Default Corgi Flying Boats of WWII

While the folks from Corgi provide us with numerous blasts from the past, the Canso Cats and Shorts Brothers have taken my wallet for a ride...the latest acquisition being this RAAF Sunderland! Also waiting for the RCAF Coastal Command version to show up on the launching ramp shortly but couldn't wait to show this one off

The Sunderland is a stunning bit of diecast, detailed, weighty, accurate. Love the fact the depth charge racks come out and the front turret moves inside. I got the first release and that'll do me, I even bought a perspex cube to fit it in on top of my other cabinets.
