|B-17F Flying Fortress & Bf 109G-6: 2-Piece 1/72 Die Cast Set|
December 20th, 1943
Returning back from a successful bombing mission on December 20, 1943, 379th Bomber Group Lt. Charlie Brown's B-17F Flying Fortress, "Ye Olde Pub," drew heavy fire from enemy fighters, sustaining heavy damage. Noticing Brown's bomber was flying defenseless, JG 27 fighter pilot and 28-victory ace Franz Stigler escorted it safely out of enemy airspace. The two men would finally meet one another in the 1980s.
Commemorating that moment of humanity amid the chaos of war, this limited edition, 1/72 scale, die cast Corgi model set includes Brown's B-17F and Stigler's Bf 109G-6, both featuring engraved panel lines, a well-equipped cockpit with glazed windows, realistic engine fronts with rotating propellers, optional-position landing gear, authentic markings, crew figures, and a display stand. The B-17F has a 17¼" wingspan while the Bf 109G-6 has a 5½" wingspan; both arrive ready to display.
