Sherman Firefly

A02341 - Sherman Firefly

As Allied forces began to move off the D-Day beaches and into the Normandy countryside, they knew they would be facing strong opposition from German Panzer units, including the feared Heavy Tank Battalions. Fortunately, they now had a tank which was capable of taking on the Tigers and Panthers, in the form of the Sherman Firefly, a British designed marriage of the M4 Sherman and their famous 17-pounder anti-tank gun. 

Usually deployed in a ratio of one Firefly to four standard Shermans, German tank commanders soon learned to look for the longer barrel of the Firefly and attempt to knock these tanks out first. In order to make identification more difficult, British crews would camouflage the front of their guns with light coloured paint, giving their tank the appearance of a standard 75mm equipped Sherman, hoping this deception would give them enough time to get in the first shot during any engagement.

A02342 - Tiger 1

About the Aircraft:

When the mighty German Tiger 1 entered service during the Autumn of 1942, it was the most advanced tank in the world and one designed specifically to dominate the battlefield. Capable of destroying anything the Allies had in service, the Tiger possessed a stand-off advantage where it could kill without being killed, picking off enemy tanks before they could even think about returning fire. Unfortunately for the Wehrmacht, the awesome potential of the Tiger was never fully realised, as it was over engineered, extremely complex and expensive to produce, ensuring that there were never enough Tigers on the battlefield at any one time.

Between 1942 and 1944, only 1,347 Tiger 1s were manufactured and, whilst it was undoubtedly one of the finest tanks ever produced, it could not hold back the ever increasing numbers of Allied armour. Highlighting this numerical disparity, American factories were able to produce over 49,000 Sherman Tanks during WWII.

About the Model:

As one of the most advanced and destructive tanks ever created, now's your chance to bring home a much-loved piece of WWII history for your Airfix range. With 2 choices of livery schemes, You can relive the victories of the technically advanced, destructive Tiger 1!

de Havilland Heron MkII

A03001V - de Havilland Heron MkII

About the Aircraft:

Building on the success of de Havillands earlier twin engined Dove small passe aircraft, the company's attempt to produce a slightly larger airliner resulted in the first flight of the Heron in May 1950. Capable of comfortably carrying 17 passes, the Heron had a low fuselage and wings than its predecessor and employed an additional pair of Gipsy Queen engines, providing reassurance for crew and passes alike. 

Early models of the aircraft were produced with a fixed undercarriage, but the Mk.II variant introduced a number of upgrades and improvements, most noticeably being the adoption of a retractable undercarriage, with the resultant reduction in drag providing a welcome performance boost. Although only 150 were built, Herons served with both the RAF and Royal Navy.

About the Model:

Exclusively from Airfix, the de Havilland Heron MkII is now yours to make a part of your model aircraft collection. An aircraft that posseses a number of additional features from its predecessors, why not upgrade your model range at the same time and bring this aircraft in 1:72 scale home today!

A03009V - Hawker Siddley Dominie T.1

About the Aircraft:

During the 1960s and 70s, the sheer variety of aircraft in service with the Royal Air Force must have made this an incredible time to be either a pilot or an aviation enthusiast. Providing the RAF with a capable air engineer, navigation and weapons system operations trainer, the distinguished looking Hawker Siddeley Dominie T.1 started life as one of the world's first practical executive business jets, with its speed and cabin space making it an ideal candidate for military service. Used to train crews destined for Britain's V bomber force, or the maritime patrol Nimrod, the Dominie would prove to be one of the RAFs most useful aircraft types and was only withdrawn from service in January 2011. 

About the Model:

Not only is this aircraft stylish, practical and full of history but is also available to add to your Airfix collection in 1:72 scale. Measuring 214mm in length and with 66 pieces in each set, both young and long-time aircraft enthusiasts and model makers alike will adore the Hawker Siddley Dominie T.1.

Handley Page Jetstream
£14.49
In Stock

A03012V - Handley Page Jetstream

About the Aircraft:

A particularly handsome looking aeroplane, the Handley Page Jetstream was a sleek twin engined turboprop aircraft designed as a regional airliner and specifically to satisfy the potentially lucrative US market. The Jetstream offered great promise, especially when an order for 20 aircraft was placed, even before the design drawings had been completed.

Re-engining the aircraft with a US Garrett TPE-331 turboprop powerplant resulted in a significant order from the USAF being placed, but this was subsequently cancelled, due to late delivery. Spiralling costs resulted in the bankruptcy of Handley Page, however, production of the Jetstream was taken over by Scottish Aviation and the Jetstream would go on to serve as the RAFs standard multi-engined pilot trainer for many years and later as an observer trainer with the Royal Navy. 

About the Model:

An aircraft posessing as much style and class as it does service history has definitely earned a spot in your Airfix model range. With a simply yet attractive paint scheme and 220mm wingspan, the Handley Page Jetstream is now available in 1:72 scale to bring home today.

A03017V - de Havilland Beaver

One of the most rugged aircraft ever built, the DHC Beaver was designed to operate in the vast and often inhospitable expanses of the Canadian north and was able to fly into areas where other aircraft simply could not go. With the ability to operate using wheels, skis or floats, the Beaver possessed outstanding STOL capabilities and was specifically designed around the requirements of bush pilots working in these challenging conditions. Also described in many aviation sources as the safest aircraft ever built, the Beaver was also used by many air arms across the world, including Britain's Army Air Corps, who operated 46 of these magnificent aircraft. They were used to great effect as reconnaissance/intelligence gathering aircraft in Northern Ireland during the 1970s and 80s.

Junkers Ju87 B-1 Stuka
£17.99
Out of Stock

A03087 - Junkers Ju87 B-1 Stuka

About the Aircraft:

The Junkers Ju87 Stuka quickly became one of the most infamous and feared weapons of the Second World War. The two-man dive bomber first saw action in the skies over Spain during the Spanish Civil War. While outdated in appearance, the Stuka did contain some modern features such as automatic dive brakes but overall the design was outmoded.


Over the skies of Poland, France and the Low Countries in 1940 the Stuka was able to operate in clear skies and did so effectively but over the South of England during the Battle of Britain, the Stuka came up against staunch RAF fighter opposition, and suffered as a result. Later the Stuka was used in the Balkans and the Western Desert, and continued to serve Russia, as a tank destroyer, until the end of the Second World War.


About the Model:

No Airfix collection is complete without an aircraft as fearsome as the Junkers Ju87 Stuka. Now available in 1:72 scale and with 2 livery schemes and sprues and decals, the Stuka will look just as powerful in your model range as it did in the sky. Order direct from Airfix today!

A03090 - Messerschmitt ME262A-2A

About the Aircraft:

Despite being the most advanced aircraft of WWII, Adolf Hitler insisted that the Me262 be developed into a fast attack bomber, diverting valuable resources from much needed fighter production. Known as the Stormbird the attack version included hard points for two 500kg bombs under the nose of the aircraft, with its speed making it almost invulnerable from Allied air interception.

About the Model:

As reassembled in the live aircraft, the Me262 model exclusively from Airfix is as powerful and eye-catching as the live aircraft itself. Featuring two livery schemes, sprues and decals, now's you chace to bring home a major part of history for your model collection with the Airfix Me262. 

LIM-5

A03092 - LIM-5

As one of the most successful post war Soviet jet fighter designs, the MiG 17 was coveted by other Warsaw Pact nations, who were keen to upgrade their own airspace defensive capabilities. Poland was granted a licence to build the aircraft in 1955 and over the next five years, around 477 aircraft were built for both Polish Air Force use and export sales.


The Polish-built MiG-17s were known as the Lim-5, which loosely translates as 'Licence built aircraft No.5'. In the hands of a skilled pilot, these aircraft could still be a tricky adversary for their Western counterparts.

Handley Page H.P.42 Heracles
£15.99
In Stock

A03172V - Handley Page H.P.42 Heracles

An elegant four engined biplane airliner from the early days of passenger air travel, the Handley Page H.P 42 was designed to serve the Empire air routes into the Middle East, Africa and India, carrying its passengers in some style. With the engines mounted well away from the passenger cabin, travel in the H.P 42 was relatively quiet and likened to travelling in a first class pullman railway carriage, which is just as well, because the aircraft's cruising speed of just 105 mph meant that any journey was likely to be a long one. The pride of Britain's pioneering Imperial Airways fleet, this giant airliner was an attempt to regain passenger flight supremacy from the German aviation industry and at the time of its introduction, it had the distinction of being the largest passenger aircraft in regular use in the world.


In total, only eight of these magnificent machines were ever built, four with larger freight and mail carrying capabilities to serve the longer range Eastern Empire routes, with a further four designated H.P 45 built to carry more passengers and intended for use on European routes - two of these would later be converted to H.P.42 configuration. Crucially, these majestic aircraft would achieve an exemplary safety record, carrying many thousands of passengers safely at a time when scheduled air travel was still in its relative infancy.
