if its just a corsair and e starter, I'd pack the wings and fuse's together in a big box (put the fuses nose-to-tail) and cover EVERYTHING with peanuts. If you want, you could add internal bracing so the box doesn't get crushed (or make a plywood box, a 4x8 sheet of CDX is pretty cheap ~$15)

I was gonna say that you should pack each plane in a box with bubble wrap and then put that box in a larger box with foam peanuts. Place it so it is suspended in the peanuts. Box 1 protects the plane from denting and box 2 serves as crush protection.

I said never mind because I figured this to be overkill, but since you asked that is what I would do.
