Airfix - RAF Centenary Gift Set - 1:72 (A50181)

Airfix - RAF Centenary Gift Set - 1:72 (A50181)

 

On 1st April 1918, the amalgamation of the Royal Naval Air Service and the Royal Flying Corps into a single air fighting force saw the birth of the Royal Air Force and with it, the establishment of the world’s first independent air arm. Over the course of its illustrious history, perhaps no other aircraft type has represented the strength and capability of a modern RAF more effectively than the fighter, defending Britain from attack, whilst also captivating the imagination of the general public.

Airfix - Spitfire MkIa and Messerschmitt Bf110 Dogfight Doubles Gift Set - 1:72 (A50128)

 

The summer of 1940 saw an epic battle in the skies over Southern England. The RAF and Luftwaffe each fought to gain aerial supremacy over the other. The RAF fielded a formidable fighter force, the most famous machine in its arsenal being the Supermarine Spitfire.
The opposing Luftwaffe also fielded a potent single-engine fighter, but it was the twin-engined Messerschmitt Bf110 with its longer range that often engaged the RAF over England. Its longer range did not translate into fighting ability and it found itself under-powered and outclassed when compared to the nimble and potent Supermarine Spitfire. Many 110s were downed and the Spitfire proved itself to be the most capable fighter in the air during the Battle of Britain. Paint Scheme - Spitfire MkIa, 610 Squadron, No.13 Group, RAF Biggin Hill, July 1940 and Messerschmitt Bf110, C-2, 6 Staffel, I/Zestoregeschwader 76, Nothern France, 1940.

Airfix - Nakajima B5N2 'Kate' Grumman Wildcat F4F4 Dogfight Doubles Gift Set - 1:72 (A50169)

 

4th June 1942, over the skies of the Pacific Island Midway, the course of World War Two in the Pacific changed entirely. At 0630 hrs. Nakajima B5N “Kate” torpedo planes bombed the island installations, but only managed to inflict slight damage thanks to the U.S Marine Corps Grumman “Wildcat” fighters, which suffered disastrous losses in defence of the island’s facilities.

With the Hurricanes and Spitfires of the RAF being needed for home defence duties, the arrival of large numbers of American Curtiss Tomahawk fighters allowed older aircraft to be replaced in North Africa and the Middle East. Able to withstand significant battle damage, the Tomahawk was to see extensive service in these theatres and pose a considerable threat to their Luftwaffe and Regia Aeronautica adversaries.

The Bf 110C was the first version of the Bf 110 to be equipped with Daimler Benz engines. At the altitudes it had to operate in order to protect the bombers it would prove to be increasingly vulnerable to British and later American fighter aircraft due to its lack of manoeuvrability. The "D" version came with additional fuel tanks for increased range.

 The Royal Navy's primary torpedo bomber of the Second World War, the Swordfish, despite its obsolescence, proved to be an effective anti-submarine and torpedo bomber right up until the end of hostilities in 1945, going on in fact to outlive its intended replacement, the Albacore, in Royal Navy Service. Involved in such famous actions as the Taranto raid, the Bismark operation and the Channel Dash, the vulnerable but effective Swordfish firmly cemented its place in aviation folklore.Speed: 139mph;range: 546 miles; length: 10.87m; wingspan: 13.87m; armament: 2 x .303 MG, 1 x 1,670lb torpedo or 1,500lb bombs under fuselage and wings.

Used by every branch of the United States armed forces from before the Second World War to just after, the J2F Duck proved to be a rugged and dependable utility floatplane. Deployed in a variety of uses from air-sea rescue to anti-submarine patrols, the Duck was to be found from the cold wastes of Alaska to the heart of the South Pacific. Also exported, the Duck found widespread use in South America, where its strength and easy flight characteristics were much appreciated. This tremendous utility aircraft was flown by many countries well after the war ended.

Without question, the North American P-51D Mustang was one of the finest fighter aircraft of the Second World War and helped to secure air superiority for the Allies over occupied Europe. Able to escort USAAF bombers all the way to their targets deep into Germany, Mustang pilots would pounce on any Luftwaffe fighters sent to challenge them. Already a fighter aircraft of some promise, the combination of the North American P-51 Mustang airframe with the proven Rolls-Royce Merlin engine was a revelation and resulted in one of the finest fighter aircraft ever produced.

In 1948, the designation P-51 (P for pursuit) was changed to F-51 (F for fighter). At the start of the Korean War the Mustang once again proved its usefulness. With the availability of F-51Ds a substantial number were shipped via aircraft carriers to the combat zone for use initially by both the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) and USAAF. Rather than employing them as interceptors or "pure" fighters, the F-51 became a ground attack aircraft, fitted with rockets and bombs.

Airfix Nakajima B5N1 "Kate" - 1:72 (A04060)

Airfix - Nakajima B5N1 "Kate" - 1:72 (A04060)

 

When the Nakajima B5N1 torpedo bomber entered service in 1937, it was the most advanced aircraft of its type in the world. Known by its Allied reporting name of ‘Kate’, the B5N1 proved devastatingly effective in the early Pacific engagements of WWII.
Known as the Type 97 Carrier Attack Bomber, the B5N1 ‘Kate’ was the main Japanese naval attack aircraft of the war and was to take a heavy toll of Allied shipping. Even though it served throughout WWII, the ‘Kate’ was obsolete by the time newer American fighters entered the Pacific War but it was forced to continue fighting, as an effective replacement aircraft was not available to the Japanese Navy.

Originally entering RAF service as a heavy fighter/night fighter in August 1940, the Bristol Beaufighter proved to be an extremely versatile aircraft. Perhaps best known as a Coastal Command strike aircraft, Beaufighters were capable of launching savage attacks against all manner of Axis shipping targets.
Although still a Mk. X version of the Bristol Beaufighter, the later production aircraft of this series included a number of improvements and alterations which gave the aircraft a very different appearance. The most distinctive of these was the addition of a large dorsal fin fillet, which greatly increased the directional stability of the aircraft. There was also a ‘thimble’ nose A.1 Mk.VIII radar, which gave the aircraft much enhanced target acquisition capabilities.

Airfix - Fokker EII (late) Eindecker - 1:72 (A01086)

 

Significant in the history of aerial warfare, the Fokker Eindecker was the first purpose built German WWI fighter aircraft and the first to be fitted with gun synchronisation gear, which allowed the pilot to shoot through the arc of the propeller and in his line of sight. Once introduced, it took a withering toll of Allied aircraft.
The technical developments incorporated in the design of the Fokker E Series of armed scouts, allowed German pilots to fire their guns along their line of sight and made attacking another aircraft much easier – significantly it gave them a much higher possibility of securing a victory. This proved to be a huge advantage for Luftstreitfrafte pilots and led to a period of air superiority for the Germans in the air battles over the Western Front.

The stable flight characteristics of the government designed Royal Aircraft Factory BE2c made it an ideal choice for use as a home defence night fighter aircraft.  It famously claimed the destruction of the first German Airship over Britain on 3rd September 1916, earning pilot Lt. William Leefe Robinson a Victoria Cross.
At a time when obtaining the latest battlefield information was the main focus of aviation activity over the Western Front, the Royal Aircraft Factory BE2c was designed to enable its crew to obtain valuable reconnaissance information as effectively as possible.  With extremely docile handling characteristics, the aircraft was designed to fly straight and level, with minimal input from the pilot.

Without doubt, the Supermarine Spitfire was one of the most important aircraft of WWII, with more being produced that any other British aircraft type – it was also in production throughout the war. The Mk.V version of the Spitfire was produced in greater numbers than any other mark and gave the RAF a combat advantage throughout most of 1941.
Entering service with No.92 Squadron at Biggin Hill, the Spitfire Va was powered by the new Merlin 45 engine and incorporated the ‘a’ wing, which retained the eight machine gun armament of earlier machines. Pitted against the Messerschmitt Bf 109F, the Spitfire Va proved to be superior at higher altitudes and was generally more heavily armed. As the most produced version, the Spitfire mark V saw significant development during its service career.

At a time when the Royal Navy were desperately in need of an effective single engine fighter, the new American F4F Wildcat was seen as the ideal solution and was immediately pressed into service.  Known as the Martlet in Fleet Air Arm service, this diminutive aircraft was used operationally right through to the end of the war in Europe.
The Fleet Air Arm introduced the American produced F-4F Martlet (Wildcat) to combat in WWII a full year before the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor.  One of the most distinctive features of this diminutive fighter was the narrow track undercarriage, which had to be manually deployed by the pilot.  With a crank handle placed on the right hand side of the cockpit, the pilot would have to switch to holding the control column in his left hand and crank the retraction handle thirty times with his right hand, in the seconds immediately following take off!.

The Bristol Blenheim was originally conceived as a privately funded high-speed civilian aircraft, intended to wrestle the record for the fastest civilian aircraft in Europe away from the Germans.  It achieved this with ease and immediately attracted the attention of the RAF – at the outbreak of WWII, the Blenheim was available in more numbers than any other RAF aircraft.
Before the outbreak of WWII, the RAF were in need of a long range, heavy fighter and to fulfil this role, some 200 Blenheim Mk.I medium bombers were converted to ‘F – Fighter’ standard.  The main differences included the addition of a ventral gun pack of four .303 in machine guns attached under the belly of the aircraft and airborne interceptor radar equipment for night fighter variants.  Most aircraft were quickly relegated to night fighter duties, following the heavy losses suffered by aircraft used in daytime fighter operations.

During the Second World War the Boeing B-17 became a synonym for the heavily armed strategic bomber. The Boeing B-17F was also the first Flying Fortress to be manufactured using mass production techniques. The most famous aircraft in this series was a B-17F which was delivered on 15th July 1942 and entered service with the 324th Bomber Squadron in England. Her crew named her the "Memphis Belle" after the girl-friend of her pilot, Lt. Robert K. Morgan. She became famous due to the fact that she was officially recognised as the first U.S. Army Air Force bomber to survive 25 missions in Europe and subsequently became the star of a propaganda film made in Hollywood.

The B-17 Flying Fortress is the best-known American bomber of World War II. Heavy losses in 1943, when a total of 120 bombers was shot down, lead to the conclusion that previous B-17 versions carried insufficient defensive armament. As a consequence, the front lower nose of the B-17G was equipped with a turret carrying two 12,7 mm machine guns, providing an effective defense against the feared frontal attacks. Simultaneously, supplementary gun positions were added to the fuselage sides.

Popularly known by the nickname Wimpey , the Wellington was the most successful RAF twin-engine bomber of the Second World War. They bore the brunt of night missions, particularly during the initial phase of the war but due to increasing losses were replaced by the more powerful four-engined bombers from October 1943 onwards. More than 400 Wellington Mk.II bombers were fitted with the more powerful Merlin engine. A total of 21 Squadrons were equipped with the Wellington nearly 600 participated in the big raid on Cologne.

Britain’s bomber force at the beginning of the Second World War only consisted of around 300 aircraft and was made up of both light and medium bomber squadrons. The most capable medium bomber of the day was the twin-engined Vickers Wellington, which first flew 1936 and entered RAF service with No.99 Squadron at Mildenhall in October 1938. The production aircraft bore little resemblance to the prototype aircraft and compared to contemporary medium bombers already in service, the Wellington appeared to be much more advanced in design and an aircraft to be feared by any potential enemy. Its sleek monoplane design and heavy defensive armament placed the new Wellington as one of the most advanced and capable medium bombers in the world.

Airfix - Armstrong Whitworth Whitley Mk.VII - 1:72 (A09009)

Airfix - Armstrong Whitworth Whitley Mk.VII - 1:72 (A09009)

 

Perhaps not the most famous RAF aircraft of WWII, the Whitley was one of three British medium bombers in service at the outbreak of the Second World War and although it was withdrawn from front line bombing duties following the introduction of heavier, four-engined bombers, it was to see service right through to the end of the war.
Certainly displaying design characteristics of aeroplanes from a previous era, many enthusiasts would probably describe the Whitley as being an ungainly, somewhat ugly aircraft, but it certainly is a case of beauty being in the eye of the beholder. The new Airfix kit is a magnificent scale representation of this important RAF aircraft and seems certain to bring the Whitley to the attention of many more enthusiasts.

Without doubt, the definitive version of the Flying Fortress was the B-17G and this last mass-produced version of the aircraft was manufactured in more numbers than all previous versions combined – the B-17G was a magnificent fighting aeroplane. Addressing all the shortcomings of the previous combat variants, the B-17G incorporated a number of significant improvements, specifically around the placement and upgrading of defensive armament. The combat experiences of crews flying the earlier versions of the B-17 were crucial in producing this definitive US heavy bomber.

Airfix - Heinkel He III H-6 - 1:72 (A07007)

 

Arguably the most effective version of the He III series and certainly the one that was built in most numbers, the Heinkel He III ‘H’ attempted to address some of the shortcomings of the earlier models and upgrade the performance of this widely used aircraft. Although German ministers thought that they were being clever in classifying the original He IIIs as airliners, the design parameters that had to be adhered to, in order to satisfy this deception, dictated that the bomb carrying capabilities of Luftwaffe aircraft was woefully inadequate. In actual fact, the aircraft was capable of carrying more bombs than its weapons bay could hold.

The Bristol Blenheim light bomber was one of the most important aircraft available to the RAF at the start of WWII and more Squadrons than any other aircraft. The Mk.IV introduced a lengthened nose to replace the cramped bomb aimers position in earlier models, uprated engines and greater defensive firepower. These light bombers mounted some of the first RAF bombing raids against German targets in early 1940 and went on to see extensive service in many theatres of operation.

Under the lend lease programme large scale deliveries of C-47s were made to the UK, with nearly 2,000 Dakotas being delivered, the first entering service with the RAF in India in 1942. The delivery of large numbers of Dakota IIIs revitalised the RAF’s transport capacity, which until then had been based around a number of obsolete bombers and general purpose aircraft, which were poorly adapted for the role. Dakotas served in every theatre of the war, most notably in Burma and also during the D-Day landings and the airborne assault on Arnhem in 1944.

The Mk XIX was the last and most successful photographic reconnaissance variant of the Spitfire. It combined features of the Mk XI with the Griffon engine of the Mk XIV.

After the first 25 (type 389s) were produced, later aircraft were also fitted with the pressurised cabin of the MkX and the fuel capacity was increased to 256 gallons, three-and-a-half times that of the original Spitfire. The first MkXIXs entered service in May 1944, and, by the end of the war, the type had virtually replaced the earlier Mk XI. A total of 225 were built with production ceasing in early 1946.

Arguably one of the most distinctive aircraft of WWII, the Ju87B Stuka was a highly effective dive and attack bomber, capable of delivering precision bombing attacks, in support of the Germans ‘Lightning War’ concept. It also specifically employed the use of screaming sirens, designed to spread fear and panic amongst the enemy, both military and civilian.

Perhaps the most feared exponent of the Blitzkrieg phenomenon was the dreaded Junkers Ju-87 Stuka, which could quite easily be described as the first modern ‘terror weapon’. Designed specifically to instil fear and confusion into both enemy troops and the population in general, the Stuka was a highly effective, precision dive-bomber, which was used as a flying propaganda machine for the Wehrmacht.

The Stuka also saw service with the air forces of Italy, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary, as well as remaining in Luftwaffe service throughout WWII.

Airfix - Hawker Fury 1:48 (A04103)

 

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 pre-monoplane era. Whilst beautiful as well as fast, it proved to be more expensive than the likes of the Bristol Bulldog and so eventually only served in the South African Air Force’s front line. The aircraft depicted on the box can be seen flying for the Historic Aircraft Collection Ltd. IWM Duxford.

Airfix - Supermarine Spitfire MkVb - 1:48 (A05125)

Airfix - Supermarine Spitfire MkVb - 1:48 (A05125)

 

The MkVb was the first Spitfire fitted with drop tanks to increase range and many were equipped with bombs. Until the end of the Battle of Britain in 1940, all Spitfires were used for defence of the UK. In an overseas role it had a dust filter modification to protect the engine. The new Mk V outclassed the Messerschmitt 109E.

Airfix - Curtiss P-40B Warhawk - 1:48 (A05130)

 

During the early stages of WWII, the American built Curtiss P-40B proved to be one of the most important fighter aircraft available to Allied Air Forces. Flying with the RAF in North Africa and the American Volunteer Group in China, the Allison V-1710-33 powered P-40B was to became one of the most distinctive fighters of the entire war, wearing their fearsome shark-mouth artwork.

Airfix - Boulton Paul Defiant Mk1 - 1:48 (A05128)

Airfix - Boulton Paul Defiant Mk1 - 1:48 (A05128)

 

With its powered dorsal mounted turret, the Boulton Paul Defiant was one of the most interesting fighter aircraft to see service during the Second World War. Originally designed to attack massed formations of enemy bombers, the additional weight of the turret and lack of forward firing defensive armament quickly dictated that the Defiant was better suited to night fighter operations. Although it is generally accepted that the Boulton Paul Defiant proved to be a failure as a day fighter, it did enjoy some early successes in combat with the Luftwaffe. During operations to cover the evacuation of the Dunkirk beaches, RAF Defiants claimed an impressive 37 Luftwaffe aircraft destroyed, without suffering any losses of their own.

Airfix - Supermarine Walrus 'Silver Wings' - 1:48 (A09187)

 

 The reputation of the Supermarine company was built on their ability to design and produce effective and reliable marine and amphibious aircraft for civilian and military use. The Walrus was a perfect example of their expertise and underlined the strength of the aircraft by performing a loop at the 1933 Hendon Air Pageant, to the astonishment of the massed ranks of spectators.

Airfix - Hawker Sea Fury FB.II - 1:48 (A06105)

 

One of the most capable piston engined fighter aircraft ever produced and the last to enter service with Britain’s Fleet Air Arm, the Hawker Sea Fury represented the pinnacle of piston engined fighter design. Introduced after the end of the Second World War, the Sea Fury would see combat against some of the early jet fighters during the Korean War, where it would perform extremely well.

Airfix - North American P51-D Mustang - 1:48 (A05131)

 

Britain’s most pressing need was for aircraft and in 1940, the British Purchasing Commission approached US aircraft manufacturer North American Aviation, to produce licence-built Curtiss P-40 fighters for the RAF. Slightly indignant at the prospect, North American officials proposed to build a totally new aircraft for the Royal Air Force, which would be superior to the P-40 and more suitable for their needs. So impressive was their pitch, the British agreed to their proposal and signed a contract for the new aircraft.

Airfix - Boulton Paul Defiant NF.1 - 1:48 (A05132)

 

Quickly outclassed as a day fighter during the Battle of Britain, the Boulton Paul Defiant would be tasked with protecting Britain from night bombing raids by the Luftwaffe. Not trained to fight at night, Defiant crews would have to develop interception techniques as they fought, but found the aircraft much more suited to this nocturnal fighting environment.

Airfix - Curtiss Tomahawk MK.IIB - 1:48 (A05133)

 

The first Curtiss Tomahawk fighters to arrive in Britain during WWII operated in the tactical reconnaissance role and were deemed unsuitable for fighter sweeps into German occupied Europe. Later models incorporated a number of improvements and saw extensive service with the Western Desert Air Force, driving the Italians out of Libya and taking on the newly arrived Messerschmitts of the Luftwaffe.

Airfix - North American F51D Mustang - 1:48 (A05136)

 

 As arguably the finest fighter aircraft of WWII, the Mustang went on to be selected as the USAF primary piston engined fighter after the war, with all other types relegated to secondary roles, or withdrawn from service. The re-designation of USAF aircraft in 1948 saw the P for Pursuit change to F for Fighter, resulting in the Mustang becoming a North American F-51D.

Airfix - North American Mustang Mk.IV - 1:48 (A05137)

(Pre-Order due November 2018)

As the North American Mustang was developed as a direct result of a British Air Ministry requirement, it is somehow fitting that the RAF and Commonwealth air forces used the aircraft extensively during WWII. The British designation for the later P-51D version was Mustang IV, with the Dallas built P-51K, which used a different Aeroproducts propeller, referred to as the Mustang IVa.

Airfix - Bristol Blenheim Mk.IF - 1:48 (A09186)

(Pre-Order due October 2018)

Arguably one of the most significant aircraft of the inter war years, the Bristol Blenheim can trace its lineage back to a privately funded venture (Lord Rothermere, owner of the Daily Mail) and a determination to place Britain at the head of the aviation world. In widespread service with the Royal Air Force at the start of WWII, the Bristol Blenheim and its brave crews would be asked to shoulder a heavy burden in the months that followed, with a Blenheim mounting Britain’s first sortie of the war just 63 minutes after war was declared against Germany.

Airfix - De Havilland Mosquito FBVI - 1:24 (A25001A)

Airfix - De Havilland Mosquito FBVI - 1:24 (A25001A)

 

June, 1942. The Mosquito FB MkVI first takes to the skies. Powered by two Merlin engines driving three-bladed de Havilland hydromatic propellers, the Mosquito FB Mk VI, which was almost entirely made of wood, was incredibly fast and incredibly manoeuvrable, with top speeds reaching 384 mph! Due to its speed and manoeuvrability, the FB MkVI was used by Coastal Command as an anti-shipping bomber towards the end of the war. They unleashed deadly attacks on coastal traffic and U-boats – all of which were heavily laden with anti-aircraft guns. Featuring regularly in film, TV and literature the De Havilland Mosquito FB Mk VI remains a classic and an iconic aircraft to add to your collection.

One of the most potent versions of the famous De Havilland Mosquito the FBVI matched the high speed bombing capability of the early glass-nosed bomber variants with the cannon and machine gun punch of the fighters, creating a fast and efficient fighter bomber. Operating across Europe and the Far East, the Mosquito came to be highly respected by its adversaries.
