmed and vulnerable to enemy fire, these gliders were instrumental in delivering troops and equipment to their designated landing zones with precision and speed. The WACO CG-4’s versatility and reliability made it an indispensable asset to Allied forces, contributing to the success of some of the war’s most daring and audacious missions.
