1/72 Westland Whirlwind Helicopter HAS.22
Product Info As helicopter technology continued to advance apace following the end of the Second World War, the operational flexibility offered by rotary powered aircraft resulted in a race to develop a machine with the power and range to carry both troops and supplies efficiently. The breakthrough came with the introduction of the US Sikorski H-19 Chickasaw, an aircraft which was the envy of the world, with the British military being particularly keen admirers. Having successfully evaluated a number of aircraft, a licence agreement was signed to allow Westland Aircraft based at Yeovil to produce the helicopter for British service. Named the Whirlwind, the first British build prototype flew in August 1953, with the type going on to enter Royal Navy service in July 1954. What's Inside sprues & decals
1/72 Heinkel He111 P-2
First flying in 1935 when Germany was banned from building bombers under the Treaty of Versailles, the Heinkel He111 was at first disguised as a fast transport plane. However its real purpose soon became clear when it was used as a bomber during the Spanish Civil War. The early variants proved to be capable fast bombers with only small numbers being lost to enemy action. By the start of the Second World War the He111 had undergone some major changes, resulting in the P model. The engines were now more powerful Daimler Benz DB601 units, and there was an enlarged glass nose section housing the majority of the crew. This afforded them excellent visibility but made them very vulnerable.During the Battle of Britain the P variant was being phased out, but it continued to serve in some numbers. Against the modern RAF fighters the He111 now suffered from a lack of speed and defensive armament. Before being switched to night duties the He111 formed the backbone of the Luftwaffe's bomber force, but did suffer some heavy casualties.
1/72 English Electric Lightning F.2A
The F2 introduced in 1962 was much modified in 1968 producing the F2A with square cut fin, kinked leading edges and enlarged ventral tank which gave an enhanced combat air patrol time of some 2 hours.
1/72 Commonwealth CA-13 Boomerang
An aircraft which has often been described as 'Australia's panic fighter', the decision to build the indigenous Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation Boomerang came in the wake of continued Japanese aggression in the Pacific and the need to ensure a continuous future supply of new fighters for the RAAF. By using many sections and components from existing aircraft types under construction in Australia, the first Boomerang was produced just sixteen weeks after the original design decision was made and 250 of these diminutive fighters would eventually be produced. Possessing excellent low altitude performance, the Boomerang would often be used to mark targets for ground attack Corsairs during the latter stages of WWII, a role which earned the distinctive little aircraft the nickname 'Smoky Joe'.

Avro Lancaster B.III (75th Anniversary) The Dambusters 1:72
While the Lancaster saw the vast majority of its service as a high altitude night bomber attacking strategic targets deep within Germany, notably its involvement in the battles of the Ruhr, Hamburg and Berlin, it was a daring low-level raid that gave the Lancaster arguably its finest hour. The Dambusters raid, as it has since become known, was one the most famous operations of the war. Led by Wing Commander Guy Gibson, the 19 specially modified Lancaster bombers attacked the Mohne, Eder, Sorpe and Ennepe dams, with the Mohne and Eder dams being breached. This caused widespread destruction to both the German war effort and to food production. The dams were breached using a special type of bomb, the Upkeep mine, or 'bouncing bomb'. This was rotated before being dropped so that it skipped along the surface before impacting against the dam, sinking and exploding, thus rupturing the dam. This avoided the need for a high altitude raid and avoided the torpedo nets. The attack was a partial success but greatly improved the morale of the Allies and the British public.
1:72 Scale - North American F-51D Mustang
The North American P-51 Mustang is regarded by many as one of the most iconic American fighters of the Second World War. Designed to fulfil an RAF specification, the Mustang was transformed once the Rolls Royce Merlin engine was installed. The P-51D model's long range and excellent firepower made it a superb escort fighter, able to protect the bombers all the way to Berlin and back. The P-51 is recorded as being the top scoring Allied fighter of the war with 4,950 enemy aircraft destroyed. In 1948 the type designation for the Mustang changed to F-51D and it continued in USAF and RAAF service as a ground attack aircraft through the Korean War.
1/72 V-22A OSPREY
Il progetto dell’innovativo Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey venne impostato durante gli anni’80 ma solo dopo un processo di sviluppo lungo e complesso, durato oltre vent’anni, iniziò la distribuzione ai reparti operativi delle forze armate degli Stati Uniti. L’Osprey è un convertiplano dotato di due motori basculanti con grandi eliche tripala che lo rendono in grado di atterrare e decollare verticalmente come un elicottero e di avere prestazioni di volo e trasferimento analoghe a quelle di un aereo ad elica convenzionale. Grazie ai suoi due potenti motori Rolls-Royce T406-AD-400 da 6,150 CV riesce a superare in volo orizzontale i 500 Km/h. Il Corpo dei Marines degli Stati Uniti è l’utilizzatore che ne impiega il numero più elevato sfruttando la versatilità tattica e di trasporto del V-22 in particolare per le operazioni di supporto agli sbarchi. L’Osprey ha preso parte alla sue prime missioni operative in uno scenario di guerra in Iraq nel 2008.
1/72 Stirling Mk.III
NUOVE PARTI - INCLUDE VERSIONE PATHFINDER CON H2S RADAR - SUPER DECAL PER 5 VERSIONI - FOTOINCISO - FOGLIO ISTRUZIONI A COLORI FIGURA NON INCLUSA - CONTIENE 1 MODELLO Lo Short Stirling è stato il primo bombardiere pesante britannico ad entrare in servizio durante la seconda guerra mondiale. Il progetto dello Stirling si caratterizzava per l’ala alta, i quattro motori e la cabina sopraelevata rispetto alla fusoliera. La struttura del velivolo era interamente metallica. Altra caratteristica dello Stirling era il grande carrello di atterraggio. I primi Stirling Mk I andarono ad equipaggiare i reparti del Bomber Command della R.A.F. a partire dalla fine del 1940. La prima missione operativa, contro installazioni industriali a Rotterdam, venne realizzata nel 1941. Lo Stirling aveva la possibilità di trasportare un significativo carico offensivo di oltre 6.000 Kg di bombe ed era armato con 8 mitragliatrici da 7,7 mm per la difesa. La diretta evoluzione del Mk.I fu la versione Mk.III con nuovi motori Bristol Hercules XVI potenziati ed un migliore armamento difensivo.

1/72 Supermarine Spitfire F.22
Considered by many to be the ultimate Spitfire, the F Mk.22 shared only a very passing resemblance to its early Spitfire ancestors. Equipped with a more powerful Griffon engine as well as a larger tail unit and cut-down rear fuselage, the F Mk.22 was the most powerful Spitfire to see service, as well as the most capable. Serving in only small numbers and too late for the Second World War, the F Mk.22 was the penultimate land based variant of the classic Spitfire design.
