1/48 Stearman PT-17 Plastic Model Kit

Stearman aircraft are twin-seat biplanes first built in the mid-1930s and popularized by their use as a trainer for military pilots. Thousands of these aircraft rolled off assembly lines and introduced American pilots to the fundamentals of being a pilot. When the war ended, thousands of surplus trainers went on to do every civilian job from crop dusting to barn-storming aerobatics. Ease of maintenance and great handling made them popular wherever they went. Kit features

1/48 BOULTON PAUL DEFIANT Mk1 by AirFix

99 parts in grey injection moulded plastic; 14 parts in clear plastic; markings for two aircraft. An interesting subject, as it became obsolete just as it came in to service. The Boulton Paul Defiant was a British interceptor aircraft that served with the Royal Air Force (RAF) during the Second World War. The Defiant was designed and built by Boulton Paul Aircraft as a "turret fighter", without any forward-firing guns. It was a contemporary of

Meng Models – P-51 D Mustang

Meng Models announced a new model for WWII Aircraft enthusiast, the Well know P-51 D version in 1/48. But what the wuzz with this particular kit? This kit will combine snap-tite or no glue mounting very similar as Bandai is doing with the Star wars line. The kit still will be a top of the line, and will require some glue alone the way, but will have a far more easier approach in the building experience

Academy F8F-1/2 USS Tarawa

The Grumman F8F Bearcat was a single-engine American fighter aircraft introduced in late World War II. It went on to serve into the mid-20th century in the United States Navy, the United States Marine Corps, and the air forces of other nations. It would be Grumman Aircraft's final piston engined fighter aircraft. Modified versions have broken speed records for piston-engined aircraft, and are popular among warbird owners. The Bearcat concept began during a meeting between Battle

Eduard’s Jug over Germany P-47

I’ve always been drawn to the P-47…I think the Thunderbolt represents to me one of the magnificent “muscle” planes of WWII. I’ve built a couple of “Jugs”, but mostly the 1:32 Hasegawa kit. So, I was thrilled when I received the 1:48 Eduard “Jugs over Germany” kit (#1179) as part of a Secret Santa exchange this past Christmas. Eduard repackaged the Academy sprues and added a lot of goodies that included PE, masks, Brassin, and

1/48 Airfix Supermarine Spitfire Mk-Vb

The Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb was the most widely produced variant of the Mk.V series of Spitfires. Entering service with the RAF in early 1941 the Mk.Vb variant incorporated a number of improvements over earlier Spitfires. Most notably it was the first common variant to be fitted with the ‘B’ wing, comprising two 20mm cannons and four .303in Browning machine guns. This gave the Mk.Vb a big increase in firepower, something lacking from the earlier all

Tamiya Vought Corsair F4U-1D

Designed around the new Pratt & Whitney 2,000HP radial engine and tuning the largest propeller ever attached to a fighter plane, the Vought F4U Corsair became a legend in its own time. The F4U-1 was the first production version of the Corsair. It had a inverted gull-wing and a framed canopy with a flat top. However many problems were found soon. For example, the port wing stall often gave the Corsair unstable landing. And another

Monogram C-47 Skytrain Plastic Model Kit

An aluminum tube 63ft. long; unheated, unpressurized, unarmored, unarmed and carrying 32 men to war through flak and fighter fire. Gooney Birds, the C-47 Skytrain, were the workhorses and warhorses of the Allies throughout WWII. They carried paratroopers into combat, brought supplies to embattled soldiers and, at the end of the war, carried them home. No model collection is complete without at least one model of the humble yet mighty C-47 Skytrain. Monogram 1/48 C-47 Skytrain Presenting

Revell 1/48 Messerschmitt Me 410B-6/R-2

Late in the war, the B-6 variant of the Me 410 was introduced as a coastal anti-shipping weapon. This impressive machine retained the massive armament capacity of the originals and added a search radar in the nose which could be used to detect Allied shipping. Most ships didn't carry heavy enough armor on their tops to defend against the Me 410's 13 and 20mm guns or the two thousand pounds of bombs they carried. FEATURES: Highly

1/48 Soviet Torpedo Bomber Tu-2T

The Tupolev Tu-2 (Development names ANT-58 and 103, NATO reporting name: Bat) was a twin-engine Soviet (high) speed daylight bomber (SDB) front line bomber (FB) aircraft of World War II vintage. The Tu-2 was tailored to meet a requirement for a high speed bomber or dive-bomber, with a large internal bomb load, and speed similar to that of a single seat fighter. Designed to challenge the German Junkers Ju 88, the Tu-2 proved comparable, and
