Corgi are one of the original British manufacturers of metal aircraft models. Produced in diecast metal the original quality has been improved upon with the application of modern production techniques. The paintwork is superb, and the tampo printed insignia and markings bring each model to life. With the inclusion of wheels and wheel covers, most models can be displayed either "on the tarmac" or airbourne, usually on a display stand.
