Parts of this kit came free each month on the cover of one of those aircraft magazines, I think it was "Take Off" magazine. I can't be for certain but the kit looks like an airfix type of kitset.
Update: Actually, I think this is an Italeri kit, not an airfix one.
The Fitter is another one of those aircraft that has an aggressive look when seen from various angles. After seeing a few pics of these on the internet somewhere I just had to find myself a 1/72 kit of one.
"Su-22 is a development of the preceding Su-7 and Su-17 and its Su-20 version, which first entered operational service in 1966. Variable geometry wings permit
The Lightning was a product of the cold war and was the only British jet which was capable of mach 2 flight.
Built primarily as an interceptor, its main features were its speed and climb rate, the Lightning had an initial climb rate of 50,000 feet per minute which is better than many contemporary jets today. Not bad at all for a 1950's bird.
Wikpedia says: The de Havilland DH.112 Venom was a British postwar single-engined jet aircraft developed from the de Havilland Vampire. It served with the Royal Air Force as a single-seat fighter-bomber and two-seat night fighter.
Either way, the Venom is an aircraft which just doesn't look right not matter what angle you look at from.
Big, rugged and adaptable. The 'Hun' is another one of those aircraft that stands out due to its aggressive ugliness.
The F-100 was originally designed as a higher performance follow-on to the F-86 Sabre air superiority fighter. Adapted as a fighter bomber, the F-100 would be supplanted by the Mach 2 class F-105 Thunderchief for strike missions over North Vietnam.
The aircraft was originally known as the DH.110; an aircraft designed for both the Royal Air Force (RAF) and Fleet Air Arm (FAA) as an all-weather, missile-armed, high-speed jet fighter. The Admiralty had published a requirement for a fleet defence fighter to replace the de Havilland Sea Venom. However, the RAF chose the Gloster Javelin, a rival to the DH.110, after dec
Another aircraft from the Fleet Air Arm! I'm starting to wonder if it's a conspiracy as all of the kits that I want to build can only be found in the form of some ancient kit that has 6 pieces. In the end it was a fun build and the result was at least a step up from the original kit.
The Attacker developed from a Royal Air Force (RAF) fighter jet project, the E.10
The Supermarine Seafire was a single-seat, single-engine, carrier-based fighter-bomber used by the British Fleet Air Arm during the Korean War.
A Spitfire prototype first flew on 5 March 1936, and the first Spitfire entered Royal Air Force service in July 1938, becoming famous during the Battle of Britain as the chief opponent of the German Me-109. The Seafire w
Next in the line of agressor aircraft comes the A-4 Skyhawk built entirely out of the box from the excellent Fujimi Kit.
Tamiya's reboxing of the older Italeri kit offers great value for money for those that want a decent version of this famous attack aircraft. The Sepecat Jaguar.
