Airfix - Supermarine Spitfire Mk1a / Messerchmitt Bf109E-4 Gift Set - 1:72 (A50135)

 

After the fall of France in 1940, the two great air arms of the day, Great Britain’s RAF and Germany’s Luftwaffe, faced each other in large numbers for the first time. The spearhead of the Luftwaffe was the Messerschmitt Bf109E. A formidable fighting machine, it had proven itself to be world class throughout its previous campaigns. However, over southern England in the summer of 1940, it faced a new set of challenges. The most serious test for the Luftwaffe pilots was the widespread use of the RAF’s finest fighter, the Supermarine Spitfire. More manoeuvrable than the 109E, the Spitfire was the finest fighter of its day. This set contains two aircraft flown by aces, Helmut Wick and John Dundas. Neither survived their fateful engagement on 28th November 1940.

As the Allies forced their way across Western Europe in 1944 getting ever closer to Germany itself, the defending forces of the Luftwaffe put up fierce resistance using such fighters as the Focke Wulf Fw190A-8. These often came in contact with the formidable Hawker Typhoon, who were undertaking ground attacks.

At the height of the summer of 1940, the fate of the free world rested upon the skill and courage of just a few young pilots as the RAF stood alone against the might of the as yet undefeated German Luftwaffe. In the air above southern England, Supermarine Spitfires and Hawker Hurricanes fought vicious dogfights with the fighters and bombers of the enemy.

Airfix - Fokker EIII/BE2C Dog Fight Doubles Gift Set - 1:72 (A50177)

Airfix - Fokker EIII/BE2C Dog Fight Doubles Gift Set - 1:72 (A50177)

 

GB 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 - JU87 / Gloster Gladiator Dog Fight Double Gift Set - 1:72 (A50179)

Airfix - JU87 / Gloster Gladiator Dog Fight Double Gift Set - 1:72 (A50179)

 

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.

Airfix - Pearl Harbor - 75th Anniversary Gift Set - 1:72 (A50180)

Airfix - Pearl Harbor - 75th Anniversary Gift Set - 1:72 (A50180)

 

n one of the most infamous raids of WWII, the Imperial Japanese Navy launched a surprise strike attack on the US Naval base at Pearl Harbor on 7th December 1941. Launching from six aircraft carriers in two attack waves, over four hundred strike and fighter aircraft targeted the US Pacific Fleet moored at Pearl Harbour and the airfields at Ford Island, Hickam Field, Bellows Field and Wheeler Field. Despite inflicting significant damage, America would resolve to avenge this attack and destroy the Japanese war machine.
As the Japanese launched their surprise attack against US Forces at Pearl Harbor, most service personnel on the ground were oblivious to the perilous position they were in. As the first wave of Japanese fighters swept in, panic and confusion set in and most attempted to find whatever cover they could. Determined to fight back many servicemen manned their guns and did what they could to deter the attack. At Haleiwa airfield, Lt. Kenneth Taylor and Lt. George Welch climbed into the cockpits of their P-40 fighters and took off under a hail of enemy machine gunfire, before launching into a furious defence of their airfield.

Airfix - Spitfire F22 - 1:72 (A02033)

 

The F22 Spitfire was about as sophisticated as the post-war Spitfires were to get. It differed from the final variant, the Mk22, in only minor respects, but used the same massive Griffon engine delivering well over 2,200hp and which dictated the enlarged tail control surfaces introduced with the Mk 21. The redesigned wing was a distinctive feature of the type which performed well until eventually being outclassed by the first jet fighters.

In the Battle of Britain, the Bf 109 was at a disadvantage due to its short range. During the Battle, after escorting bombers from their bases in northern France, The Netherlands and Germany, the Messerschmitt had only around 15 minutes of fuel for combat over southern England before having to turn back. However in the hands of experienced pilots this agile fighter proved to be a formidable weapon gaining the full respect of RAF pilots.

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. In fact, the Swordfish went on to outlive its intended replacement, the Albacore, in Royal Navy Service.

Involved in such famous actions as the Taranto raid, the Bismarck operation and the Channel Dash, the vulnerable but effective Swordfish firmly cemented its place in aviation folklore. The Swordfish remained operational until the end of the war, gaining the distinction of being the last biplane to see active service. The Airfix kit contains a folding wing option.

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.

Powered by a radial engine, the Fw190 had ample power, and by the time the A-8 version had been developed was still keeping up with the development of the Allied fighters, particularly at high altitudes. It was liked by Luftwaffe pilots as much as the Messerschmitt Bf109.

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.

Airfix - Bristol Beaufighter Mk.X Late - 1:72 (A05043)

Airfix - Bristol Beaufighter Mk.X Late - 1:72 (A05043)

 

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!.

Airfix - Bristol Blenheim MK1f - 1:72 (A04059)

 

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.

The Halifax was one of the most famous Royal Air Force bombers of the 2nd World War II. Over 6170 aircraft of all variants were built. It was mainly used by Bomber Command on bombing missions over Europe. Other Halifax's were used to drop secret agent's into enemy territory as well as undertaking long distance maritime missions over the Atlantic and the North Sea, during which they sank a total of 43 enemy ships. Their active service began in 1941 with the RAF's Bomber Command as the second large 4 engine bomber. Although many problems were encountered during its development and always being overshadowed by the Lancaster, the Halifax continued to become the most famous Allied bomber of the war.

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.

The superb amphibious ‘Cat’ entered service in 1939 and was immediately successful in its various roles. The type from 209 squadron spotted the Bismarck during the famous action in the Denmark Strait in 1941. Weaknesses such as a slow flying speed, lack of crew armour and no self-sealing tanks, led to more suitable roles for the “Cat”. Coinciding with the development of effective radar, and Japanese reliance on night transport led to the development of the “Black Cat Squadrons.”

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-20 - 1:72 (A05021)

 

The Heinkel He-111 was the mainstay of the German offensive against Great Britain during the “Battle of Britain”. It was produced in far larger quantities than the Do-17 series and remained in service throughout the war. The Heinkel He-111 was first displayed in January 1936, not as a bomber, but in the guise of a civil airliner. In 1937 the civil disguise of the He-111 was abandoned; He-111 B-1s were sent to the Condor Legion fighting in the Spanish Civil war. The success of the He-111 in Spain played a large part in shaping German bombing policy, which later proved wrong when the lightly armed bombers suffered heavy losses over Britain when opposed by modern and determined fighters.

New for 2015, using our new 3D scanning technology, comes the amazing 1:72 Heinkel HEIII P2! Responsible for more damage from strategic bombing than any other aircraft during the Battle of Britain, this super high detailed aircraft has been designed with information never before used in Airfix model design and has produced fantastic results! “A wolf in sheep’s clothing”, this formidably fast medium bomber was at first masqueraded by the Luftwaffe as a commercial aircraft, when the intention was in fact for it to be converted into the enemy’s primary bomber during early stages of World War Two.

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.

This will be a highly detailed model and will include a number of significant new parts:
Junkers Jumo 211 engines, Large ‘paddle’ propellers, External weapons hard points, One 1000kg ‘Hermann’ bomb, Two LT F5b air launch torpedoes, Improved defensive gondola, under the fuselage (several new parts),New weapons and gun positions

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.

Although often overshadowed by the Supermarine Spitfire, the Hawker Hurricane was in fact the RAF's most vital fighter during the early years of the Second World War. Many of these tough, partly fabric monoplane fighters went with the British Expeditionary Forces to France in early 1940, and once the Blitzkrieg began they put in a valiant defense against the numerically superior Luftwaffe.

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.

Capable of performing precision dive bombing attacks against any Allied vessel, the Stuka took a heavy toll of shipping in the English Channel, North Africa and in the Mediterranean. The Stuka also saw service with the air forces of Italy, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary, as well as remaining in Luftwaffe service throughout WWII.

The new Mk V outclassed the Messerschmitt 109E.

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)

 

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.

(Pre-Order due October 2017)

It would be difficult to think of an aircraft design so markedly different to the sleek and elegant Spitfire, but the Supermarine Walrus amphibious biplane was from the hand of the same designer. Despite its somewhat ungainly appearance, the Walrus proved to be an incredibly effective aircraft and flexible enough to take on a number of roles in some of the most demanding operating environments.

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.

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 World War 2 Aircraft (1930 - 1950) - 1:24 Scale


Airfix - Supermarine Spitfire MklA - 1:24 (A12001A)

Airfix - Supermarine Spitfire MklA- 1:24 (A12001A)

The immortal Spitfire was the most famous fighter of the Second World War and one of the greatest warplanes of all time. When the Battle of Britain began in the summer of 1940 there were nineteen squadrons of Spits in action. The two Spitfires for which markings are supplied represent different moments of the battle as it raged from the hot summer days into the cold winter of 1940.

The first is the iconic DW-K of No.610 'County of Chester' Squadron, with its large code letters and oversized roundels that instantly evoke the Battle of Britain. Based at Biggin Hill, squadron code DW-K was initially believed to be displayed on the aircraft P9495 (included in this kit) which joined the squadron in June 1940, and was eventually damaged in a dogfight with a Messerchimitt 109 in August 1940, these code were then transferred to another Spitfire.

The other aircraft is the X4561, squadron code QJ-B of No.92 Squadron based at Manston, Kent in December 1940 and reflects the changes to operational camouflage at the time with the underside of the port wing being painted black as a recognistion aid.

This fabulous model has a detailed cockpit, Merlin engine, gun ports and other extensive detail.

Airfix - Messerschmitt Bf109E-4/E-3 - 1:24 (A12002A)

 

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 of the most famous fighter aircraft of all time.
In 1940, the short comings of the Bf109E were first exposed in the skies over southern England, its range was limited with the endurance over London being just five minutes. The Messerschmitt was unable to manoeuvre a turn with either the Spitfire or Hurricane, although it had superior cannon armament compared to Great Britain. This aircraft later served on the Eastern Front as well as over the Western Desert.
Maximum Speed: 354mph, Range: 412 miles at 250mph cruising speed, Wingspan: 9.85m, Height: 2.58m (over nose tail on ground)

Airfix - Hawker Hurricane Mk1 1:24 (A14002A)

Airfix - Hawker Hurricane Mk1 - 1:24 (A14002A)

 

The Hawker Hurricane was the most numerous fighter in service with the RAF at the start of the Battle of Britain. The Hawker went on to prove itself a vital effective fighter aircraft on all fronts of the Second World War. It came to be regarded as a rugged and reliable ground attack machine, but it was undoubtedly the service as a defensive fighter during the Battle of Britain that forged its reputation as on of the wars greatest fighters.

Entering service with 111 Sqaudron in December 1937, the original fabric wings made way for metal ones by 1939. During the Battle of Britain, the average strength of the fighter command was 1,326 Hurricanes compared with 957 Spitfires. It was the Hurricane that Flt. Lt. Nicholson gained the fighter commands' only Victoria Cross of the war, downing an enemy Messerschmit Bf110, while his own aircraft was engulfed in flames.

After the Battle of Britain, the Hurricane went on to serve in the Far East, as well as the Desert and Eastern Front.

Airfix - Junkers Ju87B-2 'Stuka' - 1:24 (A18002A)

 

The Junker Ju87 'Stuka' became one of the most infamous aircrafts of World War II. It gained its' fame during the opening actions of the Second World War, as well as in the Spanish Civil War.
During the opening phases of World War II, the 'Stuka' achieved noteriety through its great accuracy, as well as the psychological effect of the 'trumpet' device on the undercarriage legs, this device made a wailing noise as the aircraft dived.
However, by the time of the Battle of Britain, the 'Stuka' was hopelessly outclassed when faced with effective fighter opposition. The Hurricanes and Spitfires of the RAF were able to decimate the hapless and vunerable 'Stukas' to such an extent, they were withdrawn from the Battle.
In the opening movements of the campaign on the Eastern Front and again in the Western Desert, the 'Stuka' proved that in a clear sky it was a devastatingly effective weapon, but when faced with fighter opposition it was a death trap for the crews.

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.
