Corgi Aviation Archive Collector Series AA31925 Supermarine
Spitfire Mk IX Diecast Model RAF No.411 (Grizzly Bear) Sqn, RR201, Dick Audet,
RAF Heesch, Holland, 1944
French Canadian ace "Dick" Audet was serving with
No. 411 "Grizzly Bear" Sq. when he opened his account in spectacular
fashion on December 29, 1944, by downing five aircraft in quick succession. In
the month that followed, he gained several other victories before being killed
on March 3, 1945, when his aircraft was hit by flak during a strafing mission.
His score stood at ten claims at this time.
Supermarine Spitfire Mk IX
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 power plant
and firepower provided by twin cannons and four machine guns, the Spitfire
became an unrivalled 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.
Corgi's 1:72 scale Spitfire series includes many versions of
this famous aircraft, from Mk I to the Griffon-engined variants with five
bladed propellers. The characteristic under-wing mounted pitot tube and offset
radiator and oil cooler ducts are mounted below the solid metal wings with a
variety of machine guns and cannons. The all metal horizontal stabilizers and
rudder feature simulated fabric stretched control surfaces. On some releases,
the top engine cowing is removable to reveal engine detail engine and exhaust
detail. The model is constructed almost entirely of solid diecast metal and
feels surprisingly heavy in this scale.
