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.

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.

Skill: 1

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.

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.

After a phenomenal response to the 2013 ‘Design a Hawk' competition conducted on behalf of the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, and after long scrutiny, the winning design was selected by a panel of judges made up from the RAFBF and Airfix.

The winning design created by 14-year-old Heather Morien from Cramlington, was liked by the judges because of its vibrant and fun use of the RAFBF colours. The judges commented that there were so many excellent entries that selecting a winner was particularly difficult, and they’d like to thank everyone for taking part.

For her brilliantly colourful design Heather received a mounted version of her model.

Airfix A19002 Hawker Typhoon Mk1B

1:24 Scale. Skill: 4. Finished Size (mm): L404 x W528. Number of Parts: 509.

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.

Airfix A04103 Hawker Fury

Bearing the distinction of being the first RAF fighter to exceed 200mph in level flight, the Hawker Fury was one of the most capable fighters of the era until surpassed, first by the Gloster Gladiator and then by the monoplane Hawker Hurricane and Supermarine Spitfire.


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.
