Corgi Forward March US59107
RAF No.74 Sqn, Group Captain Adolph "Sailor" Malan
One of the Royal Air Force's most successful Spitfire pilots in the first two years of World War II, South African-born 'Sailor' Malan earned his nickname following pre-war service in the Merchant Navy. Already an ace by the time of the Battle of Britain, he led No. 74 Sqn for much of the campaign and had increased his score to 14 by year-end. Responsible for writing the RAF fighter pilot's 'bible', the Ten Rules of Air Fighting, Malan claimed his 27th, and final kill, in July 1941. Promoted to the rank of group captain, he survived the conflict as RAF Fighter Command's leading ace.
These figures are made to go with the existing range of 1:32 World War II Corgi Aircraft.
The Corgi "Forward March" range presents highly-detailed, ready-made spin-cast figures in 1:32 (54mm) and 1:50 (36mm) scale. Over the last 50 years Corgi has earned a reputation as one of the finest producers of highly detailed, die-cast, historically accurate vehicle and aircraft models. These same values and principles have now been applied to a brand new range of hand-painted, spin-cast metal miniature figurines - the FORWARD MARCH collection. Our same commitment to quality and authenticity shines through in every figure - from aviators to World War II infantry and elite forces, these figures capture the essence of the period down to the buttons on the tunics and the look of confidence and resignation in their detailed faces! Many of these figures are the perfect compliment to existing Corgi military and aviation collections - what better way to bring additional life to your existing collection than by creating your own custom-made vignette with vehicles and figures.

- Spin-cast metal construction.
