Hobby Master 1:48 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Vought F4U-2 Corsair – "Midnite Cocktail", Captain Howard Bollman, VMF(N)-532, USMC, Saipan, July 1944

1:48 Scale.  Length: 8.25".  Wingspan: 10"



Limited production of approximately 500 models worldwide


F4U-2 Corsair “Midnite Cocktail” from VMF(N)-532 was assigned to Lt. Caniff but was flown by several pilots. On April 1, 1944 Captain Howard Bollman was piloting this aircraft when several Japanese G4M “Bettys” from Saipan were encountered by Bollman and two other Corsairs from VFM(N)-532. The 3 Bettys were all shot down and “Midnite Cocktail” received a kill marking on its nose. Later in 1944 the Americans captured Saipan and used the airfield to advance toward the Japanese homeland.

The Vought F4U Corsair was a carrier-capable fighter aircraft used during World War II and the Korean War. First flown on May 29, 1940, the F4U entered operational service in 1942. It paired a lightweight fuselage with a powerful engine and a large propeller. In addition to its use by the United States and Great Britain, the F4U was also used by New Zealand, France, and other air forces (some until the 1960s) following the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in United Stated history (1942-53). A total of 12,571 Corsairs were manufactured in 16 variants.
