Guillows Douglas DC-3

Considered to be the single most important aircraft in the history of air transportation, the DC-3 first flew in 1935. Douglas Aircraft built it as a replacement for the smaller DC-2. Its 180 MPH cruising speed made it the fastest of its day, and carried 11 more passengers than the Boeing 247. By 1938, 80 percent of all American commercial airline traffic was carried on DC-3’s. During World War 2, the military conversion of the DC-3, the C-47 was used by the thousands in every theatre of the war. After the war, many of the surplus C-47’s were converted back to civilian service.

Airfix Bedford QLT and Bedford QLD Trucks 1:76

With over 52,000 vehicles built between 1941 and 1945, the Bedford QL 3-ton truck was one of the most numerous British vehicles during the Second World War. Designed as either a general duties truck or troop transport, the QL was powered by a 3.5 litre, 6-cylinder petrol engine producing 72bhp, giving a governed top speed of 38mph. Thanks to its high ground clearance, cross-country tyres and a 2-speed, 4-wheel-drive transfer box located in the centre of the chassis (giving 8 forward gear ratios), the QL had excellent cross country mobility. A large number are still in use by enthusiasts.

Airfix Messerschmit Bf110C

Championed by Hermann Goering, the Messerschmitt Bf 110 Destroyer, (or Heavy Fighter) concept was certainly sound in theory, giving these slightly larger aircraft much greater range and devastating firepower. Unfortunately, the increase in size and weight left the Destroyers vulnerable to the more manoeuvrable single engined fighters of the RAF.

Airfix Hawker Siddeley Harrier AV-8A 1:72

The Harrier had been designed from the beginning to attract export sales. The first of these was the US Marine Corps who began to take an interest around 1969 when the jet was first introduced into the RAF service. Hawker Siddeley made some modifications to the aircraft and in 1971 the AV-8A Harrier entered service with the USMC as a close support aircraft. Operating from amphibious assault ships the Harrier's role was to augment that of the larger US Navy warplanes by providing troops on the battle field with close air support at a moments notice in a similar way to that provided by helicopters but with heavier weapons. Later, starting in 1979, the AV-8As were upgraded to AV-8C specification. by this time their effectiveness had been proven in many practice exercises and their superb maneuverability demonstrated in mock dog-fights with F4 Phantom fighters. Today the Marine Corps continues to operate the AV-8B Harrier II. Please Note: Paints for the Pilot are 61, 63 & 150 - these are shown in the paint lists for both decal schemes.

Airifx Brestol Blenheim Mk.IF

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.

Airfix Fairey Swordfish Mk.I 1:72

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.

Airfix De Havilland Comet 4B

The second World War had seriously affected Great Britain’s abilities to proceed with airliner development, and it was realised that the USA would have virtual domination in this field unless steps were taken to catch up. The Brabazon Committee was formed in 1943 to look into Britain’s post war aviation prospects, and a series of recommendations was issued in 1944; one of these was to produce an advanced turbojet powered airliner for BOAC.

Airfix Nakajima B5N2 'Kate' 1:72

The Nakajima B5N2 'Kate' was the most numerous Japanese torpedo bomber of the Second World War and while primarily operated as a torpedo bomber from carriers, it also saw service as a land based bomber. A single engine monoplane, it was defended by just one rearward firing machine gun, operated by the radio operator, and its relatively low speed left it vulnerable to enemy fighters, perfoming well at Pearl Harbour and going on to have success at the Battle of the Coral Sea and Midway.
