1:144 Scale.  Length: 9.  Wingspan: 9.5"



Limited Edition


One of many Valiants to have something of a turbulent service life, WZ365 ranks among only a select group of Valiants to perform at the Farnborough Air Show in England, performing a flyby there prior to its delivery to No. 232 Operational Conversion Unit at RAF Gaydon in 1955. While serving there it suffered a canopy separation on June 6, 1956 and after repairs was transferred to No. 199 Squadron at RAF Wyton. It remained there until its final operational move to No. 18 Squadron at RAF Finningley on January 25, 1959. It was with this squadron that WZ365 was to see out the last of its days. In April 1963 it was transferred to St. Athan for storage and in 1965 it was scrapped along with nearly all of the other Vickers Valiants. Plagued by structural issues their time as an effective V-bomber was over and only one survives today.


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.
