49403 11 Corgi   Lightning T5 - XS417 BT, 11 Sqn RAF, PLANECRAZY CODE 3 £ 0.00
      Out of stock
  EXCLUSIVE PLANECRAZY CODE 3 SPECIAL COMMISSION: Lightning T5 XS417 "BT" of 11 Squadron based at RAF Binbrook in 1981. This is a one off item, so does not have a limited edition certificate.

A code 3 model is a professionally modified version of a manufactured diecast aeroplane. This means that the markings and box art are different. Also in this instance the entire top fuselage has been removed and replaced with a different one, in order to accurately portray the flowing lines of the side by side seating arrangement of the Lighting training aircraft. This has been long sought after by collectors.
