Corgi Hawker Hunter FR MK.58A "J-4025" "Patrouille Suisse" Dübendorf 1993

Limited Edition 1590 / 2300

The Swiss Air Force's national aerobatic team, "La Patrouille Suisse" (Swiss Air Force) was founded in 1964 and operated six smoke-equipped Hawker Hunter F.Mk.58s from Dubendorf Air Base. The team is not full-time, but flown by military pilots who are from the Surveillance Wing and usually train for the aerobatic team only once a week. There are 6 pilots and 1-2 reserve members. The leader chooses one of three different programmes, depending on the weather conditions, which lasts 16 minutes and only about 5-6 displays were undertaken each year. "Patrouille Suisse" made their UK debut at the International Air Tattoo at Greenham Common, Berkshire in July 1979 and have been regular participants ever since. They currently use Northrop F-5E Tigers.

Designed to exceed the performance of the straight-wing carrier-based Hawker Sea Hawk, the Hawker Hunter first flew on July 21, 1951. Early versions of this swept-wing aircraft suffered from a host of problems such as a short range (maximum flight endurance was only about one hour) and an unreliable engine, but a series of refinements resulted in an aircraft that went on to become history's longest-serving British jet fighter, with almost 50 years on the front lines. The Hunter's high power-to-weight ratio and improvements in armament and fuel capacity made it an appealing export, and during its service history it was operated by 19 different nations.

Corgi's 1:72 scale Hunter series spans the long history of this aircraft, from its use during the cold war to its role in military aerobatics. The model is heavy, constructed with only the smallest amount of plastic. The canopy is removable, revealing an intricately detailed pilot figure. Large port collector blisters are easily seen below the cockpit, with four cannon ports located forward. The ventral mounted speed brake is easy to configure in either deployed or closed configurations. Keyed landing gear provides an uncomplicated configuration for ground display. F9 and late F6 variants feature housing over the tailpipe for the braking parachute.

The Corgi "Aviation Archive" range presents highly-detailed, ready-made diecast models of military and civilian aircraft. The vast Aviation Archive range has become the standard by which all other diecast airplane ranges are judged. Each Corgi model is based on a specific aircraft from an important historical or modern era of flight, and has been authentically detailed from original documents and archival library material. Famous airplanes and aviators from both military and commercial airline aviation are all honored.
