Limited Edition of 1,000 Models Worldwide


Without doubt, one of the most attractive schemes on an RAF aircraft was the one that adorned Panavia Tornado GR.4 ZA461 of No.15(R) Squadron, while it was still based at Lossiemouth in Northern Scotland. With the impending drawdown of the remaining RAF Tornado force looming this aircraft became something of a talismanic airframe for the ‘Mighty Fin’ and the proud record of this magnificent aircraft. Sadly, No.15 Squadron disbanded in March 2017, ending a glorious 102 years of service with the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Air Force, while also bringing to an end Scotland’s long association with the Panavia Tornado. The last three remaining Tornado Squadrons are all now based at Marham in Norfolk, where they will remain until their intended service withdrawal date in 2019.

The Panavia Tornado is a two-seat variable sweep wing combat aircraft originally developed by the United Kingdom, Germany and Italy in three primary versions: IDS (Interdictor /Strike), ECR (Electronic Combat / Reconnaissance) and ADV (Air Defense Variant) Interceptor. The Tornado is in service with the UK Royal Air Force and the air forces of Germany, Italy and Saudi Arabia.


The Corgi Aviation Archive features a wide selection of high quality, ready-made, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, using specifications of the original aircraft. Corgi models are built with diecast metal and some plastic components.
