This is a whole franchise that passed me by, I know nothing of Buck Rogers so I bring this from Wikipedia: "Anthony Rogers is a fictional character that first appeared in Armageddon 2419 A.D. by Philip Francis Nowlan in the August 1928 issue of the pulp magazine Amazing Stories. A sequel, The Airlords of Han, was published in the March 1929 issue. The adventures of Buck Rogers in comic strips, movies, radio and television became an important part of American popular culture. This pop phenomenon paralleled the development of space technology in the 20th century and introduced Americans to outer space as a familiar environment for swashbuckling adventure."

So now I know all I need to know.

The Corgi model was made from 1980 to 1983 and featured retractable wings and firing rockets, it was supplied with 10 spare rockets, and Wilma Dearing & Tweaky figures. There are no listed variations and values are pretty good for complete, boxed examples with all the bits & pieces present.
