Brand new for 2007, Corgi is pleased to bring you another dimension to our Aviation Collectibles range — Corgi Predators. Focusing on six of the most iconic aircraft military history has seen, these are the true predators of the skies.

Each model comes with a booklet detailing the story behind the pilot, mission or squadron, plus the box is packed with technical information about the plane. If you collect any 12 of the 18 releases in the Predators range, send in the tokens found in each pack for a free display wallet to keep the story booklets in.

Grumman TBF Avenger

Designed to replace the Douglas TBD Devastator, the TBF Avenger was first flown on August 1st, 1941. Capable of staging torpedoes, drop bombs and rockets, this single engine aircraft could also be outfitted with a combination of machine guns and cannons, which allowed it to act as a dogfighter. The robust Avenger design gave it the ability to withstand enemy air attacks and allowed it to serve throughout WWII, with dire consequences for the Japanese fleet. Postwar, the Avenger was still in service—retrofitted for other important functions including electronic warfare, anti-submarine warfare and target towing.
