Over 30 NEW Corgi Items Coming in Over the Next Few Months!

New releases will be flying out of Corgi at a breakneck pace for the next few months! We are excited to highlight a few of them from many different eras of military aircraft!

Let's start with one of the quintessential WWI planes. The Sopwith Camel is credited with shooting down over 1,200 enemy aircraft; more than any other allied aircraft in that conflict!

Now, let's fast forward to WWII and take a look at this P51D Mustang. The Mustang was rolled out in 1940 and was in military service around the world until the early 1980's. It is believed that the P51 shot down nearly 5,000 enemy aircraft during WWII.
