Our development team have highlighted a few of their favourites below. View the entire range and pre-order here.
AA27202 Avro Vulcan B2 XL321, No. 617 Squadron, RAF Scampton, Lincolnshire, 1964
The Avro Vulcan has to be regarded as one of the most distinctive aircraft to ever enter service with the Royal Air Force. When it was serving as Britain’s nuclear deterrent force, the mighty Vulcan was finished in an all-over anti-flash white paint scheme, which was designed to protect the aircraft if and when the Vulcan was called upon to deliver a nuclear payload.
The second release from this spectacular 1/72nd scale new tooling presents the collector with an aircraft in the markings of the famous RAF No. 617 Squadron ‘The Dambusters’ and is supplied complete with a magnetic ‘Blue Steel’ missile.
AA37807 Albatros D.III 2049/16 Ltn Hermann Goering JAFU, Jasta 27 Iseghem Aerodrome 1917
One of the definite highlights of the new range is the latest 1/48th scale WWI aircraft. This magnificent Luftwaffe Albatros D.III was the personal mount of Hermann Goering, who was to become infamous as the commander-in-chief of the Luftwaffe during WWII. He was a decorated ‘Ace’ during the Great War, with 22 aerial victories to his name.
OM46612 New Routemaster London Poppy Day
Inspired by a line in the famous First World War poem by John McCrae, Poppy Day and the centenary of the First World War was marked in London in 2014 with the wrapping of Tube and London Overground trains, Tube stations and ten London buses - including the New Routemaster seen here.
The convertible version of the E30 went into production in right-hand-drive form in June 1986, six months after the left-hand-drive domestic models. It was initially only offered with 6-cylinder engines, but in response to customer demand the more economical 4-cylinder 1800cc engine was added. This was followed in April 1991 by the 318i ‘Design Convertible’ edition which, although developed by the Motorsport division, was a purely cosmetic exercise using the standard 318i mechanical package.
