Sky Guardians. This is the kind of diecast you display right next to your recliner, next to a hot cup of coffee, while you read through your latest Osprey spine-tingler. Even though I'm not particularly fond of the canopy, and the pilot looks like a mummified horror from an Indiana Jones movie, it's still a fun model to own. Hopefully Witty will grace us with more (different paint jobs, of course).

Now, the Witty Box Top Company, which is just a few doors down from the Corgi Box Top Company, mangled and typo'd its way through Norwotny (it's Nowotny), and Haupymann (it's Hauptmann). However, these mistakes do make the mind wander, and you can only ask yourself, indeed, was Norwotny a HoppyMann? Mmmm...just curious.
