Corgi Trips the Light Fantastic with Their Lightning

Corgi’s first ever 1:48 scale RAF English Electric F.6 Lightning Fighter – XR728/JS, 5 Squadron, RAF Binbrook, 1987

At long last, Corgi has lifted the veil of secrecy on their upcoming 1:48 scale English Electric Lightning fighter (AA28401). Scheduled for a 4th quarter release, their opening effort in the 1:48 scale category represents a plane flown by the RAF Binbrook Station Commander, which is liveried as a Lightning Training Flight. The actual aircraft is currently curated by the Lightning Preservation Group, located at the Bruntingthorpe Airfield Liecestershire. Thus far, only one image of the massive Lightning is shown on the Corgi web site, so we hope that more detailed photos will be added shortly. Priced at $179.99, it remains to be seen if enough interest can be generated both here and abroad to help it sell out so that a second version can be cranked out for the following year.
