Limited Edition of 1700 Models Worldwide


Formed in Palestine in August 1917, No. 111 Squadron had a long and illustrious career within the RAF, operating aircraft such as the Hurricane and Spitfire during WWII, before moving onto the Meteor F8 in the immediate post war period. The last aircraft 111 Squadron operated before disbandment in March 2011 was the Tornado F3, the last of RAF’s swing-wing interceptors. The Tornado has now been replaced by the Eurofighter Typhoon.

Serving the RAF well throughout its 25 years of service the Tornado F3 was the RAF’s standard interceptor throughout this period; guarding the UK’s airspace from their base at RAF Leuchars, Scotland, against any potential intrusions from aircraft such as Russian "Bear" reconnaissance aircraft.

The Panavia Tornado was jointly developed by the United Kingdom, West Germany and Italy in three primary versions: the Tornado IDS (Interdictor /Strike) fighter-bomber, the ECR (Electronic Combat/Reconnaissance) and the ADV (Air Defense Variant) Interceptor. The Tornado is one of the world’s most sophisticated and capable interdiction and attack aircraft with a large payload, long range and high survivability.


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.

This model of a Tornado F3 features:

  • Detailed cockpit with pilot figure
  • Adjustable sweep wings
  • Realistic panel lines
  • Historically accurate markings
  • Optional extended landing gear
  • Display stand
  • Numbered collector card
