Type 97 Chi Ha Japanese Tank
£6.99
Pre Order

A01319V - Type 97 Chi Ha Japanese Tank

The Type 97 Medium, known as the Chi Ha, was the main battle tank of the Imperial Japanese Army during WWII. Entering service in 1937, the Chi Ha saw widespread service in China and the Pacific, but inadequate armour protection and the low velocity of its 57mm gun made it no match when it came up against Allied tanks.

A02014V - Aichi D3A1 'Val'

In the months which preceded the start of the Second World War, the Imperial Japanese Navy were arguably the best equipped force of their kind in the world, especially when it came to the carrier-borne aircraft they could call upon. In addition to the exceptional Mitsubishi Zero fighter, the Japanese Navy also possessed the Aichi D3A1 '˜Val'™ dive bomber, an extremely rugged aircraft which was ideally suited to the rigors of flight operations at sea and one which was agile enough to defend itself once it had delivered its deadly payload. With the capabilities of its aircraft coming as an unwelcome surprise to Allied military planners in the wake of the Pearl Harbor attack, the well trained crews of '˜Val'™ dive bomber units would take a heavy toll of Allied warships over the coming months, posting incredible bombing accuracy statistics which were approaching 90 percent hit rates. With around 129 Aichi D4A1'˜Val'™s'™ taking part in the two Pearl Harbor strike raids, many of the aircraft were sent to target the several American airfields on the Island of Oahu, using precision strikes to ensure as many US aircraft were destroyed before they could take to the air, thus minimising potential losses to the aircraft assigned to attack '˜Battleship Row'™. Unfortunately for Val crews, their period of dominance in the Pacific would only last a few short months, as increasingly accurate anti-aircraft fire and more capable Allied fighters soon relegated this once feared bomber to secondary duties and kamikaze missions.

Beagle Basset 206
£10.99

A02025V - Beagle Basset 206

The handsome Beagle B.206 Basset was a twin-engined light executive transport and military communications aircraft built by the Beagle Aircraft Company at their Shoreham base and held the potential of being a huge global success, but for a number of reasons, would only be built in relatively small numbers. With the aircraft's wide cabin capturing the attention of the RAF, the Basset entered a fly-off competition with the de Havilland Devon in March 1963 to assess which aircraft would be the successor to the venerable Avro Anson, with the Basset emerging victorious and attracting an initial order for 20 aircraft. In RAF service, the Beagle B.206R was designated Basset CC.1, with the first aircraft reaching RAF Communications Squadrons during May 1965.

Powered by two Rolls-Royce/Continental GIO-470 engines, these six cylinder, horizontally opposed powerplants gave the aircraft a maximum speed of around 220mph and a range of 1,650 miles, with the spacious cabin of the Basset able to carry up to eight people in some comfort. One of the interesting duties intended for the Basset in RAF service was the transportation of fully equipped V-Bomber crews between dispersal airfields around the UK. The Basset would also be used by the Queen's Flight and by both the Empire Test Pilots School and A&AEE at Boscombe Down.

A02029A - Messerschmitt Bf109G-6

About the Aircraft:

Over 12,000 of the 'Gustav' G-6 were built from 1943 to 1944 and were armed with two formidable 13mm machine guns, enabling the top Luftwaffe aces to record, in some cases, hundreds of 'kills'.

About the Model:

Every Airfix collection needs a strong and reliable aircraft to complete the set- and the G-6 does exactly that! With two livery scheme options to choose from as well as sprues and decals included, the G-6 will satisfy all your model making needs and give your Airfix range a well-derserved touch of style and colour!

A02029B - Messerschmitt Bf109G-6

One of the finest fighting aeroplanes in military history, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 series was developed continually throughout the Second World War, with the 'Gustav' being the last major variant and the one most heavily produced. 


Flown by many of the Luftwaffe's most proficient aces, the 109G was adapted to perform a variety of operational roles and was heavily deployed against the huge USAAF daylight bombing raids which were sent against targets deep into Europe.

Supermarine Spitfire F.22

A02033A - 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.

Hawker Typhoon Mk.IB
£11.99
In Stock

A02041A - Hawker Typhoon Mk.IB

About the Aircraft:

By 1943 the RAF needed a dedicated ground attack fighter, and the Typhoon was suited to the role. The powerful engine allowed the aircraft to carry a load of up to two 1,000lb (454kg) bombs. From September 1943, Typhoons could also be armed with four, eight or in some cases even 12 "60lb" RP-3 rockets. 

About the Model:

From its reliability and enging power to the two impressive livery schemes, the Typhoon has it all! Measuring 134mm and containing 74 pieces per kit, the Airfix Typhoon model will make a fantastic addition to any collection for model makers and military enthusiasts alike.

F-80C Shooting Star
£10.99

A02043V - F-80C Shooting Star

The development of the Shooting Star leant heavily on early jet technology supplied by the British, as the Americans were lagging behind both Britain and Germany regarding jet propulsion and the discovery of the Luftwaffe's Messerschmitt Me 262 highlighted the need for their own viable jet fighter. Initially developed around the British Halford H.1 engine taken from the de Havilland Vampire prototype, the project advanced under the strictest secrecy, with a team from 'Skunk Works' producing an airframe in an impressive 143 days. The Shooting Star showed great promise during testing, attaining a speed of 500mph in level flight, the first turbojet powered USAAF aircraft to do so.

Produced just too late to see combat during WWII, it is interesting to note that two pre-production Shooting Stars were sent to England during WWII for familiarisation purposes, with a further two sent to Italy with the 1st Fighter Group at Lesina. It is reported that two operational sorties were flown by the jet during WWII, however, these were non-combat missions and of a highly classified nature. The F-80C would be used extensively during the Korean War, where the aircraft would equip ten USAAF fighter/fighter bomber squadrons and one reconnaissance unit, but by then, this elegant early jet was already beginning to be outclassed. By the end of its production run, over 1700 Shooting Stars of all variants had been produced.

A02047A - 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.

Henschel Hs123A-1

A02051V - Henschel Hs123A-1

About the Aircraft:

The Henschel Hs123 biplane attack aircraft was as tough as they come; intended as a dive bomber and close air support aircraft, the Hs123 performed well during its combat introduction in the Spanish Civil War. Despite its lack of range and relatively small bomb load, the aircraft still in service at the start of WWII were sent into action, with its pilots perfecting the art of close air support for advancing ground units. 

This biplane proved to be extremely rugged and could absorb significant levels of damage, bringing their pilots home safely. Having served the Blitzkrieg attacks against Poland, France and the Low Countries, the Hs123 would come into its own during the savage fighting on the Eastern Front, where aircraft were based close to the front lines. The aircraft proved so effective, that they were only withdrawn from service in the spring of 1944 due to limited serviceable aircraft and spares.

About the Model:

In its full historic and miniture glory, Airfix are proud to present the Henschel Hs123A-1 model in 1:72 scale. With two options of livery and complete with sprues and decals, this model has all the details from its full-scale counterpart for both military enthusiasts and model makers alike. And now, the Henschel Hs123A-1 is yours to bring home and make a part of your Airfix collection today!

A02052A - Gloster Gladiator Mk.I/Mk.II

About the Aircraft:

The Gloster Gladiator was developed from the Gloster Gauntlet as a private venture, and represented both the peak and the end of the biplane fighter. In many air arms it smoothed the transition to monoplane fighters, and in confronting aircraft of its own era it performed well. 

About the Model:

Such a high-performing and equally eye-catching aircraft has well and truly deserved a spot in your Airfix collection. With two choices of livery to choose from and complete with sprues and decals, the Gloster Gladiator Mk.I/Mk.II airfix model kit is a worthy addition, not to mention a fantastic gift for military enthusiastst and model makers alike.

A02056V - Westland Whirlwind Helicopter

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.

A02058A - de Havilland Vampire T.11 / J-28C

About the Aircraft:

First entering RAF service in 1952, the De Havilland Vampire T.11 trainer was the final UK variant of Britain's second operational jet fighter and the first advanced jet trainer to adopt a side-by-side seating configuration. Unusually, the forward section of the fuselage was constructed of plywood, adopting manufacturing techniques perfected on the famous wartime Mosquito.

About the Model:

With a choice of the 'XK624 CFS Little Rissington September 1972' and 'Vampire J-28C Swedish Historic Flight liveries', what's not to love about the de Havilland Vampire model? Now in 1:72 scale and complete with Sprues and decals, you can bring this military aircraft home and rebuild the legacy for your Airfix or Military collection!

Boulton Paul Defiant Mk.I

A02069 - Boulton Paul Defiant Mk.I

About the Aircraft:

The Boulton-Paul Defiant was the only 'turret fighter' to enter service with the RAF. The Defiant used 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. 

During its first few engagements during the Battle of Britain in 1940, enemy pilots were taken by surprise and the Defiant fared well 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.

About the Model:

As an aircraft that was able to conduct such combat during the Battle of Britain, it has definitely earned a spot in any Airfix collector's range! Also featuring two livery schemes, sprues and decals, you can recreate the legacy of the Boulton Paul Defiant aircraft today!

A02070 - Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat

About the Aircraft:

The F4F Wildcat was the US Navy's primary carrier borne fighter aircraft at the start of the Second World War. Characterised by its stubby appearance the Wildcat had been developed from Gruman's successful range of pre-war biplanes and had entered service with the US Navy a year prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

By the time of the crucial battles from Midway and Guadalcanal, the F4F-4 model had become the most numerous varient and new tactics enabled American naval and marine pilots to gain the upper hand on the previously all-conquering Mitsubishi Zero.

About the Model:

The Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat Airfix kit is the absolute go-to if you are looking to expand your collection or are in search of something with a successful service history. Featuring two eye-catching livery schemes, measuring 120mm in length and 58 pieces in each kit, what's not to love about the Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat in its 1:72 scale glory?

A02099V - 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'.
