Corgi brings to you the finest quality die-cast scale aircraft carefully researched and crafted with meticulous attention to detail. Each model is based on a specific aircraft from an important historical or modern era of flight, and it has been authentically detailed from original documents and archival library material.
  • Arguably the most effective version of the famous Heinkel HeIII series of bombers and certainly the one that was built in most numbers, the He III ‘H’ attempted to address some of the shortcomings of the earlier models and upgrade the performance of this widely used Luftwaffe aircraft. Successive upgrades enabled the aircraft to deliver a more effective weapons payload, whilst also providing the crew with much better defensive armament. The internal weapons bay was no longer used to carry bombs, but was converted to house an additional fuel tank, which allowed for much longer patrols and was particularly useful for maritime operations. Perhaps the most interesting missions carried out by ‘H’ model Heinkel He IIIs were those of the torpedo carrying maritime attack bombers, which flew at wave-top height, before delivering their payload of two air launched LT F5b torpedoes. Operating from the airfield at Bardufoss in northern Norway, the anti-shipping Heinkels of KG26 were involved in the infamous attack against Arctic convoy PQ17, which proved to be one of the most disastrous episodes in the history of the Royal Navy. July 2017 will mark the 75th Anniversary of this naval disaster.
