A rare bird indeed has been chosen as the subject for the last model in the exclusive Corgi Aviation Archive Club ‘Captive Eagle’ series. Representing a Gloster Gladiator that fell into enemy hands during World War II, the 1:72 scale model (Ref. AA36208) will be presented in signature Aviation Archive Collectors Club packaging and priced at £35. This price includes UK p&p and a year’s membership to the Corgi Aviation Archive Collectors Club.

Aircraft captured during the conflict were highly prized, often delivering the latest enemy technology into the hands of either the Nazis or the Allies. These aircraft were duly carried off for exhaustive evaluation, before being flown against their own kind to develop effective attack techniques.

We look forward to bringing you more on this fascinating subject in a future issue of the magazine. For more information, telephone 0844 800 4095, or email: collectorclubs@questar.co.uk
