33905 Corgi   Spitfire Mk I -.92 Sqn RAF, Stanford Tuck 1/32 Woking Range £
      Out of stock
     
  Corgi Working range 1/32 scale diecast model of Supermarine Spitfire Mk I Diecast Model of No.92 Sqn RAF, as flown by ace pilot Robert Stanford Tuck, RAF Tangmere, England, May 1940, Electronic Limited edition of 1,940 pieces. This is the world's first range of working diecast model aircraft. In addition to the removeable engine covers, sliding canopy and moving control surfaces the propeller rotates and there is the sound of a Merlin engine, plus the navigation lights operate from a specially designed stand containing batteries. NOW FOR THE BAD BIT: The undercarriage SHOULD lower and raise, but I cannot get it to do so. Maybe someone has the ability to rectify this, or of course the model looks amazing on its stand in the in flight configuration. Please only buy this model if you are happy with the defect. BARGAIN PRICE

On May 23, 1940, Robert Roland Stanford Tuck claimed three Bf110s and one Bf109. The following day he shot down two Do17s, with five more shot down in the days that followed. King George VI awarded Tuck the Distinguished Flying Cross for his bravery.


Designed by R.J.Michell to meet a British Air Ministry specification, the Supermarine Spitfire first flown on March 5th, 1936. With its combination of beautiful fighter design, the excellent performance of its Rolls-Royce Merlin powerplant and firepower provided by twin cannons and four machine guns, the Spitfire became an unrivaled symbol of victory. The Spitfire had 40 major variants and was built in greater numbers than any other British aircraft of the time. It flew operationally on every front between 1939 and 1945 and was engaged in every one of the Royal Air Force's major actions.
