Airfix A08013 Avro Lancaster B.I(F.E.)/B.III

Of all the RAF bombers involved in operations over Germany during the Second World War, the Avro Lancaster must rank as the most famous of them all. As the strategic bombing offensive gathered momentum, it was the Lancaster that came to the fore after entering service with the RAF in 1942, overshadowing its other four engine contemporaries, such as the Handley-Page Halifax and the Short Stirling.

Airfix A08001 Avro Lancaster BII

Of the RAF bombers involved in operations over Germany during the Second World War, the Avro Lancaster must rank as the most famous of them all. Although Merlin engines were the more usual power plant for the Lancaster, not all were produced using them. Due to the demands put on Rolls Royce by the production aircraft such as the Supermarine Spitfire and the DeHavilland Mosquito, there loomed a potential shortage of the vital Merlin and the BII variant was equipped with Bristol Hercules radial engines instead. The first of which was completed in September 1942.

Faster to 18,000ft, these radial engines were also able to soak up more damage than the normally fitted Merlin. However, the service ceiling was lower and with the perceived shortage over by 1944, the BII was phased out of service at the start on 1945. A worthy alternative to the normal variants, the BII proved to be popular with its crews and a capable version of the excellent bomber.

Airfix A06010 Consolidated B-24 Liberator B.VI

Produced in greater numbers than any other American aircraft, the Liberator had a long distinguished career with the US and Allied Air Forces. Never as glamourous as the B-17 Fortress, with which it shared the daylight heavy bombing offensive over Europe, the B24 did however, prove to be very capable bomber aircraft.


The B-24J in this kit was the most widely used of all the Liberators and saw extensive service, principally in the Pacific, where it was the main heavy bomber until the appearence of the B-29 in 1944. In Europe it flew daylight missions against Germany.

Airfix A55307 Westland Sea King HAR.3 Starter Set

Held in extremely high regard by the British public, the distinctive yellow Search and Rescue Sea King HAR.3 helicopters of the Royal Air Force always seemed to be on hand when help was needed most.  Many sailors, climbers and holidaymakers owe their lives to the highly capable SAR crews of the RAF, who were ready to save lives at any time of day, or night and in all weather conditions.

As the final RAF Search and Rescue Sea Kings are finally withdrawn from service, many people will be left with fond memories of these high profile helicopters of mercy.  Often the star of many a high profile news report, the Sea Kings were always seen helping people who found themselves in difficult situations, which in many cases could actually be life threatening.  The sight of a bright yellow Sea King always served to reassure the public and even when conducting general patrol sorties over Britain’s beaches, the crew would always be certain of receiving some affectionate waves from the holidaymakers below.

Airfix A55213 Boulton Paul Defiant

1:72 Scale.

Skill: 1

Finished Size (mm): L150 x W166

Number of Parts: 70


The Boulton-Paul Defiant was the only ‘turret fighter’ to enter service with the RAF. Using the philosophy that a fighter aircraft, armed solely with a turret bristling with machine guns would be able to enter a bomber stream causing havoc and the turret would also enable it to defend itself from enemy fighters, but soon the Luftwaffe pilots worked out its weaknesses, especially the lack of forward firing guns and the Defiant was soon relegated to night fighting duties were it fared better.

Airfix A55206 Gloster Gladiator Mk.I Starter Set

The Gloster Gladiator occupies an important place within the history of the RAF. The last of the RAF's biplane fighters, the Gladiator had some modern features, such as an enclosed cockpit, a first for an RAF fighter, as well as an armament of four machine guns.

Still in service at the outbreak of the war, the Gladiator proved to be a capable biplane fighter, but was outclassed against modern monoplane opposition. The mount of some of the RAF's most famous pilots, such as Pat Pattle and Roald Dahl, preserved Gladiators can still be seen flying today at Duxford and Old Warden air displays.

Paint Scheme - 80 Squadron, RAF Amriya, Egypt, early 1940

Airfix Starter Sets are ideal for beginners.  Medium Starter Sets are a little more challenging to build than the Small Starter Set range, with more parts.  Each Medium Starter Set includes glue, two brushes and six acrylic paints.

Finished Size (mm): L146 x W161

Number of Parts: 55


The de Havilland Vampire was the second jet fighter to enter RAF service, coming after the Gloster Meteor. Featuring a twin boom fuselage, which was to become a common feature of de Havilland designs, the Vampire proved a capable early jet fighter. The Vampire T.11 trainer was developed from the fighter versions and served the RAF until 1967. It was an excellent trainer and examples continue to fly today both in the UK and further afield.

Skill: 1

Number of Parts: 75


The A4-B was the second variant of the Skyhawk and one of the first to see combat in the skies over Vietnam, where it was involved in the early stages of the conflict, with later version serving throughout the campaign. Due to its small size, the A4 was able to operate off the smaller World War Two era Essex Class carriers, but it could still carry a useful payload to its target.

Airfix A55116 Hunting Percival Jet Provost T.4 Starter Set

The Jet Provost was introduced in the late 1950s and quickly became the RAF’s premier jet basic trainer. The T3 model, introduced in 1959, featured an uprated engine and an improved canopy design, offering the side by side seated pilot and pupil a much improved view. The Provost was a joy to fly, forgiving and easy to learn on, with many of the 1960s and 70s RAF front line pilots learning their trade on its un-swept wings. Its reliability and strength also added to its suitability as a jet trainer and the addition of wing tip tanks on the T3 also added to its endurance. The T.4 model introduced another upgrade to the engine but was otherwise unchanged from the T.3.

Airfix A55111 Hawker Hurricane Mk1

1:72 Scale.

Skill: 1

Finished Size (mm): L133 x W171

Number of Parts: 51


The Hurricane was developed as a replacement for the RAFs pre-war bi-plane fighters. Considered revolutionary when it was unveiled in 1935, by the start of WWII the earliest versions had fallen behind the performance of the best German fighters, but once fitted with 3-blade propellers these early Hurricanes were very successful during the Battle of Britain in 1940.

Airfix A55107 North American Mustang IV Starter Set

The North American P51 Mustang is viewed as one of the iconic American fighters of the Second World War.  Designed to an RAF specification, the Mustang was transformed once the Rolls Royce Merlin engine was installed. Its long range and excellent firepower made it a superb escort fighter, able to protect the bombers all the way to Berlin and back.  After the war, the P51 saw service in Korea and was used by some air arms up until the early 1980s.

Airfix A50179 Junkers JU87R-2 Gloster Gladiator Dog Fight Double Gift Set

The Gloster Gladiator represented the pinnacle of biplane fighter design, but despite its undoubted pedigree, it was almost obsolete as soon as it entered RAF service.  With both the Hurricane and Spitfire already in development, RAF Gladiator Squadrons saw little service with home based units during WWII.  Two Squadrons of Gladiators did take part in the Battle of France, where they managed to inflict surprisingly heavy losses on superior German aircraft types.  

During the early air engagements of the Second World War, RAF Gloster Gladiators were thrust into battle against significantly superior Axis forces.  In the hands of an experienced pilot, the Gladiator was easily capable of destroying most German aircraft types, with the exception of the feared Messereschmitt Bf 109.  The Ju87 Stuka proved to be particularly vulnerable to fighter attack and if a Gladiator could catch a Stuka as it pulled out of its dive-bombing attack, the Gladiator pilot would be hopeful of gaining an easy victory.

During the frenetic evacuation of the Dunkirk beaches, a small flight of Gladiators operated out of RAF Manston, where they would have been engaged in preventing Luftwaffe Stukas from attacking British troops trying to make good their escape.  Two Squadrons of Gladiators/Sea Gladiators were also engaged in local defence duties during the Battle of Britain.

Airfix A50177 Fokker E.II/BE2C Dogfight Doubles Gift Set

Set includes:

    8 Acrylic paints

    2 Brushes

    1 Poly Cement

The Fokker ‘Eindecker’ (meaning single wing) monoplane fighters were the first purpose designed Fokker E.II Eindecker Specification: German fighter aircraft of the First World War. Fitted for the first time with reliable ‘interrupter gear’ which enabled the single machine gun to fire through the blades of the propeller, the Eindecker was able to easily shoot down the slow and vulnerable Allied reconnaissance aircraft of the period.

Designed as a very stable and easy to fly aircraft suitable for reconnaissance, the RAF BE2 series were in service throughout the First World War. However, the stability and lack of speed that made them so suitable for photographing enemy trenches left them very vulnerable to attack from German fighters, especially from mid-1915, when the Fokker Eindecker came into service. Such were the losses that the B.E.2c gained the unfortunate nickname ‘Fokker Fodder’ and the period from mid-1915 to early 1916 became known as the ‘Fokker Scourge’.

Airfix A50176 Messerschmitt Bf109E-4 1:24 Gift Set

Designed by Professor Willy Messerschmitt, a director of the manufacturers Bayerische Flugzeugwerke AG, the prototype Bf109A first flew in 1935. The first major production variant, the Bf109E, was introduced into Luftwaffe service in December 1938. The E model was more powerful, better armed and armoured and by summer of 1940, over 500 were in service for the offensive against Great Britain. By this time, the 109E had already proved to be a competent, if not the world's best, fighter aircrafts in the skies above Poland, France and the Low Countries.


The 109E became a symbol of the Luftwaffe over England during the Battle of Britain and along with the Supermarine Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane, it became one the most famous fighter aircraft of all time. In the skies over Southern England in 1940, the 109E first had its shortcomings exposed. Its range was limited, with endurance over London being just five minutes. It was also unable to turn with either the Spitfire or the Hurricane, although its common armament was superior. It later served on the Eastern Front as well as over the Western Desert.

A super detailed 1:24 scale model of the legendary ground attack Hawker Typhoon MkIb. This fantastic model has been created using an advanced CAD design used on all new models.

Introduced in 1941, the Hawker Typhoon was designed to be the RAF's new ultimate interceptor fighter. It was hoped that the Typhoon, together with the Spitfire, would be a powerful and effective opponent of the Luftwaffe. However, it was not to be. Initially plagued by mechanical woes from the engine and suffering from a deficit in performance at high altitude, the Typhoon instead found fame as a low level attack aircraft, a role to which it was both well-suited and hugely effective.

While beautiful and fast, the Fury was also much more expensive to produce compared to its contemporaries, such as the Bristol Bulldog, resulting in it seeing only limited frontline service. By the outbreak of World War II, the Fury only served with the South African Air Force as a front line fighter, the RAF examples, had all been retired to second line duties.

In the event BEA only accepted six of these aircraft, having the remainder delivered as V953 Vanguards IIs fitted with improved Tyne R.Ty.lIs, The 'double-bubble' fuselage of the Vanguard allowed considerable freight to be carried below the passenger deck, and later on some Vanguards were converted for use with BEA and British Airways solely as freighters, this type was known as the Merchantman.

The Provost was a joy to fly, forgiving and easy to learn on, with many of the 1960s and 70s RAF front line pilots learning their trade on its un-swept wings. Its reliability and strength also added to its suitability as a jet trainer and the addition of wing tip tanks on the T3 also added to its endurance.
