The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is a four-seat, single-engine, high-wing airplane and is among the most popular flight training aircraft in the world. First production models were delivered in 1956 and it is still in production today with the addition of the latest avionics. More than 43,000 Cessna 172’s have been built.

The Cessna Skyhawk has many outstanding features making it among the most popular small aircraft ever. Features include, ease of maintenance, economy operation, it’s easy to fly and offers relatively short take-off and landing capability. These advantages often make the Cessna 172 the first choice when flying to remote small airports and vacation destinations. This in particular makes the float equipped Cessna 172 a favorite for charter operators offering flights to remote lakes and “fishing adventure” vacations including Alaska, Canada and other remote locations world-wide.

The Skyhawk is the aircraft people most visualize when they hear the words “small plane”.
Includes rotating propeller
Detailed 4 cylinder engine

Supermarine Spitfire Mk.I R6800/LZ-N, Sqn. Ldr. Rupert ‘Lucky’ Leigh, RAF No.66 Squadron, Gravesend, Sep 1940.

For young British pilots in the late 1940s, the most exciting and enigmatic aircraft that they could possibly hope to fly was the new Supermarine Spitfire. The absolute pinnacle of aviation technology at that time, the Spitfire was a thoroughbred in every sense of the word and simply a beautiful aeroplane to look at. Just a few short months after the Spitfire entered RAF service, it would be called upon to fight for the very survival of Britain and the free world, as swarms of Luftwaffe aircraft launched massed attacks against RAF airfields and strategic targets across southern England. The handsome Spitfire would have to bare its teeth and take on the feared Messerschmitt Bf 109!

This special 60th Anniversary Collection model includes a commemorative pin badge.

The "Dambusters" transitioned to the F/A-18E Super Hornet in the fall of 2010. As part of Carrier Air Wing 5, VFA-195 is currently the only U.S. Navy fighter wing to have its fleet consist solely of Super Hornets. A Boeing® contract signed by the U.S. Department of Defense stipulates that American fleets will receive 66 more Super Hornets over the next four years. This limited edition kit features assorted parts to build a Block II upgrade version.

Decal Option:
- U.S. Navy VFA-195 "Dambusters" CAG, Code: NF400, 2011

Boston MkV Greece (RAF 13 Sqn 1945)

Hobbymaster 1:72 Boston MkV Diecast Model Airplane HA4208

http://www.minimodelshop.co.uk/diecast-model-aircraft/boston-mkv-greece-1945-diecast-model-airplane-hobbymaster-ha4208&src=gplus

#Hobbymaster #ModelAircraft #Boston #MiniModelAircraft

Hobbymaster 1:72 Boston MkV Diecast Model Airplane HA4208 This Boston MkV Greece (RAF 13 Sqn 1945) Diecast Model Airplane features working propellers. It is made by Hobbymaster and is 1:72 scale (approx. 29cm / 11.4in wingspan).

General Background
With war approaching America knew it would be called upon to aid their Allies so a new aircraft would need to be developed. Douglas Aircraft designer Ed Heinemann's DB-7/A-20 was chosen to be the new attack-bomber. The prototype flew in December 1938 with the first production aircraft flew on August 17, 1939. Production ran until September 1944 with 7,478 aircraft built. During WWII these were supplied to French, British, Australian, Dutch and Soviet forces as well as their own U.S. forces.

The Aircraft
The RAF received 90 Boston V's in October and November 1944. The Boston V (A-20K) and the Boston IV (A-20J) are the same except the IV used Wright R2600-23 engines while the V used Wright R2600-29. No 13 Squadron began in 1915 in Gosport doing reconnaissance. They joined WWII in Algeria in 1942 then Egypt and Italy before moving to Greece in September 1945. The No. 13 Squadron Boston V's were used to lead bombers and would drop flares to mark the area where the bombers should drop their loads.

Dragon 1:144 Bell X-1 Diecast Model Airplane - 51025-3 Bell X-1 Two Plane Set Diecast Model Airplane. It is made by Dragon and is 1:144 scale (approx. 6cm / 2.4in wingspan).

http://www.minimodelshop.co.uk/diecast-model-aircraft/bell-x-1-two-plane-set-last-flight-diecast-model-aircraft-dragon-51025-3&src=gplus

Dragon has announced another fine 1/144 scale model of the Bell X-1 as part of its Warbirds aircraft collection. An earlier release (Item No.51021) showed the X-1 as it appeared in its record-breaking supersonic flight. The new release differs in that it shows 46-062 as it looked during its final flight in 1951. The new set features two complete X-1 aircraft models. The first is a standard replica of this supersonic craft, while the second has a transparent fuselage that shows off the “innards” of the unique X-1. Both fully built-up and finely painted models are masterfully recreated in miniature. They also come with a sleek display stand made of metal that allows both models to be displayed “flying” together.

Westland Lynx HAS 3 (Assigned to HMS Endurance 2002)

Corgi 1:72 Westland Lynx Diecast Model Helicopter AA39007 This Westland Lynx HAS 3 (Assigned to HMS Endurance 2002) Diecast Model Helicopter is Grey and features working tail rotor, rotor. It is made by Corgi and is 1:72 scale (approx. 18cm / 7.1in rotorspan).

Westland Lynx HAS 3 ICE XZ238 (434/EE) is one of a number of helicopters, which have served on board Antarctic survey and ice patrol vessel HMS Endurance, in particularly challenging conditions. For this specific role, some of the equipment usually found on Royal Navy Lynx aircraft was removed, but the reliable Lynx proved to be essential in the effective polar operations of Endurance. Two ice modified Lynx aircraft were usually carried on board HMS Endurance, at any one time.

When considering military aviation currently in service with the world’s air forces, the helicopter is arguably the most flexible and operationally capable aircraft available to commanders. As international commitments and military requirements continue to evolve, the helicopter is becoming increasingly important to operations at home and abroad. Since the Westland Lynx was introduced in 1978, it has proved itself as one of the most advanced and capable helicopters in the world. Fast and highly adaptable, the Lynx has the distinction of being the world’s first fully aerobatic helicopter, capable of performing some quite astonishing manoeuvres. A true multirole combat aircraft, the Lynx is also a deadly tank destroyer and submarine hunter, due to remain in British service for many years to come.
