Limited Edition of 2000 Models Worldwide


No. 600 (City of London) Squadron RAuxAF was formed at RAF Northolt on October 14th 1925. It moved to RAF Hendon at the end of 1926, replacing its DH.9As, with more modern Westland Wapitis in 1929. It was designated a fighter squadron in July 1934.

K2986 was part of a batch of Hawker Harts delivered to 600 squadron in January 1935, pending the arrival of the Hawker Demons. They were distinguished by the squadron's colourful red and white markings worn on the upper wing and fuselage sides. By 1937 the conversion to Demons was complete and K2986 was shipped as SR-4 to the Southern Rhodesian Air Force for use in the advanced training and army-co-operation role.

Entering service with the RAF in 1930, the Hawker Hart was possibly the most versatile aircraft of the 'Inter war' period. Designed by Sydney Camm as a two-seat daylight bomber, it spawned several variants including a fighter, seaplane, reconnaissance aircraft, and trainer. The Hart day bomber had a single 525 hp (390 kW) Rolls-Royce Kestrel IB V12 engine; a maximum speed of 185 mph (298 km/h) and a range of 430 miles (692 km).


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.
