AU-1 Corsair History:

During the Korean War, the Corsair was used mostly in the close-support role. The AU-1 Corsair was developed from the F4U-5 and was a ground-attack version which normally operated at low altitudes: as a consequence the Pratt & Whitney R-2800-83W engine used a single-stage, manually controlled supercharger, rather than the two-stage automatic supercharger of the -5. The versions of the Corsair used in Korea from 1950 to 1953 were the AU-1, F4U-4B, -4P, and -5N and 5-NL. There were dogfights between F4Us and Soviet-built Yakovlev Yak-9 fighters early in the war, but when the enemy introduced the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15, the Corsair was outmatched. On 10 September 1952, a MiG-15 made the mistake of getting into a turning contest with a Corsair piloted by Marine Captain Jesse G. Folmar, with Folmar shooting the MiG down with his four 20 mm cannon. In turn, four MiG-15s shot down Folmar minutes later; Folmar bailed out and was quickly rescued with little injury.

F4U-5N and -5NL Corsair night fighters were used to attack enemy supply lines, including truck convoys and trains, as well as interdicting night attack aircraft such as the Polikarpov Po-2 “Bedcheck Charlies”, which were used to harass United Nations forces at night. The F4Us often operated with the help of C-47 ‘flare ships’ which dropped hundreds of 1,000,000 candlepower magnesium flares to illuminate the targets. For many operations detachments of U.S. Navy F4U-5Ns were posted to shore bases. The leader of one such unit, Lieutenant Guy Bordelon of VC-3 Det D (Detachment D), off USS Princeton, become the Navy’s only ace in the war, in addition to being the only American ace in Korea that used a piston engined aircraft. Bordelon, nicknamed “Lucky Pierre”, was credited with three Lavochkin La-9s or La-11sand two Yakovlev Yak-18s between 29 June and 16/17 July 1952. Navy and Marine Corsairs were credited with a total of 12 enemy aircraft.

More generally, Corsairs performed attacks with cannons, napalm tanks, various iron bombs, and unguided rockets. The 5 inch HVAR was a reliable standby; sturdy Soviet-built armor proved resistant to the HVAR’s punch, which led to a new 6.5 in (17 cm) shaped charge antitank warhead being developed. The result was called the “Anti-Tank Aircraft Rocket (ATAR).” The 11 in (28 cm) “Tiny Tim” was also used in combat, with two under the belly.

Lieutenant Thomas J. Hudner, Jr., flying an F4U-4 of VF-32 off USS Leyte, was awarded the Medal of Honor for crash landing his Corsair in an attempt to rescue his squadron mate, Ensign Jesse L. Brown, whose aircraft had been forced down by antiaircraft fire near Changjin. Brown, who did not survive the incident, was the U.S. Navy’s first African American naval aviator.

  1. Greg (verified owner)

    I really love this set. I was waiting for it for a long time. The wings fold!

  3. Michael MacDaniels (verified owner)

    This was a better build then the past 2 versions in my opinion. Love the Corsair and my son and I really enjoyed building this!

  4. John D (verified owner)

    Phenomenal plane. Amazing fit of the pieces. If this was a lego, it would cost hundreds of dollars. It also wouldn’t have as smooth of a rounded fuselage.

  5. Robert (verified owner)

    Excellent kit. Love these pad printed kits because they look so much better than the ones with the stickers.

  6. Gregg (verified owner)

    Excellent quality and the finished kit looks very nice, as I’ve come to expect from COBI. It is worth noting that this kit does not come with stickers; all the markings are pre-painting/printed on the bricks. This was, honestly, preferable for me but you may feel differently.

    My only (very minor) complaint would be the stand. While it fits very snugly, the plastic piece itself is rather thin. This means that with the full weight of the plane on it, it can wobble a bit.

    Overall, a very nice kit and highly recommended.

  7. Cesar (verified owner)

    Very nice looking aircraft set with great detail. It was easy to build too. This Corsair looks great next to my P-51 Mustang and F/A-18 planes.

  8. pkhepworth (verified owner)

    The best Cobi WWII ear plane I’ve purchased. I own mostly Cobi ships, which are absolutely excellent, btw, but the Corsair is highly detailed, well built, and the color is quite striking. The build was educational and better than the usual WWII era planes. I also love the Korean War version with all of the extra ordinance. Makes it look really cool. A definite buy, especially at this price.

  9. Dave (verified owner)

    This is a great set. The museum where I volunteer has a flightworthy Corsair in its collection. This highly detailed Cobi set will look great on display in the museum gift shop. Excellent quality.

  10. Ambarish (verified owner)

    Very beautiful set, might be the best cobi plane I have bought so far. Thoroughly enjoyed the build.

  11. Ben (verified owner)

    Nice model. Good quality

  12. Ben (verified owner)

    Great model. Awesome details

  13. Patrick Smith (verified owner)

    This set was my first foray into Cobi bricks. This model was fun to build, the instructions are a little difficult because of the print shading. The model looks fantastic, I love the lines on and angles and the printed pieces are well done. Overall it has solid playability, but there are a couple weaker points that may need to be re-attached after serious play (back half of fuel tank and stopping point when you bring the wings back down). There is a lot of value in this set.
