Thumbnail
The Aeronca Model 7 Champion was a two-seat high-wing cabin monoplane, used by the military as a liaison/artillery spotter aircraft, and in general aviation. Immediately after World War II, the US Lightplane market experienced a boom and Aeronca's Champion proved extremely successful.

Bell-Airacuda

Thumbnail
The Bell FM Airacuda was the first military aircraft produced by the Bell Aircraft Corporation. Originally called the "Bell Model 1," the Airacuda first flew on the first of September 1937.

Bell-P39-Airacobra

Thumbnail
The Bell P-39 Airacobra was one of the principal American fighter aircraft in service at the start of World War II. Although its mid-engine placement was innovative, the P-39 design was handicapped by the lack of an efficient turbo-supercharger, limiting it to low-altitude work. The P-39 was used with great success by the Soviet Air Force. Includes SIX versions and a Panzer Tank model to clobber with the (recently UN-classified!) FG spit-ball cannon.
$5.95

Bell-XFL-Airabonita

Thumbnail
The Bell XFL Airabonita was a US experimental shipboard interceptor developed for the US Navy in 1939. It was similar to and a parallel development of the land-based P-39 Airacobra, differing mainly in the use of a tailwheel undercarriage in place of the P-39's tricycle gear. Only one prototype was manufactured having lost out to the Vought Corsair.

Bell-XP-77

Thumbnail
Bell was the only US manufacturer to produce propeller-driven single-engined fighters with a tricycle landing gear during the war, notably the P-39 Airacobra and P-63 Kingcobra. In between these designs was the diminutive XP-77, which was an early configuration for the P-39 dusted off and redesigned to use non-strategic materials, mainly wood. The XP-77 was covered with stressed plywood that had been impregnated with plastic/resin bonding. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.

Brewster Buccaneer

Thumbnail
The Buccaneer was apparently a good design but in the hands of bumbling management and inexperienced in aircraft workers in bad production facilities is the sorry story of Brewster and it's dive bombers. This model, by Rob Carleen, is of the only remaining Brewster Buccaneer proudly displayed at the Naval Air Museum, Pensacola, Florida

Brewster Buffalo

Thumbnail
In 1935 U.S. Navy laid down specifications for a replacement for the Grumman F3F biplane equipping its four carriers. Brewster Aeronautical Corporation developed a design for a modern monoplane fighter with an enclosed cabin and retractable landing gear

Dauntless

Thumbnail
The Northrop BT-1 provided the basis for the SBD Dauntless, which began manufacture in 1940. Ed Heinemann led a team of designers who considered a development with a 1,000 horsepower Wright Cyclone powerplant. A year earlier, both the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps had placed orders for the new dive bombers, designated the SBD-1 and SBD-2 (the latter had increased fuel capacity and different armament).

Douglas Devastator

Thumbnail
This American torpedo bomber is remembered mostly for a tragic reason - the Douglas TBD Devastator fell in flames at Midway, where an entire squadron was lost in a matter of minutes. The Devastator was perfectly acceptable aircraft by prewar standards, but it came on the scene when change was occurring rapidly. By the time men and machines were pitted in combat in the Pacific, the TBD was no longer an effective warplane. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.

Grumman F3F

Thumbnail
A natural development of the FF1 two-seat naval fighter of 1931, which Grumman proposed, was a single-seat fighter, the F2F, in 1932. The larger F3F followed in 1934 and this was destined to be the last biplane fighter ordered by the Navy for deliver in 1937-38. These tubby biplanes, with their characteristic retractable landing gear (a Grumman patented design), were to keep the biplane era alive in the American fleet until 1940. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.
$10.95

Grumman Goose

Thumbnail
The Goose was Grumman’s first monoplane to fly, its first twin-engined aircraft and its first aircraft to enter commercial airline service. In postwar use, the adaptable little transport continued in use as just a fun plane to have. 5 different versions as of 8/09
$5.50

Grumman Hellcat

Thumbnail
The Grumman F6F Hellcat was a carrier-based fighter aircraft developed to replace the earlier F4F Wildcat in United States Navy service.

$5.50

Grumman Wildcat

Thumbnail
Grumman's first monoplane and one of the outstanding Naval fighters of World War II, the F4F design began in 1935 while the company's latest biplane for the USN. Production of the F4F-3 totaled 285, all by Grumman. A contemporary of the Japanese Zero.
$5.95

Hawker Hurricane

Thumbnail
With economy in mind, the Hurricane was designed using as many existing tools and jigs as possible (the aircraft was effectively a monoplane version of the successful Hawker Fury); and it was these factors that were major contributors to the aircraft's success.
$8.95

Hawker Typhoon

Thumbnail
An interceptor that failed, the Hawker Typhoon was nearly canceled before it blossomed in the finest close support aircraft of World War II. With its pugnacious snub nose, four long-barreled cannon and whining Sabre engine, the big fighter-bomber wreaked havoc on its foes. Ranging far and wide over the battlefields of northwest Europe, swarms of Typhoons made an indelible mark on the history of warfare. Comes in Camo & BW plus two sizes
$5.50

Helldiver

Thumbnail
The Curtiss SB2C Helldiver was an carrier-based dive bomber aircraft produced for the United States Navy during World War II. It replaced the Douglas SBD Dauntless in US Navy service. Despite its size, the SB2C was much faster than the SBD it replaced.

Horsa Invasion Glider

Thumbnail
Use of assault gliders by the British was prompted by the use by Germany of the DFS 230, which was first used in May 1940 to successfully assault the Eben Emael fort in Belgium. Their advantage compared to parachute assault was that the troops were landed together.
$5.95

Kingfisher

Thumbnail

North American P-82 Twin Mustang

Thumbnail
Flying in formation with itself... The immense distances between islands in the Pacific Theater required a fighter type that could fly for hours between islands, yet have its pilot fresh for combat at any time. The North American solution was its P-82 Twin Mustang. Unique concept.
$5.50

P-38 Lightning

Thumbnail
The US heavy hitter in the WWII Pacific Theater.

SNJ Texan

Thumbnail
Arguably, the best and most loved trainer ever. Produced by the thousands, many still fly today- often at airshows dressed up as scarce but noisy Zeros. The T-6 Texan was a single-engine advanced trainer aircraft designed by North American Aviation, used to train fighter pilots from all over the world..
$6.95

Spitfire

Thumbnail
There was, and still is, a public perception that it was the RAF fighter of the Battle although the more numerous Hurricane actually shouldered a greater proportion of the burden against the potent Luftwaffe.
$4.95

Vindicator

Thumbnail
The XSB2U-1 was of conventional low-wing tailwheel monoplane configuration, with the pilot and tail gunner seated in tandem under a long greenhouse-style canopy. Its only remarkable design feature was a propeller with reversible pitch, allowing it to be used to brake the aircraft during a dive bombing attack.
N/A

Vought XF5U Flying Pancake

Thumbnail
It is a great disappointment that the Vought XF5U-1 "Flying Pancake" never flew. When a test prototype, the V-173, took to the air it was unique. The XF5U-1 was based on a wing of circular shape, which was also the 'fuselage'. Designed to be capable of vertical take-off and landing, as well as very high-speed flight. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.
$7.50

Vought-Corsair-F4U

Thumbnail
The Vought F4U Corsair, at first, was unable to land on a carrier but with precise training along with new techniques it became possible. The unique 'gull' shaped wing provided clearance for the massive prop swung by a massive engine. This was a true hero in the WWII Pacific theatre. 1/13-56
$7.50

WACO CG-4 Invasion Glider

Thumbnail
The CG-4A found favor where its small size was a benefit; the CG-4A could land in smaller spaces than larger capacity aircraft. In addition, by using a fairly simple net system, an in-flight C-47 equipped with a tail hook could "pick up" a CG-4A waiting on the ground.
$5.95

YAK-3

Thumbnail
The Yakovlev Yak-3 (Russian: Як-3) was a World War II Soviet fighter aircraft regarded as one of the best fighters of the war. It was one of the smallest and lightest major combat fighters fielded by any combatant during the war, and its high power-to-weight ratio gave it excellent performance.
