Brand new for 2007, Corgi is pleased to bring you another dimension to our Aviation Collectibles range Corgi Predators. Focusing on six of the most iconic aircraft military history has seen, these are the true predators of the skies.

Each model comes with a booklet detailing the story behind the pilot, mission or squadron, plus the box is packed with technical information about the plane. If you collect any 12 of the 18 releases in the Predators range, send in the tokens found in each pack for a free display wallet to keep the story booklets in.

Grumman F6F Hellcat

Developed by Grumman to combat the Japanese Zero, the carrier-based F6F Hellcat was first flown on June 26, 1942. The Hellcat was a far more potent force than its predecessor, the Wildcat. It had increased fuel capacity, a low-mounted wing, wide landing gear, strengthened cockpit armor plating, and increased ammunition capacity. The big Double Wasp engine was set three degrees off the center axis, giving the aircraft a tail-down attitude in flight. Pilots' stories of "mostly holes where the airplane used to be" underscore the Hellcat's ability absorb unbelievable punishment and still return to the ship.
